BuddyTV Raises $6 Million From Madrona Venture Group

BuddyTV, home to one of the web’s largest television-oriented communities, has raised $6 million in Series B funding from Madrona Venture Group. This round brings BuddyTV’s total funding to over $9 million.

BuddyTV aims to provide a comprehensive resource and community for television fans, serving up daily editorials, interviews, and discussions. Other features include a “Television Jockey” service, which allows users to stream video and audio live to other members as they share their thoughts on the latest TV events.

In June 2007 BuddyTV raised $2.8 million in a round led by Gemstar-TV Guide. Competitors to BuddyTV include MeeVee, which was recently placed on Deadpool watch.

We should note that previous rumors of BuddyTV’s acquisition by Comcast have proven to be false.
