NBCUniversal is shutting down Seeso, its streaming service for comedy fans

Subscription streaming service Seeso will be shutting down later this year. The NBCUniversal-owned service made the announcement today on Facebook.

It was revealed earlier that several Seeso originals, including HarmonQuest and My Brother My Brother and Me, will be moving to Vrv, a gamer- and geek-focused streaming video service from digital media company Ellation.

Seeso launched at the beginning of 2016, offering a mix of originals and classic comedies all ad-free for a subscription price of $3.99 per month.

That’s a lot cheaper than many other streaming video subscriptions, but perhaps the niche was just too small, particularly when viewers can get plenty of comedy on Netflix and other services. Back in June, Deadline revealed that the team had had layoffs and that NBCUniversal was reassessing the business model.
