    Lousy if people lost their jobs, but I'm actually glad to see one of the streaming services go kaput. Maybe now companies will start to realize consumers don't want a thousand different streaming services, each with their own app and content.

    As people said, I hope no one is loosing a job due to this, but I won’t miss having to log onto it to watch something that is just kind of “meh”.

    Not sure how Machinima is connected to Go90 other than they used Go90 for streaming their content. So Go90's death does not necessarily mean Machinima is dead too. Just my $0.02

    I'm not terribly surprised by this since there wasn't a compelling reason to use it, plus the marketing for it wasn't very good. The service itself I thought was pretty good.

    Go90 was a terrible name. It sounded like some hacking stream site. I do hope to at least finish the last PotP episode

    I think people were more referring to Machinima taking some kind of hit because of the cancellation of this platform. Not sure how, considering The Prime Wars Trilogy was ending before it was to be shut down anyway, but still.

    No worse than Go90. Go 90 what? MPH? Go 90 year-olds? Go #90 for a sports team?
