Arqiva to shut down SeeSaw in a month

Online video-on-demand service to bite the dust

SeeSaw will be shut down if it isn't sold by June 30, 2011, as the owner Arqiva is no longer able to support it.

The service, which was launched in February 2010, "no longer fits with the strategic direction" of Arqiva. A spokesperson said that it was not very likely for SeeSaw to find a buyer.

A post on SeeSaw's official blog titled "Important News about SeeSaw", thanked all their supporters and informed them about the service's closure.

"As it will soon be goodbye from SeeSaw, we’d like to take this opportunity to say a big thanks for all your support, custom and loyalty over the last 16 months," it said.

It continued to say: "We’re a small team but we hope we’ve made a big difference and that you’ve had fun watching TV with us."

Arqiva is a partner in YouView, a BBC project, for video-on-demand.
