Stevie Brings its Unique Take on Social TV to the iPhone and Grabs $1.5m Funding from Horizons Ventures (The Next Web)

Stevie, the quirkily-named, TV-focused startup that emerged from Microsoft’s Azure Accelerator in Israel earlier this year, has announced a $1.5m Series-A funding round and the launch of its app on the iPhone. Stevie takes videos from users’ Facebook and Twitter feeds along with other content from around the Web and presents it all in a format perfect for TVs. That doesn’t preclude it from consumption elsewhere though. In addition to signing a deal to bring its service to the Xbox 360, Stevie offers iPad, Windows 8 and Web apps, as well as iPhone and Android apps for remotely controlling the Stevie experience.
