The TV experience gets a little bit better with friends. Launched in 2010, GetGlue is a social TV app that enables users to check-in to TV programs, Sports and Movies, sharing check-ins with other users and engaging in conversation.
GetGlue was acquired by i.TV in November 2013 and will reportedly change its name to TVTag next week. A message on GetGlue’s website says “GetGlue is becoming tvtag!”
GetGlue launched in June 2010, and is headquartered in New York City. One year after launch, the service was seeing more than 12 million check-ins annually. Today the service has more than 4.5 million users.
In 2011, GetGlue partnered with DirecTV to promote programming and allow users to check-in onscreen. GetGlue has since partnered with a number of networks.
Since its initial round of funding, GetGlue has raised more than $25 million in venture capital.
