NextMovie picks up Film.com.
MTV Networks site NextMovie has acquired Film.com, the company announced last week.
MTV Networks is part of publicly traded Viacom.
This was not a domain name purchase; it was a full fledged web business. Film.com has a U.S. Quantcast rank of about 15,000.
Still, it’s always noteworthy to see web sites built on fantastic domains like this change hands.
I searched Viacom’s SEC filings and can’t find any information about the acquisition. It was probably fairly small for the $25 billion (market cap) company. But we might get more information in the company’s next quarterly report.
(Thanks to DNW reader Josh Sexton for bringing this acquisition to my attention.)
