Apple TV Single Sign On

Are you guys going to allow single sign on on Apple TV so that I could eventually watch live tv stuff easily?

    Are you referring to our Contour app or a specific network's?

    Stephanie, is the Contour (2) app now available for Apple TV? I was only aware of it being available on iOS9+, Android, Mac or Windows. I can't even airPlay to my ATV without getting a rights violation error.

  • Hi AllenP,

    You are correct. The Contour 2 app is not yet available for Apple TV. See the list of supported devices and compatible operating systems for the Contour 2 app at We hope to expand the list of supported devices as we move forward in 2017.

    I'd also like to know if and when Cox will support this.

    If Cox supports this feature, customers with iOS devices (iPhone, iPad) and/or fourth-generation Apple TVs will be able to use channel-specific "TV Everywhere" apps without having to go through the whole "authenticate your TV provider" song-and-dance for each and every channel's app. They'll log into their Cox account once, and that will authorize ALL the TV Everywhere apps that support single sign-on.

    Currently, Cox's competitors DirecTV, Dish, and Sling support this feature.

    Thank you for the link. I've forwarded it to our Application Team to review. Any new products and services are kept confidential until a date to launch has been set. If there are any updates, we will print them in your statement.

    I am also disappointed to find Cox Cable is not listed as an option for single sing-in on the new Apple TV. Please add your company to the list of those providing this very useful option.

    Cox is a very slow moving provider. They don't adapt quickly to moving technologies, which is why I'm going to Direct TV for entertainment. Forget Cox. I've been a member for over 20 years. Right now it's only for internet.

    Cox truly is a slow moving provider. Compared to ATT uVerse, Cox looks truly archaic. 

    And not even a single sign-on as of yet for Apple TV.
