Zynga (ZNGA +4%) and Synacor (SYNC +1.9%) open higher after the companies strike a deal that gives Synacor's pay-TV industry customers the option to offer Zynga's games on their portal homepages, and to include Zynga virtual currency in their subscription bundles. Synacor's customer base includes Verizon, Time Warner Cable, and CenturyLink.
