QuickPlay Raises $12M for Mobile Video

QuickPlay Media today announced it raised a $12 million investment, led by GMP Securities and including previous investors General Catalyst Partners, JLA Ventures and Ventures West.

Toronto-based QuickPlay powers the Wi-Fi video download service for ABC, CBS and NBC and other content on BlackBerrys (see our scoop and review). Liane called the company’s PrimeTime2Go for BlackBerry “the best video quality I’ve seen on a cell phone.” However, deciding what program you want to watch, then downloading it over a solid Wi-Fi connection isn’t exactly the heights of mobility.

QuickPlay’s OpenVideo platform delivers video for more than 150 content providers, 15 major mobile operators and over 100 million subscribers. Its newest service is the SIRIUS XM radio apps for iPhone and iPod Touch.
