As every other company continued to dish out a digital streaming service that let the user stay mobile and entertained at once, traditional TV services offered by cable companies such as Charter Spectrum™, Xfinity, and Cox found their standing more and more exposed to the danger of becoming extinct. But these companies indeed soldiered on, keeping up with the fast-paced innovations in the industry, introducing high-tech features to their TV services including a broad range of device compatibility, Video On Demand, DVR, parental controls, HD programming, TV Everywhere apps and so much more.

Still, who could beat on-the-go streaming services and apps that came without conventional strings? Well, Charter Spectrum™ certainly did, and quite splendidly too—albeit a little quiet when the Spectrum streaming service launched a couple of years ago.
