As streaming services are becoming a quick-growing industry, social media users were disappointed to hear the exclusive streaming service, AdmitMe.tv, said goodbye to their users without warning on Sunday morning.
AdmitMe Says Goodbye
Members of AdmitMe shared their heartbreak on social media after talk of the site’s shutdown began to spread. Members of AdmitMe were greeted with a goodbye note that did not go into details about the shutdown. “However the time has come for us to close this chapter,” the goodbye note read.

An Exclusive Streaming Service
Before the site said goodbye users were greeted with a blank light blue screen with a simple login box. One noticeable difference between AdmitMe and other sites is that there was nowhere to sign up. The service was only accessible through a friend’s account or by invitation from an existing user.
Reviews.com reported people frequently begging for invites on Twitter and even offering to pay for an invite. In October a Twitter user offering to sell their personal AdmitMe account claimed you could no longer send invites to new users.
Social media users have spread the word of AdmitMe’s shutdown on both Twitter and Reddit. On a thread in r/Privacy, users have already begun looking for alternatives. It has been reported that once you gained access to AdmitMe you could watch basically any TV show or movie you ever think of, even if they were new releases. In general, AdmitMe’s services were said to be like mainstream services and above the majority of competitor pirated streaming services.
