Cogeco Connexion launches new ‘EPICO’ IPTV service

Cogeco Connexion has launched new IPTV service, EPICO, a platform integrated into Google’s Android TV ecosystem that allows viewers to watch both TV and streaming content via a single interface.

Test-driven on Cogeco employees before hitting the market, EPICO encompasses live and on-demand channels, in addition to Netflix, YouTube, Disney+ and other apps via the Google Play Store.

The interface includes the ability to use voice commands to restart a program or access a recent broadcast. The EPICO 4K wireless cloud PVR also offers capacity to record up to 1,000 hours of content that can be downloaded and viewed later without an internet connection on the EPICO mobile app.

“We are excited to provide our customers with the latest technology in home entertainment, while using a progressive marketing approach for its introduction in the market. More than 1,200 employees were our first users before offering EPICO to our customers,” said Frédéric Perron, President of Cogeco Connexion, in a release. “We are very proud of our employees’ engagement and now, more than 12,000 customers are enjoying the benefits of EPICO.”

The company says EPICO is currently available to the majority of Cogeco customers.
