Netflix available on Cox Contour nationwide

Tuesday 14 November 2017 | 15:02 CET | News
Cox Communications and Netflix announced the integration of Netflix on Cox's premier video product Cox Contour nationwide. Cox Contour video customers may now access Netflix movies and shows by speaking into the remote. Cox customers with a Netflix subscription can access Netflix content, along with Cox's live TV, DVR and On Demand content all within the Contour TV guide. While Netflix is now fully integrated with Contour, Cox customers will need a subscription to Netflix to enjoy content from both sources.

Full integration throughout the Contour platform means finding and watching current and past episodes of favourite shows and movies is easier than ever. Using the Contour remote, Netflix content can be accessed by searching for specific TV shows or movies via the Contour voice remote, going to the Contour Apps category and choosing the Netflix icon or simply saying "Netflix" into the voice remote – opens the Netflix app on the TV screen, as well as discovering selected Netflix titles within the Cox On Demand menus.

Contour's latest version leverages the X1 platform from Comcast and now includes Netflix's content library.  One of the most popular Contour features is the voice remote, which allows customers to change channels, find shows, get recommendations and launch apps by simply using voice commands.  The TV apps offer personalised news, weather and traffic, including a sports app which shows stats and scores on the TV screen without interrupting the game.  The cloud-based Contour interface is available in-home and on a mobile app which allows viewing on mobile devices both in and outside the home.

Contour users can view purchased movies and shows on TV, stream on computer at watchtv.cox.com or download content to the Contour mobile app to watch anywhere, anytime, even without an Internet connection.
