US Cable teams with Synacor to offer subscribers expanded access to online video content

US Cable, with some 100,000 customers in six states, is rolling out a new user-defined homepage for subscribers looking to get more Internet video content, including selections from CBC, CNN, Starz, and more.

The page comes from personalized homepage and online entertainment specialist Synacor, and is designed to help pay-TV operators strengthen the value of their broadband offerings.

"The Synacor platform enriches our broadband offerings, allowing us to seamlessly expand our online services," said US Cable Vice President of Operations, Joe Appio. "Our relationship with Synacor will position us well to deliver more value to our consumers online."

Added-value services are becoming increasingly important to pay-TV operators as consumers increasingly explore over-the-top video offerings from services like Netflix and Hulu.
