Princeton, NJ –September 20, 2016 - RCN, award-winning provider of high-speed internet, digital TV and phone services, and DOGTV, the first and only television network created and scientifically proven to increase confidence and independence in dogs, today announced distribution to customers in Boston, Chicago, Philadelphia, Lehigh Valley, Washington D.C. and New York City.
“We want to provide RCN customers with the best entertainment for all members of the family and that includes pets,” said Chris Fenger, Chief Operating Officer for RCN. “Adding DOGTV to the lineup is a unique addition for our customers. It’s easy accessibility through RCN On Demand and with the wide variety of visuals to choose from, our customers will feel confident that their pets are happy and calm at home with DOGTV.”
RCN customers and their furry best friends will now be able to add the DOGTV channel to their On Demand Service for just $4.99/month. Once added, dogs will be able to watch television programming scientifically proven to de-stress, decrease separation anxiety and increase confidence and happiness. Programming on DOGTV is specially designed around a dog’s sense of vision and hearing and supports their natural behavior patterns. DOGTV works in partnership with the Humane Society of the United States and their Pets for Life program, aimed at providing assistance to pets and people in underserved communities.
"With its significant presence in many of the most important dog markets in the United States, RCN makes a perfect partner for DOGTV. Launching a service together will be a great addition to its lineup and will help improve the lives of its dog-owning households." said Gilad Neumann, CEO of DOGTV Channel. "DOGTV provides the perfect combination of entertainment to ease boredom and loneliness of pups that are home alone and we are certain that RCN subscribers can soon attest to that.”
DOGTV programming is split into three categories – relaxation, stimulation and exposure – that work collaboratively to provide just the right balance for the daily routines of stay-at-home dogs.
DOGTV is easily accessible through RCN On Demand. Customers with access should turn to Channel 1, select “Special Interests” and then select “DOGTV.” DOGTV is available for order now to all RCN customers with the Limited Basic Cable package and up.
