Contour Stream Player FAQs

Have questions about the Contour Stream Player or the Contour app? Here are some answers:

How do I use voice control on the Contour Voice Remote?

Press and hold the Microphone button, then speak a command into the microphone located at the top of your Voice Remote. Be sure to speak one to eight inches away from the microphone. Release the button when you’ve finished the command. Learn more about the Contour Voice Remote.

The microphone is only on while you’re pressing and holding the Mic button on your Voice Remote. You’ll see a flashing light on your Voice Remote and a microphone symbol on the TV connected to your Contour Stream Player which will let you know that the microphone is on and listening for voice commands.

You can use voice control to access your subscription services, search for shows, get recommendations and more. Because the Voice Remote understands natural speech, you can search by keywords or phrases.

After you speak into the Voice Remote, the voice commands are sent to us and our contracted service provider for processing. We provide these commands to the voice control service to improve our products, services and voice recognition algorithms.

If your commands aren’t recognized, make sure you’re speaking clearly and at a natural, conversational volume. Hold the remote one to eight inches away while giving a command and hold down the Mic button until you finish speaking. If you’re still having trouble, check for other sources of noise near you that may be interfering with your voice commands.

Also, try checking your battery level by visiting the About section of the Contour Stream Settings menu. If your battery level is red or yellow, try changing your batteries.

Yes, just open the app and swipe left to right to open the main navigation menu, then select the On Demand menu to watch purchased content or your active network subscriptions. To view recently viewed/rented Cox On Demand programs, tap the icon in the top left-hand corner and select For You to see rented content.

On Demand services aren’t available in all areas. If you live in an area that doesn’t offer On Demand through your Contour Stream Player, you won’t have access through the Contour app. Also, keep in mind that not all content can be streamed outside your home.
