Among the many unique features offered by EPICO, Cogeco customers can 'power up epic entertainment' and access all their favourite content through a single interface, including their live and on-demand channels, as well as Netflix, YouTube, Disney+ and thousands of applications via the Google Play Store. They also benefit from an intuitive and even more personalized interface thanks to the per-user profile and features that will make their lives easier, such as voice command or the ability to restart a program that is currently being, or has recently been, broadcast. Finally, customers will be able to watch their content whenever and wherever they want, thanks to the EPICO 4K wireless cloud PVR with a capacity to record up to 1,000 hours of content, then download and watch it without an Internet connection using the EPICO mobile app.
