However, once Blip TV was bought by Maker Studios on August 21, 2013 (which would be then bought by Disney on March 24, 2014), things quickly went dowhill for the site. What followed then was at least two content creator purges based on how much money they were making Blip.tv, one of which happened on November 7, 2013. These purges, however, would then go on to further dammage the site's reputation and diminish its userbase until finally, in 2015, it was announced that Blip would soon stop accepting new content. Blip.tv was then shut down by Maker Studios on August 20, 2015, which, in turn made it so several archives of the site were made, including, most notably, one by Wiki/ArchiveTeam.

It should be noted, however, that most of those folks were formerly hosted Revver before some [[http://www.thatguywiththeglasses.com/site-news/general-updates/2483-revver-be-dead notably nasty stuff happened with that provider]], causing a great migration over to Blip. However, other issues with Blip involving customer support and monetary issues caused some of these people to leave Blip for another provider, Springboard (among them are TGWTG's Obscurus Lupa -- [[Creator/AllisonPregler who would then returned to Blip]] -- and [[WebVideo/ForgetAboutIt Sad Panda]]), ''before'' the former actually shut down. This means that, although a great many series were hosted on Blip back when it was still around, not all that many of them were actually lost when it shut down.

* CantCatchUp: Blip TV was once so popular it had [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blip_(website)#Popularity half as many page visits]] as Website/YouTube itself, it then started having trouble keeping up with other content streaming platforms because of its customer support and video monetization issues. To say that this played a part in its eventual demise is a ForegoneConclusion.

* {{Irony}}: In 2013, Blip TV started banning uploaders that weren't making enough money in the hopes this would end their financial troubles. This then proved to be the last straw for its userbase, however, as they simply started abandoning the platform, causing it to eventually shut down in 2015.

[[http://www.blip.tv Blip.tv]] (2005-2015) was a content provider best known for hosting web series of various kinds, the most common of which, of course, being {{Video Review Show}}s.

The site used to host videos for several notable content creators, many of which are extensively listed by this wiki, such as ''Webvideo/TheNostalgiaCritic''. However, once Blip TV was bought by Maker Studios on August 21, 2013 (which would be then bought by Disney on March 24, 2014), things quickly went dowhill for the site. What followed then was at least two content creator purges based on how much money they were making Blip.tv, one of which happened on November 7, 2013.
