i.TV reportedly buys GetGlue

US mobile TV guide app i.TV has reportedly acquired second screen service GetGlue.

According to a TechCrunch report, the agreement is for an all-stock deal at an unknown valuation and is due to be announced soon.

GetGlue was previously linked to Viggle, another player in the companion TV app space, but plans by the two companies to merge collapsed earlier this year.

Viggle had previously offered US$25 million (€18.5 million) and 48.3 million shares to combine with GetGlue – a social TV app that offers content recommendations, a personalised programme guide and chat options.

i.TV claims to be the most popular mobile TV guide app, used by millions of people every month. The firm also powers social TV and second screen experiences for the likes of Huffington Post TV and AOL TV.
