Chill.com is closing down its premium content distribution platform by December 15. Maybe selling content like Louis CK isn’t that easy, after all?
Just when you thought Chill.com had tried everything, it evloves egain: The former Turntable.fm for videos turned social video curation platform launched a self-serve content marketplace for indie creators Thursday, allowing anyone to sell their flicks as streams and DRM-free downloads.
Chill.com has all but abandoned its Turntable.fm-like group chat rooms and is now focusing squarely on social video discovery. The startup’s founder Brian Norgard likened the new approach to the way people interact with content in media-focused social networks like Instagram and Path.
Chill users can now watch the latest TV shows on the social video platform, thanks to an integration of Hulu’s content. However, get ready to set your alarms if you want to chill on Chill.com while watching House: Hulu’s shows will run synchronized and scheduled.
