DivX to shut down video download site

Posted by Wolfgang Gruener

DivX announced that it will shut down its video download site Stage6 on February 28. The company said that it “explored” strategic options for Stage6 as early as July 2007, but decided that it would best to cease operation of the service.

Videos on Stage6 will be available for viewing and download through February 28, 2008. Content on the site will be migrated to “alternative web distribution platforms,” DivX said.
