Yahoo Acquires Evntlive, a Concert Streaming Video Service
Yahoo announced Friday it had acquired Evntlive, a streaming video startup that broadcasts live concerts and events to online viewers.
The company was founded in 2012 and launched the beta version of its service in April.
As a result of the acquisition, Evntlive will shut down its existing service, and its employees will join Yahoo’s video team to work on Yahoo Screen and Yahoo Music, according to a statement made on Evntlive’s website on Friday afternoon.
Evntlive had previously raised about $2.3 million in seed funding from investors such as Vint Cerf, Yogen Dalal, Ellen Levy and Steve Wadsworth, among others, according to CrunchBase data.
Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
