Aggregator.tv has gone into administration. The service was designed to be a high quality video-on-demand service in niche sectors delivered over broadband. A buyer is now being sought.
Steve Scott, Head of UI (pictured), confirmed the news to tbites today after the firm failed to secure a second round of funding. Backers included 3i, Intel and Amadeus Capital Partners. "I'm not able to give much more info, save to say we are currently talking to potential buyers for the assets of the company (platform and content)", said Scott via email. Aggregator's TV portals include Railtv.tv (a global site for railway enthusiasts), moe.tv, (Russian TV and Films), joesbox.tv (Full Movie Download) and Joiningthedots.tv (Download Independent Documentary Films). Paul Cleghorn, who has co-founded Tape It Off The Internet, another online TV-oriented startup, freelanced for Aggregator last year.
