Allowing these users to Sign In by pairing their social IDs to TV Everywhere access, or by accessing TV Everywhere programming through social media sites, will likely increase awareness and usage among this customer segment.
ID Linking allows consumer to Sign In with certain social credentials without concern for sharing push notifications with the social media outlet.
Social Media Sign In enables a consumer to connect to TV Everywhere content via social media web sites.
