Yahoo cuts some broadcast services

      No Comments on Yahoo cuts some broadcast services


"Yahoo said Tuesday that it is shutting down several broadcast services, including its financial news program FinanceVision and Yahoo Radio. […] "FinanceVision was advertising-driven, and that model ceased to be enough to support (it)," Sohn said. "The proposition to provide video broadcasting was a very different proposition than hosting Web pages with text." [said Henry Sohn, Yahoo’s vice president and general manager for network services]"

That’s sad to see a clever combination of video and web such as FinanceVision go under. I wonder whether they even considered turning it into a fee-based service.
