Synacor and Mediacom Communications Extend Partnership to Offer TV Everywhere
Services to Subscribers

Through Synacor's Startpages, Mediacom Subscribers Have Seamless Access to
Must-See Programming From HBO, Cinemax, Turner Broadcast, NBCUniversal and
More

BUFFALO, N.Y., Aug. 21, 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,
today announced it has renewed its relationship with Mediacom Communications,
the nation's eighth largest cable television company. Mediacom's 1.3 million
customers, many of whom are in the Midwest and Southern regions of the United
States, will have seamless access to TV shows and movies from one intuitive
Mediacom website.

Following Synacor's recent participation at the NCTA Cable Show where it
demonstrated its newest innovations in TV Everywhere, the agreement extends
Synacor and Mediacom's four-year relationship and signals an intensified
effort by both parties toward advancing adoption of cross-device content
delivery to subscribers. With multi-device emerging as the way content is
consumed, Synacor and Mediacom acknowledge pay-TV subscribers expect to enjoy
their favorite TV shows and movies on the device of their choosing, any time,
anywhere.

"Providing first-class customer care and delivering easy-to-use products and
services are our top priorities," said David McNaughton, Mediacom's SVP of
Marketing. "Offering a greater array of TV Everywhere content so our customers
can enjoy their favorite content at home or on the go is an important
advancement in our offering, and we appreciate the marketplace foresight
Synacor has as well as their responsiveness in both consumer experience and
collaborating with Mediacom."

Synacor's consumer-facing Mediacom startpage allows subscribers to access
programming from top providers like HBO, Cinemax, TBS, TNT, CNN, Adult Swim,
Cartoon Network, NBC, MSNBC, USA, Bravo, Style, E!, Oxygen, NBC Sports, Golf
Channel, Telemundo, Mun2, Syfy, Fox.com and Big10. This site also gives
Mediacom subscribers access to additional content and services from one online
location with a single login for authentication.

"The evolution of multichannel content consumption offers a unique opportunity
for providers like Mediacom to embrace TV Everywhere and connect with
subscribers wherever they are," said Michael Bishara, SVP of Product and GM of
TV Everywhere, Synacor. "Synacor understands the complicated TV Everywhere
ecosystem and the needs of both the provider and subscriber. With our highly
customized solutions and consumer-friendly authentication, we're excited to
continue our work with Mediacom expanding their TV Everywhere offering and
ultimately increasing subscriber engagement."

Synacor's next-gen startpages offer pay-TV providers an end-to-end tech
solution that's branded, customized and revenue-generating, while
simultaneously increasing satisfaction, loyalty and engagement among their
subscribers. Providers can deliver content, services and apps to their
