Watch Spectrum TV on Roku without Spectrum Internet

The Roku Spectrum TV App only works when you’re connected to Spectrum Internet. But there is a kinda-sorta workaround for streaming Spectrum on Roku without Spectrum Internet.

You can install individual TV channel apps and sign in with your Spectrum username. Some of the most popular Spectrum TV channel apps on Roku include:

  • CBS
  • NBC
  • ABC
  • Fox News
  • ESPN
  • CNN
  • HGTV
  • TLC

The catch is that you’ll need a separate app for each channel you want to watch on Roku. And some channels may not be available this way.

Spectrum TV App is the only way to stream your entire Spectrum channel lineup and on-demand content on Roku, and the only way to use the app is if you have Spectrum Internet. If you’re not a subscriber, you can call Spectrum customer service to sign up.

The Takeaway

Spectrum TV is available on Roku devices (third-generation and above) through the Spectrum TV App. You can stream Spectrum live TV channels and on-demand content through the app.

But you’re out of luck if you don’t have Spectrum Internet because most of the content is only available to stream through a Spectrum Internet plan. To sign up with Spectrum TV and Spectrum Internet, contact Spectrum customer service at 855-423-0918.
