Recently one of the hottest services in cord cutting has been SiMeTV. With SiMeTV you could stream ABC, CBS, The CW, FOX, PBS, and more for $10 a month after a 7-day free trial.
This has raised a lot of questions about its being legal. Many are pointing to the fact that Roku and Apple both offer the service in their official app stores, so it must be legal. Yet questions linger. They stream NBC from South Florida, ABC from New York City, and FOX from Buffalo, New York leaving many to wonder how they are doing that. SiMeTV even offers content from Canada like CBC and City.
Cord Cutters News reached out to SiMeTV to learn more about the service. The only email we received was an email asking how we learned of the service as it should not be available in the United States. We emailed back with follow up questions but never heard back.
Now SiMeTV has started to contact subscribers in the United States informing them that they are ending their service in the United States on August 8th, 2019. This is actually a return to SiMeTV’s old practice as recently as last year of only offering the service outside of the United States. Sadly we don’t know why but hopefully they will post more information about why soon.
