Synacor Expands Partnership With Verizon FiOS To Offer Seamless Content Delivery Experience And TV Everywhere Services To Pay-TV Subscribers

BUFFALO, N.Y., May 1, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Synacor, Inc. (Nasdaq:SYNC), leading provider 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, today announced it has expanded its relationship with Verizon to offer the company's nearly 5 million FiOS TV subscribers access to TV shows and movies from one online destination. The My Verizon website now includes a simple search and discovery experience, easy authentication, and the ability to log in just once.

"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 Verizon startpage (found here) drives engagement and allows FiOS TV subscribers 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. This site also gives Verizon subscribers access to additional content and services like email, games, DVR settings and news – all in one location, and all with a single 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, 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.
