One cannot simply run out of entertainment options nowadays. You have YouTube for quick streaming, you have Twitch for gaming videos and then you have Netflix for full-fledged movie/TV show streaming. And, there are countless other platforms as well. However, despite these streaming platforms gaining global attention, cable TV is yet to be wavered from its stance, and Spectrum has contributed massively to that cause – despite coming up with a streaming service of its own a year ago.

Charter Spectrum™ continues to cater to millions residing in 40 states with fiber-backed cable internet service and cable TV packages. Unlike streaming platforms, cable TV service from Spectrum presents audiences with an impressive channel lineup encompassing diverse genres. You get to watch so much in one go, you wouldn’t want to miss out on all that.  So don’t even consider cutting the cord yet!

In the extensive channel repository maintained by Spectrum, you have TLC too - a must-watch if you’re fond of reality TV shows.

TLC  – A Brief Overview

So 48 years ago, this pay-television network was launched by Discovery, Inc. Keeping in mind the type of content Discovery, Inc. airs, TLC went about a similar route. However, the channel shifted towards reality TV content and family/lifestyle shows as it continued to evolve. Ever since the turn towards programming that attracts mass consumption, roundabout in the 1990s, TLC has come to be recognized as a favorite among viewers of the said genre.

Which Number is TLC Channel on Spectrum TV?

As a direct consequence of the level of favor TLC has earned among TV watchers, the channel is available on the Spectrum TV line up. Spectrum TV plans are however divided into three categories i.e. SELECT, SILVER, and GOLD. And the GOLD tier, for instance, comes with over 200 channels. Surely you will not want to keep pressing your remote control buttons into oblivion to locate your favorite TLC.
