[ Business]

Google, as you may know, is in the process of trying to acquire Motorola Mobility. Motorola Mobility, however, is doing some acquiring of its own. So, as long as everything doesn’t fall apart like it did for AT&T and T-Mobile, this should essentially equal an acquisition for Google.

Peter Kafka at AllThingsD reports that Motorola Mobility has acquired SetJam, which provides online video listings and data.

It includes Hulu, Netflix, Amazon, Cartoon Network, MTV, Disney, Nickelodeon, Adult Swim, Spike, iTunes, TBS, CBS, WB, FX, South Park Studios, Comedy Central, CrunchRoll, FOX, TNT and Crackle as its sources.

SetJam offers web widgets, a downloadable database (XML), REST API and custom intergration for various players via data partnerships, product strategies, interface design, custom data and custom development.

“At SetJam, we’re fully dedicated to making online TV as simple as traditional TV,” the company says. “That’s why, in addition to our 3 product lines, we’re offering custom integration services, to help you bring the power of online TV & movie content to your device or application.”

As we discussed when Google’s acquisition of Motorola Mobility was first announced, Google would be getting much more than just a phone maker. Motorola offers set-top boxes, for example. The SetJam acquisition would appera to play into this.

According to its site, SetJam itself is currently hiring.
