We’ve had Jinni on our radar for quite some time now. The Israeli startup, which is something of a Pandora for online video, movies and television shows, is making waves with its taste-and-mood based recommendation engine. Now they are ready to take their services to the next level, with the announcement that they have just closed $5 million in Series B funding, led by Belgacom and a Tier-1 connected-TV manufacturer. DFJ Tamir Fishman Ventures, who led the site’s Series A funding round, also participated.
A press release sent to us by Nikki Ralston over at Jinni says that, “Jinni will continue developing its award winning taste-and-mood based video guide to power content consumption over TV, Web and Mobile.”
