What Is “GetGlue” ?

GetGlue is a social networking website for Television fans. Users “check-in” to the shows, movies and sports that they consume using a website, mobile website, or a device-specific application.

The service was launched in June 2010 by AdaptiveBlue, a NYC-based company.

Viggle.com, a competition to GetGlue, agreed to acquire the social network on November 19, 2012 for $25 M in cash and 48.3M shares of Viggle stock, valuing GetGlue at approximately $85M. On January 13th, 2013 Alex Iskold announced on GetGlue Blog that merger with Viggle is terminated and GetGlue will remain an independent company.

In November 2010 GetGlue was called a leader in the emerging social entertainment TV by Bloomberg.

GetGlue partners include 20th Century Fox, The CW, AMC, ABC Family, Disney Theatrical, Discovery, ESPN, FOX, Food Network, Hachette, HBO, HGTV, MTV, MSNBC, Showtime, Penguin, PBS, WWE, Random House, Simon and Schuster, Syfy, Sony Pictures, Travel Channel, USA Network, Universal Pictures, and Warner Bros. theatrical.
