RCN Rolls 4K-Ready Box in Lehigh Valley

RCN Corp. said it has begun to roll out a 4K-ready box to customers in Lehigh Valley, Pa., that integrates the operator’s pay TV service with some OTT content.

RCN’s rollout there includes cities such as Bethlehem, Easton and Allentown.

The device is made by Arris and is powered by TiVo’s software and user interface. The remote also supports a remote finder and a dedicated button for Netflix, which features a small but growing 4K library.

Arris’s MG2 Cable Media Gateway is an HDR- and 4K-capable, six-tuner device with a 1-TB hard drive and integrated MoCA 2.0

The 4K-facing agreement expands on a collaboration between RCN and TiVo that started in 2009.
