In an exercise to increase brand identity, RCN Corp. is opening its RCN Music and RCN Games services beyond its subscriber base. Previously, the company marketed exclusively to subscribers within its service areas. Now anyone can access the two services via RCN’s Web site.
Availability of RCN’s subscription portable music download service, RCN MusicToGo, enables downloads to MP3 players or other portable devices that support Windows Media Player 10 for $13.95 per month.
RCN Games includes free games, like Sudoku, Quest and Gutterball, Chess, Star Hockey and Texas Hold ’em Poker. A large selection of games are also available for purchase by download, all including a 60-minute free trial, such as Cake Mania, Big Kahuna Reef, Poppit! Show, Hidden Expedition Titanic, and Chicktionary, many of which are widely available from other sources.
