Cable TV is a must for all households, and no matter how many streaming platforms enter the market, nothing beats a good cable plan. Offering a myriad of channels, a huge on-demand library, and tons of storage space on your DVR to record shows, a contemporary cable TV service guarantees wholesome TV entertainment, and the flexibility to watch your favorites on any screen of your choice, at home or on the go. 

Providing you the best of both worlds, a subscription to a Spectrum TV® plan gets you access to the Spectrum TV app. With this app, you can watch live content as well as on-demand shows and movies no matter where you are. Not only when you are on the go, but also at home. And, this is what makes this app an invaluable feature of your Spectrum TV subscription. How come? You may ask. Because if you have more than one TV set at home, you will not need to invest in a separate cable box for each or use splitters to distribute the incoming signal. Rather you can save a good buck by streaming content on your Smart TV via the Spectrum TV app, and that too without any deterioration in the picture quality.

After all, if you own the tech-savvy LG Smart TV why would you not want to make the viewing experience even better, and let it be a treat for the eyes? HD video on a high-res sleek TV is sure to take your viewing experience to a whole other level.

So, if you want to put that LG Smart TV in your bedroom to good use, without a hike in your in-home entertainment bill, the Spectrum TV app is exactly what you need. Unfortunately, though, you can not download the Spectrum TV app directly on your LG Smart TV. Since the LG Smart TV runs on webOS, it does not have the official support to install the app as of yet. However, fret not. This in no way means you can not watch Spectrum Cable on your LG Smart TV. All you will need is a streaming device to get this party on the road, but rest assured it will be worth a shot.  

Spectrum Plans and Channels on the Spectrum App

Spectrum TV offers a wide variety of channels. From the latest news and the best dramas to all the sports you would ever want, the Spectrum channel lineup is truly marvelous at getting you all that and more. And guess what, you can get it all on the Spectrum app as well!

With the Spectrum TV app, you can watch your full channel lineup and up to 50,000 titles from the on-demand library when you are connected to your in-home Spectrum Internet. And, when you are out and about, not connected to Spectrum high-speed internet, you can still access a good number of networks included in your Spectrum Cable TV plan as well as on-demand titles—albeit fewer.  

The Spectrum TV app also gives you access to premium entertainment anywhere anytime, and on any screen—provided you are subscribed to networks such as HBO MAX™ and SHOWTIME®. The only thing is if you have signed up for Spectrum Select you will not be able to access these premium channels unless you add them to your package. So, if you want an even better channel selection on your app, you should consider an upgrade.

Below you will find a quick comparison of the 3 Spectrum TV plans and their prices—in case you find yourself inclined towards an upgrade. You can also speak to Spectrum experts at 855-423-0918 for pro advice about a possible upgrade.
