Independent operator BendBroadand is adding TV Everywhere services for Fox News, Fox Business Channel, ESPN3, Hallmark Channel and Pac-12 Networks through an expanded pact with Synacor.
Synacor, a vendor of Web portal and TV Everywhere solutions, already provides authentication services to the Bend, Ore.-based operator for content including HBO Go and MAX Go, Hulu, and Turner Broadcasting System’s CNN, TBS, TNT, truTV, Cartoon Network and Adult Swim. BendBroadband customers are able to access TV Everywhere services that correspond with their TV package for no additional charge.
“Our customers are driving our initiatives with Synacor. Our customers want the freedom to watch their favorite programs whenever and wherever they choose,” BendBroadband director of marketing Mark Hobbs said in a statement.
Synacor powers TV Everywhere services from pay-TV providers including Charter Communications, Dish Network, Mediacom, Suddenlink, MetroCast, Midcontinent and WideOpenWest.
