Standing in a queue to get tickets for the next big Hollywood blockbuster has always had a charm of its own. But now movie buffs, who miss out on their favorite movies, can catch those on streaming platforms like Netflix and Hulu too. Streaming services have become the next go-to thing for Gen-Z in particular. “Is not cable TV a tad too conventional?” “Is not cord-cutting the new norm now?” These arguments are common and fuel the trend to stream content instead of accessing it via a pay-TV service.  

With that said, the ground reality is cable TV has not lost its traditional charm for millions even now—especially given the fact most cable TV providers have revamped their service features in recent years, bringing to the table a level of convenience and flexibility, otherwise associated with streaming services only.

For instance, Charter Spectrum™ has ensured to modernize its cable TV offerings while sustaining the package appeal of traditional pay-TV. Today, Spectrum Cable TV not only offers a massive lineup of over 200 TV channels but makes it possible for subscribers to access entertainment in many flexible, convenient, and affordable ways. With Spectrum Primetime On Demand, you can catch on TV favorites on your own timeline. The 80 network apps let you stream your watch list on whichever screen you may fancy. The DVR service helps you record and store programs that you would like to binge on at your leisure. Plus, Spectrum gives you the option to customize your entertainment regime with TV add-ons including premiums like HBO Max™, EPIX®, SHOWTIME®, STARZ®, TMC, and CINEMAX®. For the sports-obsessed, there is a variety of sports networks in the Spectrum Sports Package that gives access to everything from pro to college sports and minor to major league events.  

All in all, Spectrum TV packages are designed to ensure quality-level entertainment in all its colors—for the grown-ups and the young ones in the family, for a weekend stay-in with friends, and more! Minus all the bells and whistles that come with the service—even the Spectrum Channel Lineup on its own tells how the provider endeavors to add value to your subscription. That is why you do not only find networks that broadcast mainstream content, but ones that showcase original, artistic, and insightful content. And, one such network is Sundance TV—described by fans as “Ahead of the Curve, Intelligent, Original, Interesting and Engaging”. So, whether it is drama, comedy, docuseries, reality TV or talk shows that are your thing, you can catch entertaining and thought-provoking content with the Sundance channel on Spectrum.
