Broadband communications and video services provider Altice USA has unveiled Altice One, a new connectivity platform that it says reinvents the way consumers connect to the entertainment and content they want.
According to Altice, Altice One provides a better, personalised and simple all-in-one video, broadband, WiFi and phone experience with new and enhanced features such as access to apps, voice search and more in a sleek, compact home hub that replaces the traditional cable box, modem and router.
As a cloud-based service, the Altice One platform gives Altice the flexibility to innovate and enhance offerings continuously, quickly and simply for customers.
Altice One includes a new contemporary user interface and fully integrated access to live TV, video on demand, apps such as YouTube and Pandora, cloud DVR recordings and powerful WiFi connectivity – plus advanced search easily facilitated via a new voice-activated remote control, with much more to come.
The company says that by providing seamless navigation across traditional video and OTT (over-the-top) services, Altice One will make it easy for customers to find what they want to watch and access their subscriptions in one place – in the home and on the go.
“We live in a world where content and technology are converging at a fast pace, and Altice One provides the experience, entertainment and connectivity that consumers are looking for today,” commented Dexter Goei, Altice USA Chairman and CEO.
“Altice One is just the beginning of a new, better and simple experience for Altice’s Optimum and Suddenlink customers as we look to become the connected home provider of choice now and into the future. Less than two years after acquiring Cablevision and Suddenlink, we’re thrilled to bring this new service to market for our customers and reinforce our ongoing commitment to continuous innovation in the US.”
Altice One, which has been in customer trials, will be available in select areas of Long Island first, beginning week commencing November 6th, and will roll out across the Altice USA footprint in the coming months.
