RCN Lights Up Android App

RCN’s TV Everywhere platform has expanded to the Android platform with the debut of a new RCN2Go app that is powered by a TiVo-based interface and search platform.

RCN said the authenticated app, also offered on Web browsers and iOS devices, provides access to programming from more than 40 networks, including live and VOD fare from ABC, A&E, CNN, Disney, ESPN, NBC, USA Network and TNT. Users can also tap the app to set DVR recordings, browse for shows and movies up to 14 days out, and, in the home, use the mobile device as a second TV screen or remote control.

“As consumer viewing evolves beyond traditional TV, RCN will continue to innovate to offer the flexibility our customers want and need,” said Chris Fenger, COO of RCN, in a statement. “RCN2GO empowers our customers to watch their favorite programming whenever and wherever they want – on any screen.”
