Cox is providing exclusive national content on its recently launched YurView network, available to Cox video customers in all markets. The company has rebranded existing local cable programming stations and is enhancing the lineup with nationally produced content. In March, YurView will feature an inside look at the largest consumer technology conference in the world via “Tech Trends” and exclusive basketball debate and analysis to coincide with March Madness in “Dash to the Desert.”
YurView will continue to offer local programming in Cox markets including high school, college and Olympic sports, live events and regional shows. The rebranded network will supplement local content with nationally produced series and shows as well as digital exclusives on yurview.com.
“Our focus remains on telling local stories that help people connect to the things they love, but we can also produce national content that resonates across markets based on universal interests,” said John Parris, director, content operations, YurView.
Tech Trends premiered on March 5 and will run multiple times per week throughout March. The show highlights the best of the Consumer Electronics Show, an annual gathering of 170,000 tech leaders, developers and entrepreneurs in Las Vegas, through the eyes of on-the-ground correspondents: consumer tech blogger Sarah Evans and Snapchat influencer Danny Berk. Sarah and Danny spoke to entrepreneurs and tech leaders and tried everything from virtual gaming to smart toilets.
