Insight TV Strengthens U.S. Presence with RCN Deal


Insight TV is expanding its U.S. reach with the unveiling of its 4K UHD channel 24/7 on RCN Corporation’s digital pay-TV service.

The Insight TV launch, which began last month, is part of RCN’s distribution of multiple 4K UHD channels. RCN began rolling out its 4K-ready set-top boxes to subscribers last year. Insight TV UHD will debut along with seven 4K channels hosted by the SES Ultra HD platform. It’s available to all subscribers of the digital basic tier package that have the 4K-ready box.

Steve Corda, VP of media platforms for SES in North America, said: “Insight was one of the first channels to join SES’s Ultra HD platform in North America, which now hosts the world’s largest source of 4K linear content and live events coverage. Insight TV is on the leading edge of Ultra HD programming, with content shot natively in 4K and transmitted in HLG-HDR. We are pleased to take yet another next step in Ultra HD together, enabling RCN to offer an immersive television-viewing experience like no other.”

Angela Borrillo, VP of business and legal affairs for Insight TV, added: “We’re partnering with the world’s leading distribution providers to ensure that our 4K UHD content is delivered globally. We’re delighted to kick off 2019 with this announcement, which further highlights our growing presence in the U.S. We seek to connect audiences worldwide with exciting stories based on topics that are trending around the world.”
