Yahoo! announced 12/6 it had acquired Evntlive, a live concert and event streaming video service. The company was founded in 2012 and launched in beta 4/13. 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 on Evntlive’s website:
“We are thrilled to announce that EVNTLIVE has been acquired by Yahoo! When we started EVNTLIVE in early 2012, we set out to change the way that fans engage with live music online by creating an interactive, virtual venue. Since launching our beta service in April 2013, we have live streamed hundreds of performances from amazing artists and festivals to fans all over the world.
Although our service will no longer be available, we are excited to be joining Yahoo’s video team. Click for more information about Yahoo Screen and Yahoo Music.
Thank you to our investors, fans, and the artists who helped bring our dream to life.
– The EVNTLIVE Team”
