Leading US cable network Altice has launched a new connectivity platform that it says will reinvent the way consumers connect to entertainment content.

The new Altice One is designed to provide a better, personalised and simple all-in-one video, broadband, Wi-Fi and phone experience. It has new and enhanced features such as access to apps, voice search and other functionality accessed from a compact home hub that replaces the traditional cable box, modem and router. As a cloud-based service, the Altice One platform is said to provide customers with offerings that can be continuously enhanced quickly and simply. The package also includes a new contemporary user interface and fully integrated access to live TV, video-on-demand, apps such as YouTube and Pandora and cloud DVR recordings.

By providing such navigation across traditional video and OTT (over-the-top) services, the operator claims that Altice One will make it easy for customers to find what they want to watch and access their subscriptions in one place – in the home and on the go. “We live in a world where content and technology are converging at a fast pace, and Altice One provides the experience, entertainment and connectivity that consumers are looking for today,” said Altice USA  chairman and CEO Dexter Goei.

“Altice One is just the beginning of a new, better and simple experience for Altice’s Optimum and Suddenlink customers as we look to become the connected home provider of choice now and into the future. Less than two years after acquiring Cablevision and Suddenlink, we’re thrilled to bring this new service to market for our customers and reinforce our ongoing commitment to continuous innovation in the US.”
