Alexa experience for set-top boxes
The latest solution by MyBox would allow the cable and direct-to-home (DTH) operators to come out with pre-existing set-top boxes, compatible with Alexa. Connected with hub and microphone-enabled remote control of MyBox, customers will have access to Alexa and they can also control their smart home devices, shop for household goods, play music, and many more.

Collaborating with Amazon, MyBox’s world-class R&D team has created a set-top box with rich voice functionality. With Alexa now part of the TV environment, MyBox is committed to bringing new voice-forward video experiences to TV viewers.”
