If you happen to use the BBC Store to watch some of your favorite BBC classics, your time left with the app and service is now limited. The BBC has started alerting customers that it will shut down its BBC Store website, apps — including a Windows 10 app — and service on November 1, just 18 months after launching.

In its email message to customers, the BBC notes that it has already stopped adding new content to the Store. Any content you've already purchased will continue to be available until the service's shutdown in November. Since anything purchased won't be available after the shutdown, the BBC is also full refunds or Amazon Video vouchers to purchase the content again at Amazon UK.

In a statement to Engadget, the BBC says that its decision to stop offering that content via the store was due to higher demand for streaming platforms:

Since the appetite for BBC shows on SVOD and other third party platforms is growing in the UK and abroad, it doesn't make sense for us to invest further in BBC Store where demand has not been as strong as we'd hoped in a rapidly changing market.

The BBC Store launched in November of 2015 with a slate of around 7,000 hours worth of BBC classics like Dad's Army, Fawlty Towers, and Doctor Who. If you're curious, you can continue to check out the BBC Store Windows 10 app until its November shutdown.
