Gray Television has announced it will add the Syncbak internet TV platform to all of its 41 TV stations.
“Gray Television was one of the very first broadcasters to launch mobile DTV service,” said Bob Prather, Gray’s president and COO. “Over the past few months, Syncbak has proven that they can provide another critical route to reach our local viewers. We are therefore excited to be able to improve our local products by adding all of our stations to the Syncbak platform.”
The Syncbak platform allows stations to stream their signals over the internet to mobile and connected devices. Syncbak uses a “location-based authentication technology” to keep station signals within its market reach.
Syncbak is being tested by all the major networks in over 150 TV stations in 98 markets. Gray Television has stations in 30 markets including Wichita, KS, Winchester, VA, Rockford, IL, and Knoxville, KY. 21 of Gray’s stations are CBS affiliates, 11 are affiliated with NBC, eight are with ABC and five are FOX affiliates.[TVNewsCheck]
