Synacor to power Cable One’s TV Everywhere services
Cable One has tabbed Synacor for the launch of its TV Everywhere services, as well as its customer Web portal.
On the TV Everywhere front, Cable One will use Synacor’s TV Everywhere platform that includes video aggregation, mediation and single sign-on authentication, as well as back office integration with cable operators' rights, I.D. and billing systems. Synacor also provides metadata that helps subscribers find the content they want through search and discovery features.
“By leveraging Synacor’s online content and services authentication platform, Cable One is able to not just satisfy, but delight our subscribers,” said Cable One CTO Steve Fox. “We are able to easily integrate Synacor’s solutions with our existing infrastructure, which will allow us to deploy TV Everywhere quickly and easily.”
Synacor will also design and power Cable One’s new consumer-facing website, giving subscribers access to content, services and news from a central, customizable hub.
“We’re pleased to have Synacor onboard to expand our online presence and provide key content and services to our subscribers,” said Jerry McKenna, senior vice president and chief sales and marketing officer at Cable One. “With Synacor’s solutions, Cable One subscribers can access the latest TV Everywhere shows, movies, sports and news right from their homepage.”
Synacor, which counts Charter Communications and CenturyLink among its customers, became a publicly traded company last month.
Phoenix-based Cable One, the nation’s 10th-largest cable operator, has its triple-play services in 690,000 households.
