RCN’s initial 4K launch will feature a broad range of Ultra HD channels, including Insight TV, Travelxp 4K, The Country Network, NASA TV UHD, C4K360, NatureVision TV, and UHD1, as well as special 4K live events coverage. To provide this selection, RCN is leveraging the content and reach of the SES Ultra HD platform, the world’s largest single source of linear 4K programming. The SES Ultra HD Platform, supplying the linear 4K channels, will deliver the content over its satellite fleet, which has 100% cable penetration over the United States. The content is delivered seamlessly to subscribers without buffering or network congestion as can be the case with OTT 4K.
The new 4K channels will be offered in conjunction with RCN’s 4K-enabled set top boxes and Advanced TiVo Experience and voice remote. To receive the new 4K channels, customers must subscribe to RCN Signature Digital TV and have a 4K TV and 4K set-top box, along with Internet service. In addition to the new 4K programming, RCN customers can utilize 4K technology through streaming apps including Netflix, Hulu, HBOGO and more – all easily accessible with RCN’s set top boxes and voice remote.
RCN’s network delivers ultra-high-speed internet, Netflix, Hulu and HBOGO on TiVo, personalized video options and more – all accompanied by the very best customer service and the availability of internet speeds of up to 1 Gigabit. RCN is a three-time winner of PCMag’s “Readers' Choice Award for Best ISP” due to its high ratings in satisfaction, reliability and technical support. In 2018, RCN was ranked fastest ISP in the Northeast.
“With the addition of seven new 4K channels, RCN has become the premier destination for 4K content. Not only will customers enjoy a crystal-clear picture for sports, shows and movies, but also will be able to use the 4K technology with their favorite streaming apps – providing a seamless user experience,” said Chris Fenger, COO of RCN. “RCN will continue to ensure that we offer new and innovative technology, and with 4K, we deliver an enhanced viewing experience to our customers.”
“SES is thrilled to play a pivotal role in RCN’s 4K services launch to millions of customers from Chicago and Philadelphia to Boston and Washington, DC,” said Steve Corda, Vice President of Media Platforms for SES in North America. “Our SES Ultra HD platform represents the world’s largest source of 4K linear content and live events coverage, enabling RCN to offer an immersive television viewing experience like no other.”
