getglue“GetGlue has built an impressive product with a highly engaged audience,” said i.TV CEO, Brad Pelo. “With over 4.5 million registered users, GetGlue delivers over 1 billion social impressions every month to 100 million unique Facebook and Twitter users. With this kind of reach, it’s no wonder more than 75 TV networks partner with GetGlue to engage with their fans, and 30 media companies integrate with the GetGlue API. i.TV’s own platform of second screen services power experiences for brands like Nintendo, AOL, Huffington Post, TELUS and i.TV’s own leading TV guide application. Together, i.TV and GetGlue will reshape the social TV and second screen landscape.”

i.TV will continue to build and grow GetGlue as an independent product, while enabling GetGlue to benefit from i.TV’s platform of partners and services. GetGlue will maintain its New York City presence.

In January 2013, DigiNet reported that an $80 million acquisition of GetGlue by Viggle had been terminated.
