Cox Communications, also known as Cox Cables is a private establishment and is a subsidiary of Cox Enterprises. Other than providing digital cable television to various homes in United States, Cox also provides home automation services and telecommunications. Founded in the year 1962, the company has ever since become extremely popular and is the third largest cable television provider in the country. Cox has millions of subscribers subscribed for digital cable, internet and digital home services.
When cable television was popularized, Cox Enterprises decided to explore this market and went on to buy a number of these systems in Lock Haven, Oregon, California, Lewiston, Tyrone and Washington. This happened in the year 1962 and this subsidiary was named as Cox Broadcasting Corporation. However, the company became official only in the year 1964, when its shares started selling at the New York Stock Exchange and the company was declared a public sector. In the year 1985, Cox Enterprises reclaimed the company and made it a private subsidiary. Presently, the company has its headquarters in Georgia.
