Synacor Scoops Up NimbleTV

The TV portal and authentication specialist announced Wednesday that it has picked up the online video company NimbleTV . No terms of the deal were disclosed. NimbleTV went live in 2012 with a TV Everywhere and DVR service that was designed to stream users’ entire pay-TV lineup over the Internet. Unlike Aereo Inc. , NimbleTV negotiated directly with programmers and paid retransmission fees before streaming content to consumers. However, the video startup didn’t create formal relationships with pay-TV operators, and that created some friction in the industry. – Mari Silbey, Light Reading
