“Time Warner’s Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Group on Wednesday said it has agreed to acquire Flixster, the movie discovery service with over 25 million worldwide users per month that also includes film review site Rotten Tomatoes. […]
Under the terms of the deal, Flixster will continue to operate independently and will expand its services beyond movie discovery to enable digital content ownership and delivery across connected digital devices.
The Flixster team will stay in San Francisco, and the Rotten Tomatoes team will continue to work independently from Los Angeles.“
This can’t be good news when the reviewer is now owned by the reviewed even independence is claimed.
