SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- 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(R) 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."
