Altice USA today announced several updates to its Altice One operating system including the ability to watch cloud DVR content on the Altice One mobile app.
OS 2.0 also adds access to the YouTube Kids app, the ability to use voice search on YouTube to discover videos, more 4K content and live show restart on more than 20 additional networks.
Altice also added a new News 12 app to the platform for Optimum customers. The company is also promising improved navigation with “enhanced legibility” for Suddenlink customers. Altice One already offers Netflix, YouTube and 12 other streaming apps.
Altice One is available to Altice USA’s Optimum and Suddenlink customers.
“Altice One has transformed the way our customers connect to the content they love by simplifying their entertainment experience and providing expansive WiFi coverage to power their homes,” said Hakim Boubazine, co-president and chief operating officer at Altice USA, in a statement. “OS 2.0 gives Altice One families new features to enjoy such as enhanced mobility with on-the-go Cloud DVR, more streaming apps, enhanced voice search, and more 4K content, and is just the latest update as we continue to evolve the Altice One experience for our customers.”
Altice One OS 2.0 comes approximately one year after Altice USA launched its Altice One platform in the U.S. Altice One offers features like video on demand, broadband, Wi-Fi and home phone service in a device that combines the functions of a traditional cable box, modem and router.
Altice One is not unlike what Comcast has done with its own X1 platform, which offers a revamped user interface and integrates streaming services.
