Modern-day life has become so taxing due to the myriad of novel challenges that come our way, ranging from a “bad internet day” to a global pandemic, that it is vital we take the time to pause, and allow ourselves some entertainment to break the stress cycle.

Fortunately, the digital world we live in allows us to consume our favorite TV entertainment with real ease. As our reliance on online video-streaming platforms continues to increase, it is becoming easier to tap into our favorite shows on smartphones anywhere, anytime, and find something to suit the mood which makes the “break” worthwhile.  

The good thing is on demand and live streaming platforms like Netflix, Prime Video, Hulu Live and YouTube TV are not yet the only way to access TV entertainment with convenience and flexibility. While the recent years have seen streaming service subscriptions soar to a new high, during this time the experience of watching the good ole’ Cable has also been revolutionized by TV service providers like Cox Communications.

Cox Contour Redefines Cable TV

As a new Cox Contour TV subscriber you are therefore in for quite a refreshing experience. While the Contour Channel Lineup is a big part of your subscription, it is not all. As you spend time with Contour TV you’ll get to discover so much more.

  • The smart program guide which helps you search and filter shows, and learns about your preferences so you can get recommendations on what to watch.
  • The Contour Voice Remote which does your bid each time you give it a verbal command to fetch a show or movie, and more!
  • The convenience of an integrated platform which allows you to browse live TV, On Demand, DVR recordings and streaming apps all in one place.
  • The Starter DVR, which currently comes included with your Contour subscription, and gives you a way to never miss the next episode of your favorite show
  • The Contour app which lets you take TV on-the-go and watch anywhere, anytime
  • Apps like Pluto TV, Tubi and Xumo, which you can access via the Contour TV box, and pick from thousands of free movies and shows 

Briefly put, you’ll enjoy a good dose of innovative technology gelled into the Contour TV service, lending you loads of freedom and ease, otherwise associated with streaming services alone.  

Watching TLC on Cox Contour

Available to an estimated 95 million pay-tv households in the U.S., TLC is no longer devoted to niche audience, or broadcasting educational and learning content true to its original brand name “The Learning Channel”. Rather since 2014 the American pay-tv channel has come to increasingly focus upon personal stories and family life. TLC is one of the networks we have seen adapt to the evolving TV market, consistently shifting focus towards what the audience wanted to watch. “A Place for Learning Minds”, “Live and Learn”, “Life Surprises, and “Everyone Needs a Little TLC”. All these slogans carried by the network over the years depict its audience-centric approach to content creation.

Watching your favorite Reality TV with TLC on Cox can be real exciting. Whether it is your feel-good-favorites, the first-run of TLC Originals or the re-runs, you can relish it all in a completely new way. Go ahead and schedule a DVR recording of the next “Say Yes to the Dress” episode if you are not planning to be home when it airs. Tune into Darcey & Stacey via the Contour app if you are not in the mood to sit in front of the big screen. Sign in with your Cox credentials to start streaming 90 Day Diaries with Watch TLC on your PC or via the Contour app on your smartphone.
