NimbleTV takes a break


In a letter to their subscribers, NimbleTV explains that they have to “pause the NimbleTV service as it stands today so we can concentrate on developing something even better and more amazing than before”.

With the NimbleTV services it was possible to stream up to 140 tv channels to any other connected device. Subscribers still needed a cable subscription which made it complementary to cable providers. Next to live streaming the channels to other devices, NimbleTV earned money with their cloud DVR services.

Since the company could have chosen to develop a new service or platform next to the current one instead of going dark, it feels like there are others reasons for the break. Maybe the company ran out of funds, maybe there are legal issues, but it seems not very likely to see the company resurface.
