A quick review of the store seems to confirm this news, even if it's not been made public. Very little new content has been added recently. A key programme being 'Mexico' which although now on Ep3 is nowhere to be seen in the store but has been on iTunes for a fortnight. No new Horizons have been added for a while too.
Their Twitter account has all but gone silent too.
EDIT ... I've spent £141 in the Store since opening.
EDIT 2 ... from Broadcast tonight
Download service could shut after 18-months
BBC Worldwide has kicked off a review of BBC Store which could result in the closure of the 18-month old download-to-own service.
The service, which enables consumers to buy digital versions of BBC and indie shows including Doctor Who and Line Of Duty from around £3.99 per episode, finally launched in spring 2015 after plans were first unveiled early in 2012.
The UK-only service, overseen by BBCW chief digital officer Jonathan Green, has been left looking increasingly outdated following the continued rise of SVoD services such as Amazon Video and Netflix, which also offer BBC programming.
The corporation’s commercial arm is understood to be keen to ensure it generates the best possible return for its programming.
