RCN takes VOD to Manhattan
Cable overbuilder RCN Corp. launched a bundle of high-speed data and video-on-demand services to 190,000 homes in Manhattan.
The dual offering features the operator's RCN Impulse Video VOD and MegaModem high-speed data services.
RCN, which is partnering with SeaChange International and TVN Entertainment Corp. for VOD, launched on-demand services to 110,000 "marketable" homes in Brooklyn and Queens earlier this month. RCN also offers VOD in the Philadelphia area.
MegaModem, already available in seven other RCN markets, offers download speeds of 3 Mbps.
