Macrovision Sells TV Guide To OpenGate, Will It Change?

October 14, 2008

Macrovision has sold the magazine TV Guide to OpenGate Capital, but the question remains, will this change the magazine at all?.....Washington (ChattahBox) – Macrovision has sold the magazine TV Guide to OpenGate Capital, but the question remains, will this change the magazine at all?

The deal is expected to close on December 1, 2008, as there is no shareholder vote or anything of that nature needed for the move.

It is likely that the new ownership of OpenGate is going to bring some changes to TV Guide, but there is no telling what.

One strange part of the move though is the fact that the TV Guide web site is going ot remain with Macrovision.

This means that we could end up with a TV Guide magazine and web site which are completely different, as they are run by two different companies.

What this means for TV Guide in the future remains to be seen, as it should be an interesting ride.
