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.
