It must be disconcerting to a big Internet company to shut down a whole website and nobody even notices. Not even a short note on Twitter from a concerned user until now. But that’s what apparently happened.
If anyone knows when exactly this shut down, we want to know. It at least needs a proper burial before dropping into the deadpool. We’ve also got an email in to Yahoo PR.
Thanks for noticing, @charliebravo.
Update: From Yahoo:
After careful consideration, we officially closed the Bix site on June 30, 2009. We initially notified our users that this was happening on
June 1st, and provided them with instructions on how to download their video content.
This is part of the ongoing prioritization efforts at Yahoo!, where we are increasing investment in some areas while scaling back in others.
