How to Easily Access all of this Good Stuff
To access iHeartRadio on Contour, customers simply need a compatible Contour receiver and any Cox High Speed Internet Service.
To get started, simply say "iHeartRadio," into the voice remote, or navigate to iHeartRadio through the apps menu (it can be found in the "Entertainment" section). Additionally, customers can access iHeartRadio stations in the Contour Music menu.
Customers don't need to create an iHeartRadio account to listen to and search for music. However, there are benefits associated with creating an account, including the ability to quickly access their personalized iHeartRadio listening experience and saved favorites.
There are no additional charges associated with accessing iHeartRadio through Contour although, because iHeartRadio is delivered via Cox High Speed Internet service, it is subject to the rules, terms and conditions that govern internet usage including any data usage plans that may apply.
Netflix can be easily accessed with the Contour remote by saying "Netflix" into it, or simply by speaking the name of your favorite Netflix shows like "Stranger Things" or "Narcos". Click here to for an easy how-to video.
While Netflix is now fully integrated with Contour, Cox customers will need a subscription to Netflix to enjoy content from both sources.
Contour users can access movies and shows on TV, stream on a computer at watchtv.cox.com or stream content through smart phones or tablets via the Contour mobile app to watch anywhere, anytime.
