In order to better connect its Hispanic customer base with its services, Cablevision announced this morning that it has launched a new Web portal, Optimum.net en Español.
The new Web portal knits together Cablevision’s Optimum services with full Spanish-language features, such as My Account, bill pay, support, online DVR management and Optimum TV to Go TV Everywhere services, which includes Univision’s UVideos.
In addition, subscribers can also browse, search and discover the full suite of Optimum products and features via Explore Optimum, as well as a custom site search.
The Spanish-language Web portal also allows customers to access their email and voicemail directly from the homepage, as well as tune into “News12 en Español” where available.
