BuddyTV Receives $2.8 Million for Social Community around TV Shows
July 30, 2007

BuddyTV received $2.8 Million from Gemstar-TV Guide International (the TVGuide.com people).

What does BuddyTV do?

BuddyTV is a social community built around the common interest of TV shows.

VCU says:

BuddyTV is a niche social network. The niche is TV programming. You may create a profile as on any other social network, and interact with others. Take a look at their TV show listing page to find a show you are interested in discussing.

The BuddyTV staff creates original articles, news, spoilers, and interviews on an extremely broad range of television content. They have a forum where fans from all over the world can discuss and connect with other fans about their favorite TV shows. BuddyTV also enables fans, networks, and studios to conduct TVj “Television Jockey” broadcasts which allows these people to broadcast live audio, video, text, and polls around their favorite content.

As we have said before, it was only a matter of time before social networks were created around niche interests.
