Spooky films aren’t the only Halloween-related programming RCN TV will air at the end of this month. The preferred High-Speed Internet service provider based in Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania has also covered numerous Halloween parades in local communities, with programs now available On Demand, including:
- Catasauqua/North Catasauqua
- Northampton/Jack Frost
“We’re vested within our community,” said Ames. “We’re honored to be able to broadcast events that allow families within our service area to relive special moments. It’s something we are especially proud of.”
The airing of this theme block and recent parades follows on the heels of the re-launch of rcntv.rcn.com, the website dedicated entirely to the popular local channel. Visitors now experience a more personal experience when they visit. The revamped site features richer, more robust content as well as regular blog posts from local sports commentators. Gary Laubach authors the blog, “Behind the Mike” and Chris Michael writes for “The SportsTalk Shop.” Readers are encouraged to post comments and remarks at the frequently-updated blogs.
This form of interaction mirrors the company’s drive to allow their customers to become immersed in their entertainment. The interactive music video channel, SWRV, was recently added to the already extensive music channel line-up. With this innovative form of entertainment, viewers can influence the videos that next play and can even become their own VJ. Those watching are able to comment on the videos selected and rate the VJ’s performance. SWRV is available to Premiere customers in Standard Definition on channels 585 and 1903.
