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 that Cloud ID Social Login has received a 2012 Cable Spotlight Product of the Year Award from Cable.TMCnet.com, a TMC sponsored cable technology website.
Cloud ID Social Login, an industry first, gives Synacor customers the ability to offer consumers access to online pay-TV content with their favorite social accounts, like Facebook, Twitter or Google+. The offering simultaneously authorizes with the subscriber’s pay-TV provider or billing account. Synacor Cloud ID brings the convenience of Social Login to TV Everywhere consumers with the trust of entitlement verification for TV authorization.
“Thank you, TMC, for the great honor of awarding Synacor’s Cloud ID Social Login as a 2012 Cable Spotlight Product of the Year. We couldn’t be more proud,” said Michael Bishara, VP and GM of TV Everywhere, Synacor. “And Synacor is just getting started. If 80% of pay-TV subscribers don’t know TV Everywhere exists, and if only 10% of those who do know it exists are using it, we’ve got a long way to go! Cloud ID Social Login is part of Synacor’s comprehensive effort to make the TV Everywhere experience fun, friction-free and a good time for consumers. Watching TV, no matter what screen you’re on, should be fun. Keep an eye on more TV Everywhere innovations coming from Synacor.”
