Rdio shuts down video-on-demand service Vdio

Posted Dec 28, 2013

Rdio is a music streaming service that competes with Pandora and Spotify. The company also used to run a video-on-demand startup called Vdio.

Rdio will refund any purchases and they stopped accepting transactions on Friday. Rdio is offering Amazon.com gift cards for any purchases or rentals that have not expired.

“Despite our efforts, we were not able to deliver the differentiated customer experience we had hoped for,” said Rdio in a statement that was posted on Vdio. “We want to thank all customers who have tried our service, and we have given gift cards to all those who have purchased content or have unused rental content.”
