Flixster Video Ceasing Operations

28 Aug, 2017 By: Erik Gruenwedel

Flixster Video, the download and streaming service operated by online movie app Flixster.com, is ceasing operations as of Aug. 28. The move does not affect Flixster.com.

In a post to users, Flixster said it would no longer support code redemption or streaming and downloading of content. It cited circumstances “beyond our control” related to the unexpected shutdown of a “critical vendor.”

Flixster said users would be able to redeem digital codes and access UltraViolet movie collections by linking with Walmart-owned Vudu.com and FandangoNow.com.

“Using their services should solve the issues you currently have with Flixster Video,” Flixster said on its FAQ page.

Fandango in 2016 bought Warner Bros.-owned Flixster and rating service Rotten Tomatoes in an equity deal that made the studio a minority owner of the ticket service.

A representative from Fandango was not immediately available for comment.
