Synacor to Showcase Cloud ID Social Login with Google+ Sign-In for TV
Everywhere Sites and Apps, Google I/O, May 15-17, Moscone West Convention
Center, San Francisco, Calif.

BUFFALO, N.Y., May 14, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Synacor Inc. (Nasdaq:SYNC),
the leading provider of next-gen startpages, award-winning TV Everywhere
solutions, and cloud-based Identity Management (IDM) services, across multiple
devices for cable, satellite, telecom and consumer electronics companies, will
demo Cloud ID Social Login with Google+ and advanced TV Everywhere
technologies in the Developer Sandbox at Google I/O, May 15-17, Moscone West
Convention Center in San Francisco, Calif. Developers and technologists will
discuss with Synacor how Social Login, recently named as a TMC Cable Spotlight
Product of the Year, was built to break down TV Everywhere barriers, and how
they can integrate similar technologies for their customers.

"See you in the Sandbox! Synacor couldn't be more proud than to accept
Google's invitation to demo our Cloud ID Social Login and TV Everywhere
innovations during Google I/O 2013," said Michael Bishara, Vice President and
General Manager of TV Everywhere, Synacor. "And we're excited Synacor's kiosk
will display the special designation Google+ Badge, as we leverage the Google+
platform in our Social Login capability for consumers to access their favorite
pay-TV shows, movies, music and more, providing a fun, friction-free TV
Everywhere experience."

Having been an industry first, Social Login gives Synacor customers the
flexibility to offer subscribers access to online pay-TV content with their
favorite social accounts, like Google+, Facebook and Twitter, while
simultaneously authorizing with the subscriber's pay-TV provider or billing
account. Through the award-winning Cloud ID Management Platform, Synacor
brings the convenience of Social Login to TV Everywhere consumers with the
trust of entitlement verification for TV authorization. Additionally, TV
Everywhere users have the option to install their MVPD's TV Everywhere Android
app over-the-air after they sign in with Google+, making it more convenient
than ever to access content wherever they are.

Synacor's Cloud ID Management Platform provides authentication services for TV
Everywhere, Messaging, Value Added Services and Identity Management Services.
These capabilities help cable, satellite, telecom, consumer electronics
companies, and app developers, and programmers provide a secure and trusted
identity management solution for their end-consumers.

Google I/O is an annual developer conference featuring highly technical,
in-depth sessions, and showcasing the latest from Google's product teams and
partners. The Developer Sandbox showcases demos from a wide range of
developers who have built applications based on technologies and products that
are featured at I/O.
