Cox adds Prime Video app to Contour TV

Wondering which TV show or movie to watch when you have some time to unwind? Cox Communications just made it even easier to find a new favorite show with its recent launch of Prime Video on Cox Contour TV.

Prime Video joins Netflix, YouTube, NPR One and others in the Contour TV library of apps. Cox Contour video customers can use their voice remote control to easily and quickly access their Prime Video subscription to watch critically-acclaimed shows such as “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” directly on their televisions.

Other popular Amazon Originals on Prime Video include “Hanna,” “Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan,” “Guava Island,” “Homecoming,” and “The Man in the High Castle.”

“There’s no need for a secondary device or input switch,” said Suzanne Schlundt, Vice President of Field Marketing. “Similar to Contour’s other integrated apps including Netflix, YouTube and iHeart Radio, all you have to do is speak into your voice remote control and say things like “Prime Video” or “Mrs. Maisel” and Cox Contour will take you to your Prime Video programming.”

Prime Video can also be accessed in the “Apps” section of the Contour guide.

“Contour has become one of the most innovative platforms in cable,” said Schlundt. “By adding the Prime Video app to Contour, Cox continues to make it incredibly easy for customers to access all the programming they love in one place.”
