Spectrum is the second largest cable service provider in the U.S., with coverage in 41 states. With widespread nationwide availability, it is one of the most popular cable TV providers too―although ready access to the service is not the only reason. One big reason why customers like Spectrum TV packages is plans are built to fit almost all types of households―whether you want a more basic lineup or a bigger one, the option to leave it to essentials or customize in any way you want is there.

In this article, we discuss everything you need to know about Spectrum TV plans, prices, channel lineups, and how you can make the most out of your experience―read on and help yourself choose the plan that is more in line with your needs and budget.

Spectrum TV Packages – TV Select Signature & TV Select Plus

When it comes to Spectrum TV plans, you get quality and value in one place. There are two service tiers available. And, either of the Spectrum TV Select base-level plans can be a good choice if you want to pay only for what you watch and enjoy.

Spectrum TV Select Signature is the starter TV plan that acts as a great base package. It is priced at $64.99 per month for 12 months and comes with 150+ channels in the lineup. It is a befitting choice for people who are looking for a channel selection that covers all the most-watched networks.

If you are more into sports and need to stay in touch with the regional scene, Spectrum TV Select Plus is a better option for you. You get to enjoy over 160 channels―with a selection of regional and popular sports networks―perfect for sports enthusiasts. This plan is priced at $74.99 per month for 12 months and is quite a steal for people who want regional sports on their lineup without having to pay too much for that.

Lastly, Mi Plan Latino may be a relatively less talked about TV plan from Spectrum, but one that is definitely a crowd-favorite. This plan comes with 145+ channels of which over 75 are Spanish, making it a must-have for Hispanic homes. It is priced at only $39.99 per month for 12 months and considering the nice mix of networks it offers, one to consider if you have a Spanish-speaking household.

Spectrum TV Packages – A Select Channel Lineup

Signature or Plus, both Spectrum TV Select packages have a channel lineup that is quite similar with a few differences. Let us take a look at some of the most popular networks you can find in key programming categories offered by Spectrum TV.

Do bear in mind, there may be variations depending on where you live―we’d recommend to confirm availability of your favorite channels at the time you order your Spectrum TV package.

Cable companies are required to include local broadcast and public access networks as part of their basic channel lineup, so local broadcast networks are offered with whatever TV plan you get. This is why both Spectrum TV Select plans include the local feed of channels like ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, and FOX in the lineup.

Favorites like IFC, Smithsonian Channel, and Sundance TV are offered by both the channel lineups for TV Select. For children, Disney and Nickelodeon come included, along with Music Choice – Kids Only, and Music Choice – Toddler Tunes. For gags and giggles, you get Comedy Central!
