It's "The End" for the HTC Watch movie service at the end of this month
At the end of this month, HTC is closing its HTC Watch movie sales and rental store. Users of the service received a notice from the Taiwan based manufacturer. Up until March 31st, subscribers to the service will be still able to purchase movies although access to each user's library will end on April 1st. HTC suggests that users download to their current device before April 1st, any movies purchased. You can use the HTC Watch app to perform this deed.

As they say in the movie biz, this is "The End" for HTC Watch. Back in May of last year, the service was closed in areas like Denmark, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain and Sweden where it was hardly used by HTC device owners.

Of course, there are plenty of places where Android users can find streaming videos to purchase or rent. The service also had to compete with the Google Play Store, which is where we assume current HTC Watch users will end up.
