Building on the Success of Olympics: TV Everywhere from Any Device

TV used to be bulky and immobile. Now, it has become mobile and can be accessed from any device with an Internet connection. “Synacor successfully provided authentication for NBC Universal’s TV Everywhere 2012 Summer Olympics on behalf of nearly 40 pay-TV customers, spanning all 50 states, reaching 25 million subscribers.”

Whether Synacor is successful in freeing up TV will depend on its ability to scale up to authenticate millions of customers, provide a bridge for hundreds of identity systems, allow social log-in from platforms such as Facebook and Google +, allow login from multiple platforms and devices and monitor suspicious account activity across multiple devices seamlessly.
