How to watch live content on Cable TV

Depending on your plan, cable TV is one of the most convenient ways to access multiple TV channels at once. With cable TV, you don’t have to wait until the following day to check out a season premiere. Watch it the minute it goes live, before anyone gets the opportunity to spoil the plot twist for you.

Cox Contour subscribers can access premium channels, live content and more by simply tuning in to specific listings or accessing via voice remote. Consult your local channel listings and package for specific content by channel.

How to watch live content with streaming services

While cable TV is convenient and provides access to multiple shows, there are many TV shows only available on streaming services, such as Amazon Prime, HBO Max and Netflix. Streaming isn’t just for those opting out of owning a television – cable subscribers can also access some cable content via the services. Most of these apps are available across a range of devices including smart TVs, smartphones, tablets, personal computers and devices like the Cox Contour Stream Player.
