"We are both pleased and inspired that our investors share this vision with OnLive," he continued. "Not only do they see the value in OnLive in particular, but they also understand the significance of what OnLive is doing to lead a massive sea change in interactive media distribution. We are grateful that they have not only provided OnLive with their support, but they have also provided OnLive with such a strong endorsement."
The Series C, or third round, of funding included participation from AT&T Media Holdings, Lauder Partners, Warner Bros., Autodesk, and Maverick Capital. The company notes that Warner Bros., Autodesk, and Maverick Capital had all contributed to previous rounds of investment, and that the Series C funding was "by far OnLive's largest closing." Specific details of the investment were not disclosed.
OnLive appears to be on track for its launch this winter.

its a great idea, but alot of people will have to upgrade the internet connection, i imagen if you game for 20hrs a week then youd be looking at needing at least 20gb-30gb+ per month thats alot of streaming going on there
