Synacor Partners With Arkadium To Offer Engaging, Casual Games To More Than 20 Million Premium Content Subscribers

BUFFALO, N.Y., Sept. 4, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Synacor, Inc. (Nasdaq:SYNC), the leading provider of next-gen startpages, award-winning TV Everywhere solutions and cloud-based Identity Management (IDM) services, across multiple devices for cable, satellite, telecom and consumer electronics companies, today announced its partnership with Arkadium, creators of the largest library of casual games in the world. Bolstering its portfolio of content services for its MVPD and OEM customers, Synacor will offer Arkadium's casual games, including new and popular titles like Trizzle, Mahjongg Dimensions and Sparks, on the next-gen consumer portals, which are used by more than 20 million end-users looking to access premium content, news, email, support and other services from a central, customized hub.

"We're excited to partner with Synacor and extend our library of casual games to the millions of viewers across their vast network of sites," said Neal Sinno, SVP of Casual and Mobile, Arkadium. "Arkadium is at the forefront of entertaining content, and we're thrilled to expand our network by bringing our engaging casual games to their growing audience."

With the popularity of online casual gaming on the rise and revenues expected to reach $10.3 billion by 2014 ( "The Video Gaming Industry Outlook" Report, 2011), Synacor's partnership with Arkadium points to both companies' combined interest in satisfying high consumer demand for games and entertainment. By adding Arkadium's expansive library of casual games to its robust list of services and offerings, Synacor is adding value for its customers and providing a rich experience to their subscribers.

"Arkadium is a company that truly shares our vision of creating engaging experiences for consumers through compelling content, and we are thrilled to partner with them to bring these dynamic, casual games to the users of Synacor-provided startpages," said Theodore May, SVP of Strategy and Business Affairs, Synacor. "By offering Arkadium's high-quality gaming content via next-gen consumer portals, our customers can ensure their consumers are getting the most out of their online experience while simultaneously building user engagement."
