Cox Communications announced Monday that its Cox TV Connect app is allowing many customers to use their iPad as an additional screen to watch live, streaming video in their home. The app includes access to national cable television channels that offer a variety of news and entertainment programming.
 
TV Connect includes an on-screen guide, and customers can select a full-screen viewing option once a program has been selected. The first version of the TV Connect app is now available at no charge in the Apple App Store. At initial launch, Cox customers with Preferred, Premier or Ultimate Cox High Speed Internet service, Cox TV Essential service or higher and a DOCSIS modem can download and use the free application on their iPad. 
 
In Louisiana, digital channels currently available on the app (the number will grow) include:

Last May Cox introduced TV Online at www.cox.com/tv, which gives Cox Advanced TV customers access to thousands of television and movies titles on demand — many available for online viewing the day after they air. Earlier this year, Cox also introduced Mobile Connect, an iPad, iPhone and Android app that gives Cox Advanced TV and Cox Telephone customers the ability to control and manage their Cox DVR and Telephone services.
