As we announced on our blog last month, Showyou was acquired in December 2015 by Vevo. We are incredibly excited to help make Vevo the very best place on the Internet for music fans to watch and listen to the music they love and connect with their favorite artists.
But to do that we will discontinue operation of the Showyou service this Sunday so that we can apply all our energy towards making the Vevo apps and service as awesome as possible. We notified the registered users of Showyou of this change several weeks ago, but thought we should also post a notice here in the event you turn on Showyou next week and are wondering what’s going on.
We’re proud of Showyou and what we built, and sad this chapter is coming to a close. For those of you who have come to depend on Showyou for your daily dose of entertainment and information we’d like to recommend the following worthy substitutes: Pocket (great for bookmarking videos and articles); Flipboard (great way to discover media through social connections on your phone or tablet); and of course YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook and Twitter. And if you love music and music videos, we hope you’ll try out the Vevo app and service if you haven’t already done that.
We appreciate everyone who downloaded Showyou on their phones and tablets, or used our service on the web. Thank you for your support over the past four years.
