RCN Cable To Add Setanta Sports

RCN Cable and Setanta Sports announced today (Nov. 26th) that Setanta would be joining the RCN Cable line-up on Nov. 30th, 2008.  Carriage will be on all RCN systems that are "all digital" as channel 549.   This includes the service areas of Boston, Chicago, New York City, Philadelphia, and Washington, DC as well as other cities in the US.   A free preview of Setanta Sports will be available from December 8th through 22nd.   Fans who are customers of RCN can call 1-800-746-4726 or visit http://www.rcn.com to subscribe for $14.95 per month.   RCN has indicated that areas not currently all digital will gain Setanta when they are converted to all digital in near future.   With the addition of RCN, Setanta is now available on at least some of the cable systems of Cox, Comcast, RCN, and AT&T U-verse as well as the satellite services of DirecTV and DISH, the fiber optic Verizon FiOS systems, and the IPTV providers GekTV and NexTV.

Setanta Gains First Major Cable Contract

Setanta Sports has finally gained distribution on one of the major cable companies in the USA.   It was announced on Wednesday and confirmed today that Setanta will begin appearing on cable systems in northern Virginia owned by Cox Communications.  That will eventually be followed by wider distribution on Cox systems nationwide.  The cost is expected to be similar to that of existing outlets, about $14.99 per month, on a subscription basis.  At this time no definitive schedule for the rollout on Cox has been released but it will likely take several months or more.  Thus it is not known how soon viewers on Cox systems can expect it to be available in their area of the United States (fans are encouraged to call their local Cox cable office but understand that they may not know the local rollout date just yet).  Initial areas to get Setanta will be the Cox systems in Fredericksburg and Fairfax, Virginia.  Cox has indicated Fairfax area fans may subscribe as early as today (ch. 298), and Fredericksburg will follow soon.

Up to this time, Setanta has only been available via satellite, Verizon FiOS, and IPTV systems.  AFANA will provide updated information on our TV pages as it becomes available.
