YouTube Is Now Only One Voice Search Away With Cox Contour

Cox makes it easy to access everything in one place, adding YouTube alongside Netflix, iHeartRadio, On Demand and live TV programming.

Cox Communications announced that YouTube is now available for Contour customers, providing seamless access to billions of videos right alongside TV programming, On Demand content, DVR recordings and more. Cox 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.


YouTube app customers can use the voice remote or press the Contour button and then select the 'apps' menu. When using the voice remote, users simply need to say the word "YouTube" at the beginning or end of their voice command. Examples include:

  • "YouTube, show me make-up tutorials"
  • "Find party dip recipes on YouTube"
  • "YouTube, show me clips from the 2018 'Oscars'"
  • "Watch 'Carpool Karaoke' on YouTube"

"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 percent 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 easily switch back and forth between their YouTube accounts without signing in and out.

We're committed to making our products and services accessible to all customers. For more information, visit cox.com/accessibility. To access YouTube on Cox Contour, customers simply need a compatible Contour receiver and a Cox High Speed Internet Service.
