C Spire is getting ready to return this spring when it launches C Spire TV, a new live TV streaming service.
C Spire TV will have a convenient and simple app designed available on devices from Amazon, Apple, and Roku as well as Android and Apple tablets and smartphones.
“It’s about time TV evolved from cable’s ball and chain mentality rooted in a bygone era,” said Ashley Phillips, general manager of C Spire Home.
The new service is integrated with the Amazon Echo voice assistant and a custom C Spire TV Alexa skill so customers can search, discover and even change channels using their voice. “For us, new technology is only as good as its potential to improve the lives of customers. We live in a golden-age of TV content, and thanks to C Spire TV, customers will finally have a platform to do it justice,” Phillips said.
C Spire TV will allow you to catch up on any missed episode for most channels. The C Spire cloud, most shows, including local broadcasts that aired over the past three days, can be viewed with the Replay TV feature.
Not only is there a 3 day replay feature C Spire TV will also have a cloud DVR service. “Customers will have an easier time than ever before keeping up with the shows they love” said Phillips.
C Spire TV will use machine-learning to understand a customer’s habits and keep their favorite content front-and-center. “Our platform learns your preferences and recommends new shows and movies ideally suited to your tastes and interests,” Phillips added.
Customers can choose to browse content via a traditional guide-view or in an increasingly popular tile-view that organizes content according to popular genres. Phillips said the entire user interface has been painstakingly designed around user-feedback, ensuring C Spire TV will be one of the most intuitive, easy-to-use platforms at launch.
Right now C Spire TV is in the final stages of beta testing and will launch later this spring. Sadly the service will only be available for customers of C Spire Fiber’s gigabit internet product.
