In addition to linear and on-demand video services delivered to a set-top box in the home, Cablevisión Flow customers can access content via mobile phones, tablets and personal computers. Subscribers can start watching a show on one device, and seamlessly continue watching it on a different device. Minerva 10’s embedded recommendation engine facilitates content discovery by presenting content based on the user’s viewing history as well as showing trending titles popular with other subscribers. Popular features include:

  • Restart TV: jump back to the beginning of a live TV show while it is being aired
  • Catchup TV: watch shows up to 1-3 days after scheduled time
  • Cloud PVR: schedule your favorite shows to be recorded in the cloud and access recordings from any of your devices
  • Pause Live TV: pause a live show at anytime from any of your devices
  • Multi-Screen TV: watch from your mobile phone, tablet or personal computer
  • Send To Device: dynamically switch viewing from one device to another
  • Multiple profiles: create multiple profiles so each user has personalized suggestions and parental controls
  • Remote Control: use a mobile device to control playback on your TV or other devices
