What Channel İs Pay Per View On Spectrum

You may have a great cable plan with a channel lineup to die for, but as great as it maybe there will be times when you will find yourself wanting to watch the shows on the channels you dont have access to. The grass is always greener on the other side and you are bound to crave that which you dont have. So, what do you do?

Well, you cant change providers every other month, nor is upgrading your plan an option. The former may cost you a lot in early termination fee and the latter in installation charges for the new setup; also upgrading will significantly increase your monthly bill – a consequence which was sure you would want to steer clear of. So, do you kill your desires and stay content with what you have? You can, but you should not have to. With Spectrum service you can have it all and that too at a reasonable price.

If you want to watch shows on channels that are not included in your plan, you can opt for the Spectrums Pay Per View option. It is the perfect solution to your entertainment dilemmas.

What is Pay Per View and How Does it Work?

Spectrum TV allows its customer to watch Live events and the latest movies, irrespective of whether or not they have access to the network the program is aired on. So how does that work? Well, using the Pay Per View option you can pick only those Live sporting events or movies that you would love to watch – as the name suggests the PPV option has an additional but one-time charge attached to it.

Love boxing and wrestling? Cant live without College Sports but dont want the higher monthly package charges that progressively deplete your savings account? Just go the Pay Per View route. You can watch WWE, professional and college sports, concerts, or whatever you like at the price you like. Interested in getting to know more? Well, you are not the only one, just read on and you will know all you need to in order to access the entertainment you deserve.

Which Pay Per View Events Can You Watch?

If you have watched on-demand content that Spectrum offers, you will have an idea of what were talking about. With Spectrum On Demand, you simply find a show or movie you like in the library and you can watch it free of cost if the correlating network is included in your subscription. Pay Per View is similar, except if it is a Live event you are after, you will have to search for the date and time it will air on and request to watch it on Pay Per View basis. Here are some events you will be able to watch this way.

WWE

Packed with action to the core, WWE offers intense fights and passionate drama, such that there is never a lack of entertainment. When Brock Lesnar won the title, it was a show to be seen. Fighting the likes of John Cena, Tyson Fury, and Braun, you know its close competition - one you simply cant miss.

Boxing

For sports fans who cant live without boxing, this may be your chance to watch it all. You can watch the much-awaited fight by tuning in via Pay Per View when the event airs. Youll find a list of upcoming events online. So, find the match you are looking for, check the date and time, and order. The cost will be mentioned right there so you have all the information you need.

UFC

While UFC used to be a part of Spectrum Pay Per View, thats no longer the case. For UFC fans its a big letdown, but there are other events available that you can tune into.

How to Order Spectrum Pay Per View

There are multiple ways through which you can order Pay Per View. It might seem like a hassle, but we promise its easy.

Order Using Your TV Remote

One of the easiest ways to do so is using your TV remote. Just follow these three easy steps and you will be done in no time.

Bear in mind though not all events are available in all areas, so make sure to check if the list includes the events you are looking forward to.

Register Your Order with Spectrum Customer Service

If you find it difficult to order using your TV remote, you can simply call Spectrum Customer Service at 1-855-423-0918, and they will guide you through the process. Note, once you place the order, you will be asked for your 4-digit Purchase PIN to process the order.  

Both the methods are easy, however, wed recommend you order using your remote. Why do you ask? Well, in case you miss the show you ordered via PPV you wont be charged, provided the order was placed using the remote. If however, it was ordered through phone, you will have to pay no matter what.

When to Place Spectrum Pay Per View Order

Wondering by when you should place your order? Well, you must order an hour before the show starts or, in case it already has, you can order until 30 minutes after the fact. If more time has elapsed, you wont be able to order.

TV Plans that Offer Pay Per View

No matter which plans you are subscribed to, you can use the Pay Per View service from Spectrum. Whether it is Spectrum Select, in which case you may be craving some HBO® time, or it is Spectrum Silver, but you want more to feed your sports fandom. The same is the case with Spectrum Gold – you have the PPV option on hand - but with every possible avenue of entertainment already available in this plan, you wont be likely to crave PPV content.

Is PPV Available in Spanish?

Spectrum offers many plans that are specifically designed for the Hispanic community, and if you wish to watch Spanish channels through Pay Per View, you can definitely do that too. PPV en Español (PPVE) is the Spanish version, which gives you access to everything Spanish.

The Cons of PPV

With PPV you can watch anything you like at reasonable rates however, just not everything you want to. There is a limit on the Pay Per View events you can purchase. However, for loyal Spectrum customers who have been using the service for at least 6 months and have a good standing, Spectrum is willing to increase the limit. Just call Spectrum Customer Service and they will help you get it done.

Another limitation on PPV is the number of times you can view the movie or event. In the case of a movie, you can watch it as many times as you wish within 24 hours of purchase. As for a live event, however, you can only view it once when it airs. The silver lining is that you can watch the movies and events via multiple receivers without having to pay extra.

So, Whats the Verdict?

With Spectrum, you dont ever feel that you cant watch something. With the great Spectrum channel lineup to keep you entertained day in and day out you are good to go. If however, you find yourself getting bored or wanting to watch that show everyone is talking about, but it isnt included in your plan, you can always order it via Pay Per View. It is a great option to have so wed say, go ahead. Then again if you find yourself ordering the same show and events over and over again, you might want to upgrade your plan. Either way, you win, so go ahead and watch what your heart desires.
