TV Goes Online with Cox Communications

Cox Communications announced Tuesday the launch of TV Online. Now customers have the choice to view their favorite shows: on TV, On DEMAND and now Online via the cox.com/tv site anywhere they have access to a broadband connection.

With the launch of TV Online, Cox TV customers can view movies and TV shows from broadcast, cable and premium networks anytime, anywhere. This new viewing option is included at no extra charge with a Cox TV subscription.

Content includes:

  • Popular broadcast TV shows
  • Hit shows from cable networks like TBS, TNT, Cartoon Network, and TruTV
  • Thousands of movies — hit Hollywood titles, independent films and kids’ favorites from networks like HBO, Cinemax, Epix and Vutopia
  • News and entertainment clips

No special equipment is required; customers simply need a computer with a flash supported browser, a broadband connection within the United States and their Cox user ID and password.

“TV Online is yet another example of how we are making our customers’ entertainment and communications flexible and customizable,” said David Pugliese, senior vice president of product marketing for Cox Communications.

Many of the television shows will be available for online viewing starting the day after the premiere. Viewers can catch up on shows they missed or watch something new.

The TV Online site is designed so that customers can find content quickly and easily by browsing through the thumbnail graphics or filter for TV shows or movies. They can further narrow their search by genre, network or show name — even by movie rating such as G or PG titles.

Cox TV Online marks an expansion of Cox’s current online entertainment options. Last summer, the company introduced the ability for Cox Advanced TV customers that subscribe to the Movie Pak to watch movies from Epix and Vutopia online.

In December of last year, Cox began offering online access to select cable networks. Additionally, all Cox High Speed Internet customers have free access to ESPN3.com, where they can watch up to 3,500 games a year of college football and basketball, major professional leagues and international tennis and soccer online.

Cox Communications is a broadband communications and entertainment company, providing digital video, Internet, telephone and wireless services over its own nationwide IP network.
