The head of Verizon’s media unit Oath hinted Tuesday that the carrier’s free mobile video app, Go90, could be ending.

Content previously exclusive to the Go90 platform will be redistributed on other Oath properties like the Huffington Post, Yahoo Sports or Yahoo Finance, Oath CEO Tim Armstrong told an audience at the Code Media conference in Huntington Beach, Calif., according to Variety.   

Although Go90, which launched in late 2015, might eventually go away, the platform isn’t disappearing immediately.

“The brand will remain, I don’t know how long for,” Armstrong said.

Verizon revamped the service multiple times and slashed 155 employees last year from its Go90 mobile video product unit, replacing them with a staffers from internet video startup Vessel.  

"Go90 was a super ambitious project, which was essentially trying to start an internet mobile video service from scratch," Armstrong said. "It was highly likely we're going to stub our toe a huge number of times."
