Mr. Student Body President - Go90 - Netflix

go90 is an American video streaming service, launched in October 2015 by Verizon Communications, that offers a selection of TV shows, movies, clips, and other streaming media. go90 is free, ad-supported, and does not require a subscription. From the beginning of 2016 Verizon's advertising campaign for go90 targets millennials, generation Z, and gamers. The service is available exclusively within the United States, although as of March 2018 some of its content is available internationally via Tumblr. On June 29, 2018, Verizon announced that go90 would be discontinued on July 31, 2018.

Mr. Student Body President - History - Netflix

go90 was originally formed using assets and talent acquired from Intel's unreleased OnCue streaming service, which Verizon acquired for around $200 million in January 2014. Unveiled in September 2015, go90 was described as being a mobile-first “social entertainment platform” targeting millennial demographics, featuring video content from various partners, as well as features such as the ability to join “crews” related to shows, and to create clips from its shows and share them on social networks. Verizon planned to leverage ad technology and content assets it acquired in its purchase of AOL. Verizon planned to release 50-55 new, short episode series. On January 23, 2017, it was reported that Verizon had laid off 155 go90 employees from its San Jose office, and that the staff of Verizon acquisition Vessel would be taking over its operation and redeveloping the service. Vessel's co-founder Richard Tom was appointed as chief technology officer of Verizon Digital Entertainment. In late-March 2017, go90 released a significant redesign of its mobile app, which is designed to help improve discovery and content recommendations, and prioritize live content (such as sports) within the interface. The redesign also incorporates the “motion poster” concept for advertisement displays that originated from Vessel. Chip Canter was replaced as general manager in April 2017 by Richard Tom. Despite high expectations from Verizon, go90's content did not attract a large-enough audience; in April 2017, it was reported that go90's app only had 2.1 million average monthly users. Verizon subsequently acquired Yahoo, and merged it with AOL into the subsidiary Oath. Its lead executive Tim Armstrong stated in February 2018 that go90 had been placed within the Oath division, but would likely be wound-down in the future. Armstrong admitted that go90 was a “super ambitious project”, but that it was difficult to build its brand, and that its content deals could be better-leveraged by Oath's individual properties instead. In March 2018, fellow Oath property Tumblr began to syndicate some of go90's original content internationally—which Digiday considered as being a pilot project for this strategy. After more aggressive promotion of its content across AOL and Yahoo properties, go90 had managed to increase its average monthly user count to 17 million. On June 29, 2018, Oath officially announced that go90 would be shuttered on July 31, 2018. The company stated that it would be evaluating the futures of go90's original series, and that it would “focus on building its digital-first brands at scale in sports, finance, news and entertainment for today's mobile consumers and tomorrow's 5G applications.”
