Australian telco Optus is to shut down its mobile TV app from 28 October due to a lack of customer demand.

Speaking to Encore, a spokeswoman for Optus said the decision was taken because of a lack of customers signing up for the product. “On 28 October 2013, Optus will be shutting down the Optus Mobile TV app for commercial reasons."
“Customers who are currently subscribed to a monthly Optus Mobile TV subscription will be able to continue using their service until 28 October. Customers won’t be able to subscribe to monthly subscriptions from 23 September.”
An announcement on the company’s website says: “Unfortunately there’s no plan to bring the Optus Mobile TV app back at this time.”
