Samsung's Milk Video gets shut down one year after launch

Last year, Samsung launched its own video streaming service – Milk Video. It's a Galaxy-exclusive service, which holds contents from College Humor, Cracked, Buzzfeed, Funny or Die, Vice, Vanity Fair, VICE, Red Bull, Vevo, AwesomenessTV, and more. The social aspect to Milk Video is a pretty familiar ordeal – you can follow channels, brands, and individuals, repost your favorite videos for your own followers to see, or share them via other social media, such as Facebook or Twitter.

Does all of this sound familiar? If by now, you are wondering "Why would anyone use this over YouTube?", you are probably also pretty close to guessing that Milk Video hasn't been the best used service for the past year. In fact, Samsung has announced that it will be shutting the service down, come November the 20th, 2015 – exactly one year and one day after its debut. The company will continue to support its music streaming app – Milk Music.
