NimbleTV is letting their users now that their service will be shut down starting January 12th. This is the email going out to their customers:
For over a year now, NimbleTV has been delivering customers a comprehensive Internet TV offering. Weve been listening to customer feedback and analyzing an endless amount of data to truly understand what our users, and the next generation of TV viewers, want from us.
Weve been using this data to revamp our services and quickly realized that all of our efforts must be focused on innovation rather than making small incremental changes and updates to the current service.
As a result, weve decided to pause the NimbleTV service as it stands today so we can concentrate on developing something even better and more amazing than before.
As a current paying subscriber, your service will be available through Monday, January 12. After that, you will not be able to access your account or recordings. We will work with the service provider to get you a pro-rated refund for your subscription fee within the month.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Please know that you will be among the first to know when we re-launch the new and improved service later this year.
Thanks for your continued support!
All the best,
Ashley Hayes | NimbleTV Concierge “
Back in December 2014 NimbleTV announced it had stopped accepting new customers. When we contacted them for comment they sent us the following statement “We are working on improvements to the Pro product and saw a significant uptick in demand leading up to the holidays. We made the decision to temporarily pause allowing new sign-ups until those tweaks are in place.” Jasmine Moadel VP of Marketing NimbleTV. We have reached out to NimbleTV again for comment on this suspension of service but have yet to hear back from them.
If you are unfamiliar with Nimble TV they offered streaming packages of live TV shows with DVR services online. Think of them as a cable provider that only streamed online. It was a great service for people wanting US networks that lived overseas. Even premium networks like HBO could be added for extra cost. To find our more check out our review of them from last summer.
It is starting to look like Sling TV announcement may have forced NimbleTV to reconsider their service. Well Sling TV is considerable more limited the price is also cheaper.
NimbleTV service was very popular with US military families living overseas so they could watch America TV when stationed in Germany or Korea. Hopefully for them and all of NimbleTV users the service will return. If for nothing more than to be one more options for cord cutters.
