Synacor Acquires NimbleTV, Startup That Streamed Live TV Online

Synacor, which provides technology and services to TV, Internet and communications providers, has acquired NimbleTV, a startup that sold a service to cable and telco TV subscribers for accessing live channels and DVR recordings over the Internet.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed. The NimbleTV transaction is part acqui-hire, according to Synacor CEO Himesh Bhise. The start's team of 12 employees is joining Synacor with the deal.

We are adding to Synacor a team steeped in video expertise, as well as an acquisition of technology that will enable us to deploy an authenticated, linear TV service on behalf of our clients, Bhise said in announcing the pact.

With NimbleTV, Synacor said it will be able to accelerate video-product development and client commitments, as well as better leverage client TV rights. Synacor also picks up patents that bolster its Cloud ID authentication offering.

Founded in January 2011, New York-based NimbleTV had raised about $6.5 million in funding from Tribune Media, Greycroft Partners, Tribeca Venture Partners and angel investors.

For NimbleTV, becoming part of Synacor's unique business model and layering into Synacor’s video product road map is a logical and exciting next step,” NimbleTV founder and CEO Anand Subramanian said in a statement. We bring consumer-tested video technology and patents to the table at a time when Synacor customers are looking to leverage new advancements with OTT and TVE (TV Everywhere) video, especially live linear.

Last week NimbleTV informed subscribers that it was shutting down its service. In a notice sent to customers, the company said it was ceasing the service Jan. 12 but added it planned to launch an even better product. Evidently, the shutdown was prelude to the Synacor deal.

NimbleTV offered the service in New York for subscribers of Cablevision SystemsOptimum, Time Warner Cable, Verizon FiOS and RCN and expanded into in the Chicago metro area to residents with existing Comcast Xfinity and AT&T U-verse TV subscriptions. Its service started at $4.99 per month for 10 hours of cloud-based DVR storage. Its Pro TV& plans offered a selection of cable and premium cable channels starting at $29.98 per month with a minimum of 20 hours of DVR space.

But the startup never had deals with any of those cable or telco TV providers, or with programmers. Instead, NimbleTV said, it confirmed users; existing subscriptions and channel lineups through operators, online portals and then streamed live TV and DVR recordings from its centralized data centers to various Internet devices.

That may have rubbed some operators and programmers the wrong way, given that NimbleTV was basically piggybacking on their existing customer relationships. Now, under the aegis of Synacor, NimbleTV’s technology will be positioned as helping pay-TV providers and others deliver live-streaming video services more quickly.

We see a fragmented landscape of vendors and believe our customers are looking to Synacor as a one-stop, trusted partner, Bhise said. NimbleTV is another step toward expanding our team and platform to deliver end-to-end, advanced video solutions.

As part of Synacor's acquisition of assets, NimbleTV's technology will be integrated into Synacor overall video platform.

Divan.TV, a Ukrainian developer of OTT middleware and pay TV channels with 125,000 users in Ukraine, has made its programs available worldwide, targeting Russian- and Ukrainian speaking audiences.

According to the company, this audience reaches about 80 million households in total, including 16 million in Ukraine, 32 million in Russia and more than 30 million in other countries across the globe. This corresponds to an up to 300-million global audience.

However, not only does the company compete with satellite and cable operators that offer Russian channels in their pay TV packages, it also faces harsh competition from pirated content providers.

-We plan to serve up to two million customers in upcoming 3-4 years, - said company co-founder Andrey Kolodyuk.

To be successful in more than 200 foreign markets, Divan.TV plans to spend millions of dollars and reach the breakeven point in less than 3 years,- according to Kolodyuk.

Divan.TV will open head-offices in the United States (California) and Russia (Moscow), in addition to its existing office and R&D department in Ukraine.

Kolodyuk funded the company at the seed stage in 2008, and other investors came in 2012, Divan TV's press service told East-West Digital News.

The company is now raising a new round of financing with the help of AVentures, a leading Ukrainian venture fund managed by Kolodyuk.
