GCI taps Synacor for hosted email, TV authentication

Thursday 10 August 2017 | 16:21 CET | News
Alaskan operator GCI expanded its partnership with Synacor by entering into a new multi-year agreement. The deal includes an upgrade to Synacor’s hosted email platform and deployment of Synacor Advanced Cloud ID to simplify the subscriber login experience on connected TVs and mobile devices. Users will be able to access video content across devices without having to repeatedly enter passwords.

Synacor’s Advanced Cloud ID platform simplifies the subscriber TV Everywhere login experience anywhere end users access their services, whether in-home on their Wi-Fi network, on a connected TV or on mobile. GCI users will only have to sign in once on devices to access authenticated TV Everywhere apps. Once a user is signed into one app, any other app on any device, from participating providers will automatically log the user into all other supported apps requiring authentication.
