BlackBerry today announced that it will supplement its OS with the Amazon Appstore. Tucked away in that announcement was the news that BlackBerry is shuttering the music and video sections of BlackBerry World, meaning we will soon see an end to the digital content side of BB World. Anyone wishing to purchase media will have to turn to the third party apps available on BlackBerry World because the video and music sections will be closed on July 21, 2014. Users will still be able to download content that they have already purchased, but no new sales or updates will take place after next month.
