Viewster Announces Closure of it’s OMAKASE Subscription Box Service

Remember several months ago when Viewster announced it’s plans to combine a loot-crate styled box with an ad-free streaming subscription? Well after just two bi-monthly boxes being released, and two testing boxes, the service known as OMAKASE has been cancelled.
