LOS ANGELES (AP) — Warner Bros. says it will buy Flixster, a movie-discovery service on millions of smartphones, and the movie-review site Rotten Tomatoes.
The movie studio of Time Warner Inc. said Wednesday that Flixster will operate independently. Rotten Tomatoes is a subsidiary of Flixster.
Warner Bros. also said it plans to use Flixster to help launch a service that will allow people to access digital copies of home movies they have purchased, regardless of which studio made them.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
