Orby TV has gone out of business. There has been speculation about the shut down over the past couple weeks but the company had not released a statement until today.
A message on the satellite service’s website now reads:
Dear Orby TV Customer,

News of the shut down comes after Orby TV’s website and social media accounts went dark last week, only showing a message that the service wasn’t accepting new customers at the time.
Orby TV launched in 2019, with a mission to “bring transparency back to television.” The inexpensive, no-contract service was meant to offer an alternative to cable plans and was ideal for those who wanted to break free from cable but didn’t have access to high speed internet in their area.
