Millennium taps Synacor for premium broadband content
Millennium Digital Media is the latest MSO to offer a bundle of premium broadband content via a partnership with Synacor.
Using content from Synacor's partners, Millennium has launched bundled subscription content packages under the "MyCableSpeed" banner to customers in Washington, Oregon, Michigan and Maryland.
The operator's CableSpeed Secure Plus package includes content and services from AmericanGreetings.com, B-secure (PC protection software), Clever Island (an educational Web site for children), CNN NewsPass and CNN QuickCast, Encyclopeadia Britannica Online, NASCAR.com TrackPass and PitCommand, Shockwave.com's GameBlast, and Weather.com.
Millennium is offering those content services through "Portelus," a technology platform from Synacor that handles authentication, provisioning and a unified login for all services provided through Synacor.
Synacor also has similar deals with Adelphia Communications, RCN Corp., Knology and Armstrong Cable.
