4thMedia – personalized media to mobile

Stealth startup 4thMedia has been building a personalized streaming service for mobiles that is expected to launch sometime this year. 4thMedia will enable you to search, discover and publish any audio/video content to your mobile phone. Want to try the service? Try the beta form.

The Denver based startup is led by Andrew MacFarlane, who was the co-founder of Software.com. Software.com had merged with Phone.com in 2000 to create Openwave. 4thMedia has raised at least $2million in funding from Series A round. Investors at the startup include Matrix Partners, Spark Capital, and few private investors. I think they might have raised more than that. Will be back with precise numbers sometime later.
