Global Cycling Network (GCN) has announced that GCN+ and its associated app will close down on Tuesday, December 19, in all countries and regions.
According to a statement released by GCN, the decision comes from its parent company Warner Bros. Discovery (WBD) and is driven by its global strategy “to consolidate its streaming services, and to offer content in fewer places”.
In Europe, GCN+ subscribers will now have the option to subscribe to access Discovery+, Eurosport or Eurosport Extra, where customers can continue to watch live cycling.
Within the statement, a spokesperson for GCN said: “We’re really proud of everything we have achieved with GCN+ and the GCN App over the last four years, from all of the live race coverage to the 200+ films that we made.
“We also want to add, for the sake of all the people who have worked so hard on GCN+ and the GCN App, that the reason for its closure is not because the two platforms didn’t work or were underperforming.
