Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) June 22, 2012
Building upon its reputation as the area’s best and most complete digital cable company in Philadelphia, RCN is adding Disney Junior to its already sizable family offerings. The new 24-hour channel, aimed at children ages 2-7 and their parents, will be available in both high definition and standard definition.
Sensing the enthusiasm from customers for more family programming and knowing that Disney Junior would benefit parents, RCN added the exciting new channel to its Philadelphia cable schedule.
“As the most complete digital cable company in the Philadelphia area, RCN always wants to provide quality programming to our customers,” Vice President & General Manager of RCN Philadelphia Sanford Ames, Jr. said. “When Disney Junior became available, we jumped on the chance to add this unique, fun, 24-hour channel to our cable service so that our younger viewers and their parents could watch and learn together.”
As the premiere digital cable provider in the Philadelphia area, RCN already offers a wide variety of quality children’s programming. RCN adds Disney Junior to a kids’ channel lineup that includes The Disney Channel and its spinoffs, a variety of PBS channels, Animal Planet, Cartoon Network, ABC Family, Discovery Channel, a variety of Nickelodeon channels, The Science Channel and many more.
As part of its digital cable service, RCN also offers the best cable deals in Philadelphia on premium family channels, such as HBO Family, Showtime Family Zone, Starz Kids & Family and a variety of multicultural channels.
A leader in crisp digital TV, RCN is making Disney Junior available in stunning high definition as well as standard definition.
Many of RCN’s family-oriented channels often are offered in both high definition and standard definition. With RCN’s outstanding cable service, the Philadelphia cable company includes many children’s channels among the 65 free ones it offers to customers for ordering an HD converter box instead of a standard unit - a perk that other cable providers don’t make available.
Disney Junior was introduced on RCN earlier this year as a programming block on the original Disney Channel, a channel that the Philadelphia cable provider has offered families for years as one of its original cable deals. Now available as its own 24-hour channel in both high and standard definition, Disney Junior is available in RCN’s full Philadelphia cable lineup.
Disney Junior features original series as well as the “Playhouse Disney” programming block from the original Disney Channel. Shows on Disney Junior include “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse,” “Jake and the Never Land Pirates,” “Octonauts,” “Doc McStuffins” and “3rd & Bird.” The family entertainment doesn’t stop there. Disney Junior also has a corresponding website, social media accounts, YouTube profile and more to encourage viewers to engage with the channel’s content in multiple ways.
As one of the best cable companies and internet providers in Philadelphia, RCN helps viewers connect with that online content through a variety of high-speed Internet packages, made speedy with fiber-optic cable. RCN also offers McAfee anti-virus and PC security products to help protect users while browsing the web. Internet and cable deal packages are available.
