To Shut Down Next Month

(via Variety)

While more traditional TV networks are finally coming the way of the Web with their own proprietary streaming service, one of the first online streaming sites is coming to an end.

As you can imagine, when YouTube started, they weren’t the only user-generated online video site in town. was one of those sites, but due to the ever-growing ubiquitousness of YouTube, it has since fallen to the way side. Maker Studios, which used Blip as their digital platform, has been prompted to shut Blip down.

If you’ve had a sketch, web series, etc. you’ve probably got an e-mail about taking your content elsewhere by Aug. 20th, when they go offline.

This just goes to show you how much weight your name holds nowadays in the online streaming game.
