Buffalo, NY and NY, NY, September 01, 2011 (Washington Bangla Radio / PRWEB) Synacor, the market leader powering next-gen portals and TV Everywhere services reaching over 30 million high-speed Internet subscribers worldwide on behalf of cable, satellite, telecom and consumer electronics companies, today showcased its TV Everywhere (TVE) White Paper, which includes integration of Turner Broadcasting's Networks and Suddenlink. Additionally, as the Netflix September 1 price hike hits, Synacor CEO and TVE expert Ron Frankel offers perspective.

According to Synacor CEO Ron Frankel, “As far as Netflix customer abandonment, don’t expect a seismic shift. The vitriol makes for a good story, but doesn’t reflect reality. We’ll see many customers drop DVDs and shift to Netflix’ streaming only offering. Growth will slow, but no wholesale desertion.”

Sharing his perspective on Netflix, Frankel said, “Want to spike your subscription rates? Drop the direct-to-consumer model and allow Netflix to be bundled along with other MVPD offerings, just like HBO, Showtime or Starz. When you look at its market cap, windowed movie catalog, and original programming aspirations, Netflix looks a lot more like an HBO rather than a competitor to cable. Bundling Netflix as part of a cable tier is a better price value-proposition for consumers. Do this and see subscription rates soar.”
