Samsung's Milk Video gets shut down one year after launch
posted by Paul K. / Sep 29, 2015, 5:19 AM
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.

I buy carriers ones and its still not installed. The last phone I bought had the icon for Milk Music, but it was just a shortcut to the app in Galaxy Apps. It had to be downloaded. So no, it isn't bloatware. I dont know any phone where many Samsung apps are preinstalled. They are usually links to the app in their store.

Milk music is actually really good, I can't wait to get a new Samsung phone so I can go back to using it.

First of all, I didn't even know Milk Video existed. Thought it was just Milk Music. Second, Why call it Milk? I would assume they'd call it Galaxy Music or something related.

Cant call it Galaxy Music. Apple fans would accuse Samsung of name copying.

"Milk Video" sounds like a porn service. So no surprise here.
