Altice USA's (NYSE:ATUS) Altice One connectivity platform is now available across the full Optimum footprint and includes integrated access to Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) service.

Altice One is a centralized platform that provides an all-in-one UltraHD video, broadband, WiFi and IP phone service in a compact home hub that replaces the traditional cable box, modem and router. The cloud-based platform includes a personalized user interface (UI) and integrated access to live TV, video on demand (VOD), streaming apps (such as Netflix, YouTube and Pandora), and cloud DVR recordings, plus search facilitated via Bluetooth-enabled voice-activated remote control.

"We are very pleased with our progress in rolling out Altice One and the positive response from customers," said Hakim Boubazine, co-president and chief operating officer, Altice USA. "We are also excited to announce our partnership with Netflix and to provide our customers with seamless access to Netflix content on Altice One. Altice One combines the latest video, Internet and connectivity technologies into one immersive experience as we make it simple for our customers to find what they want to watch and access all of their subscriptions in one place. This is just the beginning of the Altice One experience, and we look forward to unveiling more content and innovative features for our customers."

"Now, Altice One customers who subscribe to Netflix can easily access their favorite Netflix shows and movies directly on Altice One, without juggling different cords and remotes," said Paul Perryman, vice president of business development, Netflix. "And with the upcoming Altice One remote control featuring a Netflix direct access button, they'll be able to quickly access Netflix and enjoy their favorite content."

Current customers of Altice One and Netflix will be prompted to sign in when accessing the Netflix service on the platform for the first time. Altice One customers without a Netflix membership will be able to sign up for Netflix service directly through Altice One.

Altice USA, through its Optimum-branded products and services, also offers HBO Now, Showtime's OTT service, CBS All-Access, and Hulu.
