It’s all about control

Comcast-owned online ticket-seller, Fandango, has recently acquired Rotten Tomatoes and Flixster from Time Warner Inc’s Warner Bros. This news come hot on the heels of the company’s recent acquisition of M-GO, a video streaming service that offers streaming on mobile apps. As part of the deal, Fandango will be able to incorporate Rotten Tomatoes’ movie reviews on its ticketing platform and add its ticketing function to the Flixster mobile app. With these new additions, Fandango has the means to offering moviegoers just about anything you could think of from movie reviews and recommendations, to movie tickets, and even video streaming at home. In short, Comcast may soon have total control over the way people discover and experience movies.
