Simplify your TV time (because pandemic life is complicated enough)

A good cable TV package and strong internet connection for streaming your favorite movies and shows are must-haves for every family, even after the pandemic is over. It can get complicated toggling between streaming apps and multiple remotes, adding frustration to what should be a simple, relaxing time. 

Cox Contour TV lets you watch what you want, your way – no fuss. 

Everything in One Place, With One Remote 

There’s so much great programming out there to watch, Contour TV makes switching between Netflix, YouTube, and Prime Video as easy as changing the channel using one remote control. Cox Contour allows users to automatically access every title on their Netflix, YouTube, and Prime accounts, as well as Cox On Demand, all in one place. 

You can do it all with one remote, too – the Contour voice remote is all you need. Use voice commands to easily search across your streaming apps, live TV, or Cox On Demand for what you want to watch. Search by title, actor, genre, or even a movie quote.

Cox is all about accessibility and making it easier for customers to connect with the people and things that matter most. To help those who have lost their fine motor skills, Cox has launched a new feature on Contour TV that lets customers with physical disabilities browse their cable guide using their eyes. Accessible Web Remote for Contour gives people living with conditions like paraplegia, Parkinson’s disease, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) the same access to their TV programming as customers with the latest edition of Contour, and works in tandem with a customer’s equipment such as a sip and puff system. 

Cox Contour customers can visit to sync their device and begin changing channels, set a recording, search for programming within the Contour guide, and access integrated streaming apps, all with a glance of their eyes.
