Sky has seemingly shut down its ticketing operation, reports IQ. The news comes just a year after the company acquired ticketing start-up Una Tickets.
As previously reported, Sky Tickets launched four years ago, mainly working with sporting events. However, last year it began moving more into the music domain. As well as gaining its technology, the acquisition of Una Tickets seemed to be a further step in that direction.
Shortly after that acquisition, Sky Tickets announced that it would be the exclusive ticketing partner of Omeara, the new London venue founded by Mumford & Sons’ Ben Lovett. However, according to IQ, that deal collapsed fairly soon afterwards.
As yet, Sky has not commented on the reasons for its ticketing service going offline, or its future plans – both for its ticketing ambitions and the Una Tickets platform.[from http://ift.tt/2lvivLP]
