For no extra charge, Cox’s video customers can watch movies and TV shows from broadcast, cable and premium networks on their computers. The content includes:
•Broadcast TV shows
•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. (To access Epix or Vutopia movies, you must be a Cox Advanced TV Essential subscriber with Movie Pak or separate Epix or Vutopia subscription. For Turner content, you must be a subscriber to Cox Advanced TV Essential. For HBO, you must subscribe to both Cox Advanced TV Essential and HBO. All HBO content is accessed through the HBOgo website. You can find a link to the HBOgo.com website from the Cox TV Online webpage.)
•News and entertainment clips
Customers only need a computer with a flash supported browser, a broadband connection within the U.S. and their Cox user ID and password, which requires a registration on Cox.com.
Many television shows will be available for online viewing the day after they premier. Cox says 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 is an expansion of Cox’s current online entertainment options. Last summer, the company introduced the ability for Cox Advanced TV customers who 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.
