Midcontinent authenticating via social media
Midcontinent is among the first service providers to offer their subscribers Social Login as a means to simultaneously authenticate for TV Everywhere content when logging in on Facebook, Twitter or Google.
Midcontinent began offering TV Everywhere last summer, using the cloud-based platform hosted by Synacor. The Social Login feature implemented by Midcontinent is one also enabled by Synacor.
When Midcontinent subscribers sign in to their social accounts with Facebook, Twitter or Google, they can be simultaneously authorized with Midcontinent’s billing account.
“Through Synacor’s Social Login offering, we’re ensuring our subscribers have an easier way than ever before to access the content they want,” said Pat McAdaragh, CEO, Midcontinent.
Synacor’s Cloud ID Management Platform provides authentication services for TV Everywhere, Messaging, Value Added Services and Identity Management Services. These capabilities help consumer electronics companies, app developers and programmers to provide a secure and trusted identity management solution to their end-consumers.
