It shut down last week, around the same time Vine did.

For those who don't know, it was a streaming video service similar to YouTube, but they had a lot of big-name content creators on there signed to one-week early access deals, so if you paid for an optional subscription, you could get some content a week early - meaning more revenue and ad-share for the content creators.

I actually liked it, mainly for Linus Tech Tips, but it got bought by everyone's favourite company, Verizon, who shut it down with like, 4 days notice.

I hate YouTube, if I am honest, but it's got the monopoly. I really think someone else needs to rise up and compete seriously with them, but even sites like Dailymotion just can't seem to get traction.
