RCN2GO empowers our customers to watch their favorite programming whenever and wherever they want – on any screen.

RCN, an industry-leading provider of high-speed Internet, digital TV and phone services, announced today that RCN customers can now experience TV Everywhere with the convenience and control of RCN2GO on their favorite Android device. The free RCN2GO app is now available for download on the Google Play store and provides on-the-go access to hundreds of shows, movies and live channels.

The RCN2GO app solidifies RCN’s ability to deliver a fully integrated TV viewing experience across all screens. Blending the intuitive and easy-to-use TiVo guide with a huge library of content that customers can access when they want, wherever they are – overall, RCN2GO includes access to programming from over 40 top networks. With the RCN2GO app, customers can watch programs live or on demand from networks like ABC, A&E, CNN, Disney, ESPN, NBC, USA Network and TNT.

“According to the April 2015 eMarketer report, time spent watching video on mobile devices will increase from 30 minutes daily among all U.S. adults in 2014 to 39 minutes per day this year. As consumer viewing evolves beyond traditional TV, RCN will continue to innovate to offer the flexibility our customers want and need,” said Chris Fenger, Chief Operating Officer for RCN. “RCN2GO empowers our customers to watch their favorite programming whenever and wherever they want – on any screen.”

The RCN2GO app for Android joins RCN’s existing iOS app for Apple devices as well as access on PCs to offer customers the freedom to access a variety of content at the touch of a button. Available for use in and out of the home, the app offers users the convenience and freedom to control how, when and where they watch TV. The easy-to-use app is offered at no added cost for RCN customers and is also available for both Apple and Android devices via iTunes and Google Play app stores, respectively. Users have the ability to watch live TV, access past and current seasons, and build personal recorded or watch lists – the RCN2GO app for Android can even be used as an extra remote control at home.
