SageTV has been acquired by Google
I didn’t see this coming! I just received the below e-mail. Congratulations to Jeff and the rest of the SageTV team.
We’re writing to let you know that SageTV has been acquired by Google.
Since 2002, we’ve worked to change the TV viewing experience by building
cutting-edge software and technology that allows you to create and control
your media center from multiple devices. And as the media landscape
continues to evolve, we think it’s time our vision of entertainment
management grows as well. By teaming up with Google, we believe our ideas
will reach an even larger audience of users worldwide on many different
products, platforms and services.
We’ve seen how Google’s developer efforts are designed to stimulate
innovation across the web, and as developers have played a core role in the
success of SageTV, we think our shared vision for open technology will help
us advance the online entertainment experience.
Although we will be shutting down the SageTV store, we will continue to
support existing users. We’d also like to continue our dialog with the
SageTV community by keeping the forum open for discussion.
We really appreciate everyone’s support over the years, and we hope you’ll
stay tuned as we embark on new projects at Google.
The SageTV team
