Rdio shutters Vdio, hits rewind on video-streaming efforts
Vdio quickly offered individuals an option to hire or purchase motion pictures and TV shows.
Vdio, an offshoot carrier from tune-streaming firm Radio, has pressed the stop button on its internet and iPad video offering not up to 12 months after launching to rival Apple and Amazon within the pay-to-play digital video industry.
“We’ve got made up our minds to discontinue the Vdio beta carrier,” the Vdio website now reads. “Regardless of our efforts, we weren’t ready to deliver the differentiated customer expertise we had hoped for.”
Video lets audiences hire and purchase motion pictures and television shows and create video playlists to share with pals. After a delicate launch in April, the web video provider opened its doorways to everyone in us and UK in June.

Radio vice chairman of Product Malt he Sigurdsson before now said that Vdio was once a part of the company’s better technique to be a “full-fledged leisure carrier,” though that technique now seems to had been overly bold.
The corporate mentioned that people who paid for Video content could have their money refunded in Amazon credits, and the titles will not be on hand for streaming.
