Syncbak to Carry Gray Television Stations
Allows in-market streaming to mobile devices
ATLANTA-- Gray Television announced today that all 41 of its television stations will be carried on the Internet TV platform owned by Syncbak. Syncbak’s Internet TV platform uses location-based authentication technology to enable local television stations to stream their signal to in-market consumers. By partnering with Syncbak, Gray is able to replicate its existing national, local and affiliate partnerships on the Internet and mobile devices.

Gray said it has been testing Syncbak’s system at four of its stations for the past several months. After evaluation, Gray decided to launch all of our television stations commercially on Syncbak’s platform.  Consequently, in the coming weeks, the following Gray stations will stream on Syncbak all programs within their schedules that have been cleared for streaming to the local viewers within each station’s market. Gray’s combined TV station group reaches approximately 6.2 percent of total U.S. households.

Syncbak said it’s technology is being tested in more than 150 television stations in 98 markets by CBS, ABC, Fox, NBC and CW affiliates.
