This month, whether you’re enjoying time off for spring break, staying focused on that New Year’s resolution you made in January, or preparing for spring cleaning, don’t overlook the technology in your home.
From personalized apps and free on demand through Contour, or free nationwide hotspots available to Cox High Speed Internet customers, give yourself and your family the gift of health, time, security and savings.
1. Personalized Weather, News and Traffic Apps
Before heading out for that commute to work or vacaction, check traffic, local weather, and more with the click of a button on the Contour remote control.
Apps are launched on the TV screen without interrupting your current show.
2. On Demand Entertainment.
Access more than 70,000 movies, TV shows and children’s programming instantly on Contour, as well as a free on demand category. Plus, take advantage of on-screen Rotten Tomatoes and Flixster ratings to help you decide what to watch. Simply say “On Demand” into your new Contour remote and your options will pop up on screen. And if your New Year’s resolution is to get fit in 2018, try the yoga, Pilates and other exercise videos in the free on demand library.
3. Netflix Integration
Now you can access your Netflix account from your Contour TV service without the fuss of switching inputs or signing in to your account. Contour now includes a Netflix app, so just say “Netflix” into your Contour remote and you’ll be able to access the available movie and show titles. If you’re already a Netflix subscriber, get started now—there are no additional charges.
No need to download songs or search through playlists. Choose from 100 Music Choice stations on Contour for the perfect soundtrack to your day.
