Just four days into 2016, Yahoo is making good on a plans announced at the end of 2015. The struggling tech giant has shut down Yahoo Screen, a 5-year-old digital video platform that housed its original series, its first livestream of an NFL game, and old episodes of Saturday Night Live.

"At Yahoo, we're constantly reviewing and iterating on our products as we strive to create the best user experience," said a Yahoo rep.
