The welcome page includes customized local news, sports and weather.

The news section contains national and international news feeds.

The finance section boasts streaming video, stock prices and
initial-public-offering updates.

The entertainment area includes music, video clips, movie trailers and local
movie schedules.

Fox Sports is supplying sports news, game highlights and fantasy
football.

Lycos is supplying hundreds of games from its "Lycos Gamesville," as well as
content for the kids and family section.

The site is free to all RCN broadband Internet subscribers. Subscribers also
have access to Listen.com's Rhapsody paid music site (http://www.listen.com/), including
a free 30-day trial, and a 15-day trial to "Net Nanny" parental-control
