Guitar Hero Live’s GHTV discontinued in December 2018


All good things must come to an end.

Guitar Hero Live‘s GHTV streaming service will be discontinued at the end of the year, Activision Blizzard has today confirmed.

The service, which replaced traditional DLC, will be discontinued on 1 December 2018, removing access to more than 200 songs currently available. This means that players will be left with just 42 on-disc songs for Guitar Hero Live.

“Sure, you’re never going to own the content you’re playing in GHTV,” I wrote of the service in my Guitar Hero Live review, “but I’m quite alright with a steady stream of new content at my fingertips.”

Looks like that stream has come to an end.

In-game GHTV purchases have been disabled as of 1 June, as has access to the iOS version of the game (though those who’ve already downloaded the mobile title can play it until December).

Guitar Hero Live is currently available on Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4, Wii U and iOS.
