Are There Lessons in Go90’s Failure for Jeffrey Katzenberg’s Billion-Dollar Streaming Startup?

There was a lot to like about the originals on Go90, and my sense from using the service was that the programming wasn’t the problem. Peter Berg’s docuseries QB1 about elite high school quarterbacks is fantastic, Paul Scheer and Rob Heubel’s Uber parody Drive Share was light and innovative, and The Break with Michelle Wolf executive producer Daniel Powell’s mini-series Thanksgiving is staggeringly funny and should be for Thanksgiving what National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation is for Christmas.

“People who follow the industry can barely keep up with what the new programming is on every service, and no one ever knew what was the best content was on Go90,” Hunter Sappington, a media analyst for Parks Associates, said in an interview with Decider.
