GCN, the Global Cycling Network, have announced that popular app and online channel GCN+ will be permanently closed.
The service, that showcases some of the world’s best cycling films along with a weekly show and live racing, will cease on December 19, 2023. The company say current subscribers will be refunded on a pro-rata basis.
GCN’s YouTube channels and website will remain unchanged.
In a short statement GCN said:
‘This decision comes from our 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, making it easier for customers to access and discover more content.
‘In Europe, GCN+ subscribers will now have the option to subscribe to access Discovery+, Eurosport or Eurosport Extra, where you can continue to watch live cycling. In markets outside of Europe, WBD is reviewing how content is delivered to its fans.
Pro-rata refunds will be given to subscribers from December 19 onwards.’
