Your One-Stop Guide to Spectrum TV Streaming Service

Spectrum Tv Streaming Service

The forms of entertainment have evolved quite dramatically with the digital era fast moving from one novel innovation to another. We no longer have to lug a bulky book around to entertain ourselves while traveling - Kindle made sure of that. We no longer have to pay an enormous fee for a Broadway show to feast on premium entertainment - TV services offering premium content guaranteed that. And we no longer have to stick to a couch with our face glued to a box in order to get entertained by our beloved screen-stars - TV streaming services and apps warranted mobility.

As every other company continues to dish out a digital streaming service that lets the user stay mobile and entertained at once, traditional TV services offered by telecom companies such as Charter Spectrum™, Xfinity, AT&T, and Cox have become more and more exposed to the danger of becoming extinct. But these companies are indeed soldiering on, keeping up with the fast-paced innovations in the industry, introducing high-tech features to their TV services i.e. a broad range of device compatibility, Video On Demand, DVR, parental controls, HD programming, TV Everywhere apps and so much more.

Still, who can beat the on-the-go streaming services and apps that come without the conventional strings? Well, Charter Spectrum™ certainly did, and quite splendidly too, albeit a little quieter, with its Spectrum TV Streaming Service.

What is Spectrum TV Streaming?

The streaming service from Spectrum has been designed for current subscribers of Spectrum Internet and is offered as an alternative to competing over-the-top (OTT) services, which may target and appeal to the Spectrum consumer.

Spectrum’s TV streaming service offers an impressive variety of channels from the provider’s cable lineup, On Demand content, and everything else that a Spectrum TV package traditionally entails. All of that can now be viewed on any screen, anywhere via the Spectrum TV app – whether it is in the comfort of your home or while you enjoy time out at a roadside café. And that too, at a cost far less than what a conventional pay-TV service would make you incur.

The Perks of Spectrum TV Streaming

It is the More Economical Option

The idea of streaming Spectrum TV works particularly for the audience that finds Spectrum’s TV Select, Silver, and Gold too expensive, and is also on the lookout for a more mobile way of keeping themselves entertained. Spectrum furnishes for them an economical counterpart array of its cable TV plans - Spectrum TV Essentials, Spectrum TV Choice, and Spectrum TV Stream – eligible Spectrum subscribers have 3 well-tiered low-cost streaming plans to choose from to keep themselves entertained anytime anywhere. So if you are subscribed to Spectrum Internet, and have been contemplating an IPTV service, take a look at how Spectrum’s TV streaming service can help you acquire a much cheaper and more personalized form of entertainment through its varied plans:

Spectrum TV Essentials — the incredibly low price of the service i.e. under $15/month is a delightful surprise to Spectrum Internet consumers without a pay-TV service. Considering the price-point, the channel lineup is a whopping 50 and offers holistic programming that covers lifestyle, news, entertainment, and kids.

Spectrum TV Choice — as implied by its name, the service offers the choice of tailoring the entertainment plan in line with individual preferences. Apart from the select major broadcast networks included, subscribers can get 10 networks of their choice from legions of options, taking customization to the next level – all at a starting price that is under $25.

Spectrum TV Stream — the Spectrum TV Stream comes with a set channel lineup of 25 prominent networks, including Fox, ABC, NBC, and CBS alongside Spectrum News. While some other American favorites that you can stream are: A&E USA, Animal Planet, Freeform, AMC, Discovery, HGTV, Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, and Comedy Central. And guess what! This all-round streaming option comes for under $25 too.

There is only one caveat as far as the TV Stream and TV Essentials are concerned, that you must be aware of – neither offers an option to include sports programming. That, however, does justify their low price tags. These streaming services are perfect for solitary individuals who love to enjoy downtime on their own, don’t aspire for too extensive a channel lineup, and definitely do not mind the absence of sports programming.

Access Everything without Additional Cost

As we said a little earlier, depending on the Spectrum TV streaming plan that you have subscribed to, you will be able to access the full extent of prescribed channels via the Spectrum TV app on all internet-enabled compatible devices. You can even watch Live TV while waiting in the queue at your stylist’s, and without incurring any additional cost – after all, Spectrum’s half a million Wi-Fi hotspots are totally at your disposal nationwide!

And that’s not all, there’s more! You even get to access the humongous On Demand library with more than 40,000 movie and TV show titles, that you can access on your own schedule.

In fact, the app is compatible with your iOS and Android smartphone or tablet, Xbox One, Roku, Samsung Smart TV, and all Amazon Devices.

Never Miss a Show with DVR

The optional DVR service lets you record and stores your favorite shows for later – imagine chilling out after a hectic day at work with theatre quality, pocket-friendly televisual entertainment!

Depending on your chosen plan, there may however be certain genres unavailable to you.

All in One Customized Streaming
