ATLANTA, May 13, 2019 - Today, Cox Communications announced that Contour customers now have access to Amazon Prime Video, making it easier than ever to enjoy their favorite TV shows and movies in one place. By simply saying "Amazon Prime Video" or "Prime Video" into their Contour voice remote, customers can watch award-winning and critically-acclaimed Amazon Originals like The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Hanna, Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan, Guava Island, Homecoming, and The Man in the High Castle.
"When it's time to enjoy your favorite streaming content, just say the word and we'll serve it up on your screen. It has never been easier to find and enjoy favorite TV shows, movies and video clips all-in-one place," said Kevin Hart, executive vice president and chief product and technology officer for Cox. "We've removed the complexity that comes with toggling, switching inputs or the necessity of watching on a smaller screen. Now all you have to do is say the name of your favorite Prime Video show or movie into your Contour remote and it will appear on your TV."
"Prime Video is committed to making our customers' favorite shows, movies and live sports effortless to watch," said Andrew Bennett, head of worldwide business development for Prime Video. "Bringing the Prime Video app to Contour gives our Prime members even more ways to stream Amazon Originals including the upcoming launches of Good Omens and Chasing Happiness, the Jonas Brothers' documentary."
Voice commands are easy and intuitive with the Contour voice remote. To access Prime Video, Contour customers can simply say the following phrases to their voice remote:
- "Amazon Prime Video" or "Prime Video" to launch the app
- "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel," or the name of any Prime Video show or movie, to pull up the series page, even if the Prime Video app is not open
Prime Video is the latest in a series of successful integrations that connect Contour customers with the content they care about most. In addition to live TV, recorded DVR content and thousands of titles available On Demand, Contour customers can use the voice remote to pull from the vast library of content available on Prime Video, Netflix and YouTube. Truly the go-to hub for all entertainment needs, Contour is also seamlessly integrated with iHeartRadio. Contour customers can use their voice remote to access extensive music libraries, search for their favorite radio stations and artists over a range of genres, including pop, country, hip-hop, R&B, alternative and rock.
"Our goal is to make life easier and connect our customers with the content that they care about," said Hart. "Whatever they're looking for, all they have to do is ask their Contour voice remote."
