Access to the latest TV shows, feature films, Hollywood blockbusters, and popular TV show reruns has become simpler thanks to streaming giants like Netflix. You no longer have to wait for the clock to strike 8 P.M. to watch the most popular current primetime show. The new face of entertainment is to ensure it is available on the go regardless of your time, location, and other boundaries.
That could be taken to mean cable TV has become old-school. After all, you can just stream content—and get access to thousands of popular choices every month. But this stiff competition has only motivated cable TV providers like Charter Spectrum™ to strengthen their grip on TV watching audiences in the U.S. market. The renowned nationwide cable provider introduced a contemporary novelty to its conventional cable TV services. Spectrum TV brought forth an array of options that accompany your subscription to one of the primary channel lineups.
The crème de la crème of Spectrum cable TV service is certainly its colossal GOLD lineup of 200 channels, but that is more like the tip of the iceberg. There is a basket full of goodies that comes with your primary subscription—no matter which of the three Spectrum channel packages you pick.
Spectrum channel packages are not limited to a handful of genres. Entertainment for the whole household is readily available via HBO®. For the reality TV binge-watchers, there is E! and TLC. All the little ones in your home can tune in to Cartoon Network, Nick Jr., and Nickelodeon. But if you are looking for a network that leans more toward mature audiences and airs comical content, sitcoms, talk shows, and more, then the Comedy Central channel on Spectrum is the ideal pick.
Owned by ViacomCBS, and run under its domestic network division’s Entertainment & Youth Group unit, Comedy Central was launched in 1991. And, has since been a renowned comedy channel among mature audiences. In 2018, the channel was estimated to be available to over 86 million U.S. households. The Comedy Central channel however does not operate in the U.S. alone. Since the early 2000s, it has managed to expand viewership on a global scale. And localized versions are now available across Europe, Latin America, Middle East, India, Southeast Asia, Australia, New Zealand, and Africa.
While Comedy Central’s original and syndicated programming is designed for mature audiences, you can binge on diverse genres across Comedy Central’s sister channels i.e. Nickelodeon, MTV, Showtime, CBS, and more.
Comedy Central’s programming lineup gives you a lot to pick from. Do you think you can keep up with 23 seasons of South Park? Or are you someone whose preferences are more inclined towards stand-up comedy specials? Well, either way, Comedy Central caters to mature taste in entertainment with its extensive comedy programming.
Speaking of access to Comedy Central, as we said earlier, the channel is a popular highlight of the Spectrum TV Channel Lineup. And, all three Spectrum TV tiers i.e. SELECT, SILVER, & GOLD include the Comedy Central channel. So, if by any chance you are not yet subscribed to Spectrum, and Comedy Central is one of the must-have channels for your family, you can pick any one of the three Spectrum channel packages.
The basic Spectrum TV plan i.e. SELECT, offers 125 channels showcasing programming from a variety of categories. You get local channels like FOX, CBS, PBS, NBC, and a good balance of popular networks like AMC, the Discovery Channel, ESPN, and more. However, premium networks like HBO®, SHOWTIME®, EPIX®, etc. are available as add-ons for Spectrum SELECT. The SILVER plan builds on SELECT. It gives you access to every network included in the SELECT lineup and more, among its 175 channels. Premium entertainment from HBO® and SHOWTIME® comes included in SILVER. Lastly, the GOLD plan with its 200 channels brings you all of the SILVER and offers additional premium networks like STARZ/ENCORE, NFL Network, BeIN Sports, and more!

Amid the plethora of American cable channels, Comedy Central has long been a one-stop-shop for comical sitcoms, stand-up comedies, surreal animated shows, feature films, and all things comedy. Besides offering the type of content you would love to unwind with after a tiring day at work, the Comedy Central channel has played a key role in how TV programming has changed in general. For instance, how the Daily Show with John Stewart influenced TV talk shows to become political. And, also how TV comedy came to have such a wide scope following an introduction to new viewpoints by comedians Dave Chappelle and Amy Schumer.
This is why from scripted TV shows and original animated-sitcoms like South Park to stand-up comedy specials starring Anthony Jeselnik and William Frederick Burr, you never get bored for a second!
