RCN Provides Game-Changing TV App Experience

RCN Customers Can Access Hundreds of Apps on their TV at No Additional Cost


PRINCETON, NJ – February 26, 2014 –RCN, an industry-leading provider of high-speed Internet, digital TV, and phone services, is now providing customers with unlimited access to popular interactive TV apps that are accessible from the comfort of their couch. Now customers can explore social media, news, games, weather, entertainment and other apps right on their existing televisions through RCN’s new Opera TV Store on TiVo.

RCN’s Opera TV Store on TiVo is an app “storefront” offering a collection of web apps that are optimized for television screens and displayed in a layout designed for widescreen TVs. RCN TiVo customers will be able to access hundreds of popular interactive apps at no additional cost by pushing the “TiVo” button on their RCN remote controls and selecting “Apps & Games” and the “Opera TV Store” option from the TiVo Central menu.

With these new apps, RCN TiVo customers can connect to popular social media sites like Facebook, Opera for Twitter, Opera for Instagram and more. RCN’s Opera TV Store on TiVo allows customers to synchronize their existing social network account information so they can post, share and interact from their televisions. Users simply need to enter their existing account information on their RCN TiVo and connect with friends and family just as they would on their computer or mobile device. Customers can also check the weather, play games and create a personalized list of their favorite apps for easy access via all the TVs in their home.

“The launch of Opera TV Store provides our customers with a truly game-changing experience on their television. RCN is committed to bringing the best interactive entertainment to our customers. The addition of RCN’s Opera TV Store on TiVo expands the ways our customers can consume the content they want, when they want, on one of the most important screens in their home,” said Chris Fenger, Chief Operating Officer at RCN. “This new TiVo feature adds innovation, depth and more great services to our RCN offering and is another way RCN is improving our customers’ experience and delivering the most value and best choices.”

The Opera TV Store on TiVo platform is available immediately to all RCN TiVo customers. Those RCN homes that have a TiVo box installed have already been updated and can access and begin using this great new feature now. If an existing customer does not have a TiVo box, a simple phone call to the RCN Call Center can change the way you experience TV.
