Cox Contour

Live TV functionality still limited to your home network

Making the move after being available on iOS first, Cox Cable's Contour app is now available for subscribers on Android. Designed specifically for tablets, Contour is very similar to offerings from other cable providers that let you manage your cable box and watch TV (albeit with restrictions) on your mobile device. At this point, Cox lists the Nexus 7, Nexus 10, Galaxy Tab 2 and Galaxy Tab 3 as supported in this release.

With Contour, you can manage your DVR, watch on-demand video content and switch between watching shows on your tablet and your TV seamlessly. While over 100 live TV channels are available through the app, a bit of tricky wording says that you can watch "anywhere in your house," indicating that the TV offerings aren't available outside of your home network.

Regardless of the restrictions, its nice to see another cable operator provide a useful second screen experience for Android tablet users out there.

You got to admit it was a pretty good troll. Right?. Although I agree the conversation is over. I mean it was a whole 2 posts ago.

Meh, it's a little forced and could have been more subtle. 3/10

True. I give it 4/10. Forced it was. But who would ever go to the trouble of pirating the Cox contour app?
