Comcast Buying TV Community BuddyTV


BuddyTV, the community that’s founded around pop culture television, is being acquired by Comcast.

BuddyTV took a loan of $250K from the Charles River Ventures’ Quick Start Seed Funding program back in May, before taking a $2.8 million investment from Gemstar-TV Guide this summer.

It seems likely that BuddyTV will be used in conjunction with Comcast’s site, as well as Fandango, which it acquired in the earlier this year. No word yet on the size of the deal…BuddyTV denied it first and then didn’t respond to further queries, and Comcast PR had no comment.

Comcast recently launched its new TV info and community site Fancast, so BuddyTV would probably be integrated into the new site.
