Tesco has announced to close its free online video streaming service, Clubcard TV, on 28 October 2014, due to lack of interest by its Clubcard community. The retailer now wants to focus on its Blinkbox TV streaming service.
- Clubcard TV service offered to free Tesco Clubcard accountholders was launched in March 2013 and provides access to movies and television shows.
- Clubcard members can earn points on purchases from Blinkbox Movies although shoppers will not be able to watch content on Clubcard TV site.
It has also come to light that Blinkbox is under review as it does not fit into Tesco's core strategy and could be closed down or sold.
