Amazon cancels its first live TV show ‘Style Code Live’

Amazon has decided to end their first live TV show, Style Code Live, which aired every weeknight since its debut in March of last year. The QVC-like experimental show consisted of regular hosts Lyndsey Rodrigues, Rachel Smith, Frankie Grande, and celebrity guests giving style and beauty tips which featured products that could be purchased directly from the Amazon page where the show could be streamed for free. While Amazon has built up a strong stable of on-demand original programming, they haven’t manage to find the same success with live content.
