Cox Communications has added access to Amazon Prime Video to its cloud-based Contour video platform, which includes a voice remote. Prime Video is the latest in a series of Contour integrations. 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 content available on Prime Video, Netflix and YouTube. Contour is also integrated with iHeartRadio.

"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."

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 name of any Prime Video show or movie, to pull up the series page, even if the Prime Video app is not open

"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."
