YouTube is now available to Cox Communications' Contour customers, providing access to billions of videos alongside TV programming, on-demand content, DVR recordings and more. Contour customers can use their voice remote to search and watch YouTube videos directly on their TV screens, with no secondary device or need to switch inputs. YouTube is the latest addition to a series of entertainment apps accessible via the Contour platform, including the Netflix and iHeartRadio apps.

Contour is Cox' cloud-based video platform, based on Comcast's (NASDAQ:CMCSA) X1 video operating system. Contour was launched in 2013.

"By integrating YouTube into our Contour platform, we're providing simple access to more live, on-demand and Internet content in one place," said Pat Esser, president of Cox Communications. "More than 60% of Cox customers say they watch YouTube videos weekly, and now it's even easier for them to enjoy watching their favorite YouTube videos on the biggest screens in their homes."

Cox customers can also access their YouTube channel subscriptions, playlists and saved videos through Contour. Multiple YouTube accounts can be synced, and household members can switch back and forth between their YouTube accounts without signing in and out. To access YouTube on Cox Contour, customers simply need a compatible Contour receiver and a Cox High Speed Internet Service.
