RCN LAUNCHES ESPN BROADBAND FOR HIGH SPEED MODEM CUSTOMERS.

RCN Corporation (NASDAQ:RCNC) has launched ESPN Broadband for its high-speed cable modem customers. New and existing subscribers can now watch their favorite sports highlights, commentary, analysis, behind-the-scenes footage, and original content on their PC. For the remainder of 2003, RCN is offering ESPN Broadband to all their high-speed data customers at no additional cost.

"ESPN Broadband and RCN's MegaModem service are a perfect combination. MegaModem, with download speeds of up to 3Mbps, - twice as fast as standard cable modem or DSL - was designed for customers that demand more from their cable modem service. Together they will allow sports fans to bring their online sport experience to a whole new level," said Rick Rioboli, vice president of product management and development.

ESPN Broadband brings RCN high-speed customers:

-- Crystal clear video on-demand programming covering sports including game highlights, extended interviews, commentary and analysis and behind-the-scenes coverage

-- Video clips of insightful programs such as The Life, The X-Games Execution Series and Pardon the Interruption

-- Live feed from ESPN Radio 24/7 and 15 programs archived daily

-- SportsCenter promotional spots

-- Access to footage from the X Games and Winter X Games

-- A customizable Bottomline allowing users to stay current with top headlines, statistics, and scores from all major sports throughout the day

"RCN recently launched HDTV in several of its markets including ESPN's high-definition television network. Now sports fans can experience the richest sports content available on their PC and TV, all from one company," said Rioboli.
