Synacor, provider of next-gen startpages, TV Everywhere solutions and cloud-based Identity Management (IDM) services 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 customised 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.”
