United Online Launches New Portal for NetZero and Juno Subscribers With Syndicated Digital Content from Synacor


Buffalo, NY and Woodland Hills, CA – Synacor Inc. (Nasdaq: SYNC), the trusted multiscreen technology and monetization partner for video, internet and communications providers, device manufacturers, and enterprises, today announced that United Online Advertising Network, Inc., a subsidiary of United Online, Inc. (Nasdaq: UNTD), has launched a new Web portal for its NetZero and Juno Internet access and email subscribers. The next-generation portal features syndicated digital content from Synacor, including breaking news from a dozen content providers delivering business, politics, lifestyle, tech and sports, as well as Synacor’s daily, original video program, “Don’t Miss,” covering upcoming not-to-be missed TV shows.

“We are thrilled about the launch of the new portal,” said Sam Lee, SVP Communication Segment NetZero/Juno. “Our goal with the redesign is to provide a rich, interactive experience that our members will want to visit daily. For the first time, we are able to give NetZero and Juno subscribers video content and an experience that is optimized across devices, including smartphones and tablets.” 

The new portal is cleaner, more modern and more expansive than the one it replaces. It also offers a much-improved experience when subscribers connect via a broadband connection, which is the case more than 80% of the time.

“We are excited to work with Synacor,” said Jenell Cook, VP Operations of United Online Advertising Network. “Our combined capabilities greatly improve NetZero’s ability to provide its subscribers with the cutting edge content that they expect, while also opening up new advertising opportunities for us. This is a relationship that is structured to grow as the landscape changes and as both of our businesses evolve.”

“Synacor is delighted to be working with United Online, providing video content and services to its ISP user base,” said Synacor CEO Himesh Bhise. “By rolling out our newest generation portal, United Online benefits from Synacor’s syndicated video content and monetization components. We look forward to expanding our relationship in the years ahead and helping United Online continue to deliver outstanding, multi-device experiences to its NetZero and Juno subscribers.”

NetZero offers a full range of high quality, low-priced Internet access services including high speed dial-up, home DSL, mobile broadband and home wireless broadband.
