Rovi Corporation (NASDAQ: ROVI) today announced that RCN, a leading broadband services provider delivering all-digital and high definition video, high-speed internet and premium voice services, has renewed its multi-year agreement to license Rovi’s Passport® Guide software, applications and television data.
In its campaign to go 100% digital in its Boston, Chicago, metro Washington, D.C., New York and Pennsylvania markets, RCN eliminated all analog programming. To receive RCN’s all digital programming, a set top box is now needed.

“In the highly evolving entertainment landscape, we understand the importance of providing our customer base with the best digital television offering available,” said Jason Nealis, Senior Director of Video Product and Operations for RCN. “This extends beyond the addition of HD channels and requires an advanced programming guide that can help consumers easily navigate, sort, select and record television programming.”

In addition, the agreement will enable RCN to transition to Rovi television data, which provides data for more than 2.5 million programs, with that list growing daily. With more than 50 years of television data experience, Rovi’s television data provides insightful program descriptions, rich media content, celebrity biographies and TV schedules to connect consumers to their favorite programs and help them discover new ones.

“Our relationship with RCN demonstrates our commitment to deliver on RCN’s long-term business needs through our guidance solutions, including the Passport® Guide, applications and television data,” said Bob Shallow, SVP of Worldwide Sales, Service Providers. “We are pleased to work with RCN as it continues to expand the capability and reach of digital television to customers in North America.”

Rovi’s Passport® Guide is a high resolution interactive application suite created to support Motorola, Cisco and other compatible set-top boxes. RCN selected Rovi to provide its customers with an advanced digital entertainment experience that includes the latest Passport® Guide release enhancements:

• Attractive new high resolution display graphics and fonts for Motorola DCT2500, DCT700 and other set tops boxes for an improved visual experience;
• Automatic tuning to an HD channel when a consumer is tuned to a standard definition channel and a high definition channel is available;
• The ability to recover previously deleted DVR recordings with the new Lost & Found feature;
• New search and discovery capabilities that make it easier for consumers to discover more about their favorite shows, actors and directors.
