Google raises stakes in video, acquires Episodic

Search giant buys San Francisco online video platform start-up. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Episodic, a San Francisco online video platform start-up, has been acquired by Google, the privately held company said Friday on its blog.

Terms of the deal were not released. The company said new sign-ups of its service are being suspended during the transition but that existing customers won't be affected.

As Google continues to raise its game around YouTube, it's only natural that a company like Episodic--which focuses on things like analytics, content management, monetization, mobile, and syndication--would be appealing to the search and ad giant.
