Contour 2: Voice Remote

We’ve completely redesigned the Contour remote control with a smaller, easier to handle frame and buttons that help you find exactly what you’re looking for. Plus, easily find shows, movies, and other content by speaking into your remote.

Cox TV

Enjoy features like:

  • A microphone button for voice control
  • A backlit keypad that lights up when you pick up the remote
  • Aim anywhere technology to control your TV without pointing it at the receiver
  • Easy pairing
  • A "Last" button to view the 9 most recently watched programs
  • TV Input control
  • Shortcut buttons to easily launch the Help menu, Accessibility settings and the Sports App

Say it to See it: Using Voice Commands

The Contour Voice Remote lets you navigate and control your TV more easily than ever. Simply press and hold the blue microphone button and say a command in the form of a word or phrase. Here are some popular examples of what you can say:

  • "Watch ABC"
  • "Frozen"
  • "Movies with Anne Hathaway"
  • "Hasta la vista baby"
  • "What should I watch?"
  • "Five minute workouts on YouTube"
  • "Sports App"
  • "What football games are on?"
  • "Turn on Closed Captioning"

Introducing smart home controls

Now you can control your Homelife devices easily. Use your Contour Voice Remote to control thermostats, lights, and smart plugs. Here are a few suggestions:

  • Dim the living room light to 40 percent
  • Turn the master bedroom lights off
  • Make it brighter
  • Are my entry lights on?
  • What is the temperature inside?
  • Turn on the heat
  • Set the upstairs thermostat to 73 degrees

If your command doesn’t immediately work, try saying “Cox Homelife” first. Make sure to give your Homelife devices unique names with no numbers so it’s easy for the voice remote to know which equipment you want to control. You can rename your equipment in the Homelife portal or the Cox Homelife app.
