All things come to an end some day, and it looks like that day is coming for HTC's Watch service. For those who don't remember, Watch is HTC's movie streaming service that comes pre-loaded on the manufacturer's smartphones...

"Unfortunately, not too many people seem to be using it". That's because htc watch is only available to certain countries, when I went to singapore and opened htc watch it said"sorry,the detected region is not supported by the htc watch service"

Use it? I've never even heard of it. Is HTC's Watch available in the US?

I do use it. Only to watch trailers right now, but most of my digital rentals and purchases will be through Watch (assuming US doesn't discontinue it). It's not as stacked as Google Play, but it allows for DLNA streaming (unlike the afformentioned store *rolling eyes*). They also have weekly deals for movies, the $3.99 section.
