Altice today announced that it’s expanding its new Altice One set-top box across the full Optimum footprint. The new set-top box features seamless access to the Netflix service. It’s the latest cable operator in the country to team up with Netflix, we’ve previously seen Comcast integrated Netflix with its Xfinity X1 set-top box. Comcast happens to be the biggest cable provider in the United States.
Altice first announced its Altice One set-top box last year. The set-top box was first made available to new customers on Long Island. The company has announced today that the Altice One is now available across its entire Optimum service footprint.
The set-top box provides users with an all-in-one UHD video, high-speed broadband as well as a Wi-Fi and IP phone experience in a single compact home hub. It replaces the traditional cable box, modem, and router. The cloud-based platform has a personalized user interface with fully integrated access to live TV, video on demand, and streaming apps such as Netflix. It also supports other apps like Pandora and YouTube.
