Qplay, the company that provides a media streaming TV adapter and mobile video app, is closing its service on July 25, less than six months after it launched.

A note on the company blog explains that “it is not possible for us to keep developing and running the service,” but does not go into the specifics of why it is closing down.


The company’s founders started TiVo, but this time around they were less successful. The $49 TV Adapter and recently launched iPad app — both of which curated users’ feeds from a limited number of free internet video sites — will no longer work after this coming Friday.
