The Voice remote: the heart of your Helix experience
A remote that understands your commands? Really? Absolutely.
The advanced technology behind the Voice remote enables Helix to understand the commands you give it, while speaking naturally. Better still, it was designed to understand various English accents.
To use this feature, simply press the Microphone button while saying your command out loud. Remember that your Voice remote is not constantly listening to you speak, just when you press the button!
Here are a few things you can ask:
- Change channels
- Play a movie
- Display the time when the next game of your favourite sport is playing
- And even know the name of a song that’s playing during a movie!

Watching a movie or show away from your TV
Yes, it’s possible. First you have to download the free Helix app on your mobile device (cell phone or tablet).
Thanks to the free Helix app, you can view all your channels and recordings on your devices when at home. And when you’re out, you still have access to most of your channels on all your mobile devices, as long as you're connected to a network.
Are you at home?
You can stream content on your TV or mobile device. Just use your home Wi-Fi network.
Good to know
If your cell phone is connected to your wireless network, you won't use up your data. To watch a movie, series or show away from your TV, search through your recordings.
Not at home?
You can watch movies, series or shows on a mobile device. Even on the bus, in the subway, in a waiting room, etc.
To avoid using your precious data, connect to a Wi-Fi network to watch recorded content. Choose content you have already downloaded.
Thanks to the voice command, your search will suddenly become very simple.
No need to get involved in a long process of spelling on the screen! You now have all the time you need to let your curiosity run free.
