  • Synacor, Inc. (SYNC) Relationship With Verizon Evolves To Offer Seamless Content Delivery Experience And TV Everywhere Services To Pay-TV Subscribers 0 comments
    May 2, 2013 10:39 AM | about stocks: SYNC

    Synacor, the premier supplier of next-gen startpages, TV Everywhere solutions, and cloud-based Identity Management (IDM) services across multiple devices for cable, satellite, telecom, and consumer electronics companies, announced yesterday that it has greatly expanded its partnership with Verizon to provide enhanced service to customers. Specifically, the new relationship will result in a single online destination from which Verizon's almost 5 million FiOS TV subscribers can access TV shows and movies. This effort culminates in the inclusion of a simple search and discovery experience, easy authentication, and the ability to log in just once, all on the My Verizon website.

    "Our work with Verizon shows Synacor's strategic positioning among consumers, content providers and distributors, making sense of this complicated TV Everywhere ecosystem on behalf of our customers and partners," said Michael Bishara, VP and GM of TV Everywhere. "Consumers want access to their favorite TV shows and movies all in one place versus endlessly searching across every channel and show website, app or individual OTT offering. Whether it's 'Game of Thrones,' 'Girls,' or even a can't miss episode of 'Real Housewives,' we want Verizon FiOS customers to find it easily on one site and with only one log in. With our customized solutions, handling programmer integrations, authentication and consumer-friendly single sign-on, we're delighted to be working with Verizon and ultimately increasing end-consumer engagement."

    Synacor's consumer-facing, engagement-developing Verizon startpage gives FiOS TV subscribers the ability to access live linear and on-demand programming from top providers like HBO, Cinemax, Showtime, SyFy, USA Network, CNBC, Telemundo, Bravo, Oxygen, Golf Channel, mun2, E!, Sprout, Style Network, MSNBC, NBC, NBC Local, NBC Sports Network, and NBC News. In addition to this powerful functionality, the site will also allow Verizon subscribers access to additional content and services such as email, games, DVR settings, and news. All of these excellent features will be available in a single comprehensive location with one log in for authentication.

    Synacor's next-gen startpages offer pay-TV providers an end-to-end tech solution that's branded, customized, and revenue-generating, while simultaneously increasing satisfaction, loyalty, and engagement among their subscribers. Providers can deliver content, services, and apps to their consumers across multiple devices, anytime and anywhere. Synacor continues to launch dozens of compelling video content options, including partners like Fox News Channel, Fox Sports, NHL, The Weather Channel, Starz, and VEVO.
