Adelphia Communications Corp. will tap SeaChange International Inc.'s
video-on-demand servers and software to power a new sports-on-demand
service.

An extension of its existing 'MediaCluster' VOD platform, SeaChange's
network-based personal video recording is designed to allow operators to
customize tiers of free, ad-supported on-demand programming.

Adelphia is deploying SeaChange's PVR system following a test earlier this
month that featured on-demand access to Buffalo Sabres National Hockey League
games.

SeaChange's PVR application records live events onto the existing VOD system
and delivers them on-demand to digital-cable subscribers. Users of the system
can exit a recorded program stream to rejoin its live broadcast, SeaChange
said.
