Google Home/Alexa

Consider adding Google Home/Alexa compatibility to Bluesky cable boxes... Has anyone looked at this? My TV's are all Smart and respond to google home commands, but when it comes time to change the channel, I need to pick up the remote. I know, first world problems, but it would sure be a nice feature... wireless or wired or bluetooth would be great...

You would need a device in between the Alexa and the BlueSky equipment. I use the Harmony smart hub, it works well for pause/play/skip, volume, channel entry and off/on. I find for other tasks like guide and pvr functions, it is easier to use the remote.

I actually have a Harmony Smart Hub, and even have the approval for the beta test program. How do you find it? Is setup and use fairly easy? Can you change the channels on the cable box by name or number? Any info you have would be appreciated, I just haven'tgot around to giving it a try...
