NBC Comedy Streaming Site ‘Seeso’ Confirms Shutting Down This Year
The “Peak TV” problem is an endless one, and streaming service after streaming service seems to spin off its own channel and packages. NBC’s Seeso at least had a more specific comedy focus, but is now confirmed to be shutting down, leaving numerous shows homeless.
Seeso launched in January 2016, becoming home to series like Dan Harmon’s HarmonQuest, Hidden America, Cyanide and Happiness and more, but in recent months seemed to quietly dial back operations. As the website confirmed Wednesday, Seeso will officially be shut down over the next year, leaving shows like There’s … Johhny! temporarily without a destination:
We say “temporarily,” as the post mentions VRV has already acquired airing rights to HarmonQuest, My Brother, My Brother and Me, Hidden America with Jonah Ray and The Cyanide and Happiness Show. Vulture reports that unsold series like Bajillion Dollar Propertie$ and Take My Wife are as-yet-uncertain what NBC will do with their shows and staffs.
Seeso cost $3.99 a month and also offered next-day streaming of NBC’s SNL and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. No date has been given for the complete shutdown, but here’s hoping the stragglers find homes in the future.
