PCN Offers Subscription Service

This sounds cool.

The Pennsylvania Cable Network (PCN) will be bringing a new way to view its original programming on the web. Starting Thursday, July 5, the statewide public affairs network will offer a new subscription service called, PCN Select, which will allow users the chance to view PCN’s popular original programs anytime and anywhere.

PCN will stay true to its mission by continuing to provide free access to all public affairs programming on its PCN+ streaming page; while only programs produced by the network will be offered as part of the PCN Select subscription service. The only exception is an exclusive offer for “Weather World” fans. To learn more, view the promotional spot http://youtu.be/at7Uw43PSVk.

Those interested in paying $24.99 for PCN Select can get an all-access pass for one year to PCN originals including “PCN Tours,” “PA Books,” “Journalists Roundtable,” “On the Issues,” the “PCN Call-In program,” “It’s History!” and the network’s exclusive sports coverage.  “Gettysburg Battlewalks” as well as extensive coverage of the PA State Farm Show and Groundhog Day will also be part of this streaming opportunity.

Exclusive for those fans of “Weather World” who never want to miss a forecast will be a streaming option for a year’s subscription of $9.99. 

Viewers can also opt to view PCN’s stream with a $7.99 option. This will allow full-access to the PCN stream for a 24-hour period.

To sign up for PCN Select, visit the PCN website at pcntv.com. All payments will be accepted through PayPal.

Almost every cable operator throughout the state carries PCN; making all of PCN’s programming available to those who subscribe to cable. PCN Select gives streaming access to the programs produced by PCN for those with or without cable. Free streaming of all public affairs programming will remain on the network’s LIVE streaming page, PCN +.

In the near future, the network will be offering a mobile app for smartphones and tablets. Full access to archived network original content is also scheduled in the future.
