Cablevision Optimum App Gets Voice Search

Cablevision subscribers can search and navigate programming with voice commands, following a recent upgrade to its Optimum App on smartphones, tablets and laptops.

The MSO began promoting the voice search feature in this YouTube tutorial video on Monday. It includes a plug for the New York Knicks, the NBA team owned by Cablevision CEO Jim Dolan.

Several other pay TV distributors offer subscribers the ability to navigate with voice commands, including Comcast and AT&T U-verse TV.
