Social TV Company Miso Raises $4 Million From Khosla, Google, and Hearst
Miso is a social TV company that has raised $4 million in funding from Khosla Ventures, Google Ventures, and Hearst Interactive Media. Now Miso has raised a total of $6 million. When Miso first launched, they were a “check-in” app for TV shows.
Now Miso has gone beyond check-in to offer a full social experience for TV content. Miso has an app gallery, ratings system, chatter stream, and user generated platform for people to ask questions about TV content.
Miso also partnered with cable companies to create second screen experiences. Miso has partnerships in place with DIRECTV and AT&T U-Verse to allow the app communicate with TV receivers to find out what is on TV at any given moment and where they are in the show.
