Internet company Yahoo Inc. will terminate a bundled offering of special Web services next month based on consumer response to the package, though the individual features will still be available, the company said on Tuesday.
"Yahoo Plus" aggregated features such as extra e-mail storage, protection against unwanted spam e-mail, an online game creation service and streaming music in one package. The cost of the package was $3.95 per month with an annual subscription or $4.95 per month without an annual commitment.
"When we listened to our users it became clear that Yahoo Plus was not an essential service," a Yahoo spokeswoman said. "It is just this one amalgamation of premium services (to be canceled); we still offer the individual premium services."
Yahoo notified Yahoo Plus subscribers that the service will terminate on April 22.
