Mediacom said the Xumo Stream Box is now available to its customers. Xumo is a joint venture between cable giants Comcast and Charter formed with the purpose of developing new streaming capabilities.

Xumo Stream Box is designed to integrate a wide range of streaming apps, enabling a single search for multiple streaming services and other capabilities. Mediacom is the first company other than Charter and Comcast to offer the product.

The Xumo name comes from a streaming video platform developer that Comcast acquired several years ago.

The Xumo Stream Box enables Mediacom’s Xtream Internet customers to:

  • Search for a show or movie by saying its name into the included voice remote
  • Take advantage of AI-driven personalization and a team of editors to “surface content recommendations within the experience, helping customers find something to watch without having to jump in and out of apps.”
  • Use built-in channel guide for content browsing
  • Use any of the hundreds of preloaded streaming apps
  • Build personalized viewing lists for every member of the family. Users can easily add any show or movie available on Xumo Stream Box to a specific list, enabling them to easily determine what to watch next.

Just under two years ago, Comcast and Charter announced they would work together to develop a next generation streaming platform to be delivered through a variety of branded streaming devices and smart TVs. The foundation of these platforms was Comcast Flex and XClass TV platforms.

“Xumo Stream Box is an incredibly versatile and consumer-friendly technology that seamlessly integrates our market leading broadband speeds with a world class streaming experience,” Tapan Dandnaik, Mediacom’s senior vice president of operations, product strategy and consumer experience, said in a prepared statement about the Xumo Stream Box. “We are thrilled to be among the first companies to bring this cutting-edge device to market.”
