Take control of your entertainment
Amazon Alexa + FiOS Quantum TV = the ultimate television experience.
Voice-controlled devices seem to be popping up everywhere. From Siri to Microsoft Cortana, so many more people have the option of using an artificial intelligence to enhance their daily lives. And with Amazon’s Alexa, you can combine the power of voice-controlled devices with your television entertainment experience.
But what is alexa?
Alexa is an artificial intelligence, cloud-based platform that serves as your very own personal assistant. Created by Amazon, Alexa uses voice recognition technology to process your questions and respond through it’s speaker system. (Fun Fact: Alexa is named after the ancient Library of Alexandria in Egypt.)
What type of information can alexa provide?
Alexa can provide weather or traffic information, stream music, set your alarm, order an Uber and more.
How does Alexa work?
Alexa can perform these tasks thanks to programs called “skills”. A skill is similar to an app in that each skill provides Alexa with a new ability. Currently there are 25,000+ skills available for users (insane, we know).
Just by saying “Alexa”, you can initiate a command. For example, “Alexa, what’s the weather like today?” will lead Alexa to inform you of the current weather conditions.

- Connect your Frontier Set Top Box (STB) to the Internet.
