HTC, Taiwan based company, is shutting down its movie service "HTC Watch" in 6 European countries. The company has just announced that it is closing of HTC Watch movie stores in Netherlands, Denmark, Spain, Sweden, Norway by May 31st.
"As we continue to deliver new content for HTC Watch, we've made the decision to focus our efforts on markets with the highest engagement. After May 31, we'll discontinue support for HTC Watch in countries with less application traffic."
While for Italy, streaming movie service will be shutdown on the 15th May according to Engadget. HTC has just launched this streaming movie service last year with the HTC Sensation. But due to less application response from the above mentioned countries, it is now closing the service.
The statement of HTC Team email according to Telefonino(translated), "As a user of the HTC Watch service we would like to inform you that the store will no longer be available from 15 May. Until that date, you will still be able to purchase movies from HTC Watch shop as usual. Do not worry, this does not affect in any way the film that has already purchased, you will still be able to access its library and re-download them."
Its a bad news for HTC Watch users in these countries. Spain is the only country out of 6 where Google Play Movies service is supported. While no Google Play service is available in the other five countries where HTC Watch is going to close.
