US broadband communications and video services provider Altice USA has confirmed that Altice One, its cloud-based connectivity platform, is now available across the full footprint of its Optimum-branded cable TV networks and includes integrated and seamless access to Netflix service.
Altice One a suite of features that the operator says reinvents the connectivity and entertainment experience. Altice One provides a simple all-in-one ultra-high-definition video, high speed broadband, powerful WiFi and IP phone experience in a sleek, compact home hub that replaces the traditional cable box, modem and router. The cloud-based platform includes a personalised user interface and fully integrated access to live TV, video on demand, streaming apps such as Netflix, YouTube and Pandora, and cloud DVR recordings – plus advanced search easily facilitated via Bluetooth-enabled voice-activated remote control.
“We are very pleased with our progress in rolling out Altice One and the positive response from customers,” said Hakim Boubazine, Co-President and Chief Operating Officer, Altice USA. “We are also excited to announce our partnership with Netflix and to provide our customers with seamless access to Netflix content on Altice One. Altice One combines the latest video, internet and connectivity technologies into One immersive experience as we make it simple for our customers to find what they want to watch and access all of their subscriptions in one place. This is just the beginning of the Altice One experience and we look forward to unveiling more content and innovative features for our customers.”
“Now, Altice One customers who subscribe to Netflix can easily access their favourite Netflix shows and movies directly on Altice One, without juggling different cords and remotes,” said Paul Perryman, vice president of business development, Netflix. “And, with the upcoming Altice One remote control featuring a Netflix direct access button, they’ll be able to quickly access Netflix and enjoy their favourite content.”
Current customers of Altice One and Netflix will be prompted to sign in when accessing the Netflix service on the platform for the first time. Altice One customers without a Netflix membership will be able to sign up for Netflix service directly through Altice One and begin to immediately explore and enjoy the content.
Altice USA, through its Optimum-branded products and services, was one of the first providers to embrace OTT services, offering customers HBO Now, Showtime’s OTT service, CBS All-Access, and Hulu.
