In a market that is getting more crowded by the day, it is maybe no surprise that a streaming service is shutting down. Today Flixster announced that they will be shutting down their streaming service.
According to a statement on the Flixster site as of August 28th 2017 the Flixster Video US service will no longer be supported. Flixster goes on to say “Flixster Video customers can still redeem codes and access their UltraViolet video collections by linking their UltraViolet accounts to Vudu, another UltraViolet retailer.” So the good news is you will still be able to access your movies just not on Flixster.
Here is the Q&A about what Flixster users should do now.
