ENGLEWOOD, Colo.—The cable TV and data provider WideOpenWest Inc. announced the launch of its new video service, WOW! tv+, for high-speed data customers in Cleveland and mid-Michigan communities.
The Android TV-based platform features popular live channel packages, cloud DVR, and access to a deep On Demand library. It also includes a voice remote with Google Assistant, Netflix integration, and easy access to streaming apps through the Google Play Store without the need to change inputs.
The company’s move to an IP-delivered video offering allows WOW! to better use its broadband network, enable fast and easy contactless installs, and support Internet of Things devices that more consumers are now bringing into their homes.
In Michigan, the services are now available in WOW-served communities in the greater Lansing and Grand Rapids areas, along with metro Detroit’s western suburbs. More at https://www.wowway.com/internet/michigan/mid-michigan.
“Consumers want choices,” WOW CEO Teresa Elder said. “They want to determine when, where and how they consume information and entertainment. We’re seeing seismic shifts in the industry and WOW! tv+ is one more way our customers can seek news and entertainment on their terms. As efficient use of our broadband network becomes more important, moving to an IP-based video service makes perfect sense and provides our customers with an enhanced viewing experience.”
