RCN UNVEILS MASS DEPLOYMENT OF DIGITAL VIDEO RECORDER SERVICE.
RCN's DVR set-top box has advanced capability to deliver HDTV content when connected to a High Definition television and can record between 7 to 10 hours of HDTV programming on the box's hard drive. Premium bundled customers can add DVR service to their bundles for less than $11.95 per month, including HD availability.
In addition to recording and replay, RCN's DVRs also allow customers to pause and rewind live programming, an especially valuable feature for sports fans wishing to get a second look at key plays during sporting events. The interactive programming guide will enable RCN customers to control the DVR's functionality, enabling them to record an entire season of their favorite show.
"Customers can now watch their favorite programs when they want to watch them," said Rick Rioboli, senior vice president of RCN's Product Management and Development. "RCN takes care of the installation, integrates the service seamlessly with the customer's bill, and unlike other services, doesn't require a separate set-top box. All this provides for a terrific customer experience - our customers tell us they absolutely love their DVRs."
