The Control Center Service Plan is required to provide functionality to your Control Center and enable features such as universal search, voice control, content deep linking, voice assistant control and all the “Watch” features including: For Your Consideration, Crowd Surfing, Caavo Cache and access to content guides and My Lists.
Each Control Center will need its own Service Plan to enable full functionality.
Will my Control Center work without a Service Plan?
Yes, but you are missing out! Without the required Service Plan, Control Center operates as a universal remote control, but without voice, guides, universal search, Alexa, Google Home, or deep linking. You can still switch seamlessly between your devices and launch your linked apps and services from the Control Center menu.
