RCN Corp. will carry ESPN Broadband as part of its MegaModem high-speed cable modem service at no additional cost through the rest of this year, the company says.

RCN's MegaModem service offers download speeds of up to 3 Mbps.

ESPN Broadband will offer RCN's customers VOD programming, including game highlights, extended interviews, commentary and analysis and behind-the-scenes coverage; video clips of programs such as "The Life," "The X-Games Execution Series" and "Pardon the Interruption"; and live feeds from ESPN Radio.

RCN recently launched HDTV in several of its markets that included ESPN's HD television network.

RCN has more than 1 million customer connections and provides service in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Lehigh Valley, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Washington D.C.
