You can now control your EE set top box with Amazon Alexa

EE's long-serving EE TV service has now became one of the first set top boxes world-wide to offer a skill for Amazon Alexa. That's right - EE TV will now support Alexa voice control through Amazon Echo or Echo Dot, meaning you can just ask for information on what's on, or record your favourite shows with a few uttered words.

So you can ask, “Alexa, ask EE TV what’s on tonight?” and Alexa will respond with three recommendations provided from the same source that supplies Freeview Picks. You can also ask about shows on any Freeview channel for either now or the following day. Pretty cool, huh? You can link EE TV to your Alexa account by enabling the EE TV skill via the Alexa app right now.
