Spectrum TV App


This app is the icing on the cake when it comes to Spectrum and their absolutely terrible TV and Internet services. Whoever at the HQ in Stamford made this app needs to read this comment before reading anything else. This MIGHT help this app become a 5 star app maybe not. First the UI is sufficient but what I don't understand is why Spectrum software developers made this app to only handle 3 streams at once. I was watching Comedy Central on my surface and it was running fine until I changed the channel to MTV then I changed it back to Comedy Central and then that's when it appeared. And now I'm not able to watch anything. Also another thing is that this app keeps crashing in certain devices. There's not enough bandwidth, and this app is just overall pointless unless you have an actual STB ( set top box ) This app paired with Spectrum internet is also bad because I'm almost at my max bandwidth just using this app. If your having bandwidth issues go with 1080i like the STB's instead of 1080p. The Internet throttles down to about 30 Mbps from 100Mbps. If you guys actually listen to your customers maybe you I would be better but I highly doubt that but like I said if Spectrum makes those changes I might give it a 4 at least. Your number 2 in the country behind Xfinity Comcast and your slogan is
" redefining what a cable company can be " um I don't think your actually committed to that. So your number 2 in the country act like it.

What’s the point?


At first I was excited when I heard spectrum advertise “take your tv with you”... I thought this would be awesome, I could download the app, sign into my account, and watch the channels that I am paying for anywhere I have my phone/tablet/internet connection! You know, catch some of the game on lunch at work, watch news at night while kids are watching their stuff (when out on vacation), etc. NOPE!! It turns out that in order to get the tv that you are paying for, you have to be at HOME on your WiFi. I’m guessing that enough people complained, because I noticed the commercials changed to ‘watch to anywhere in your house’... news flash, I can do that anyway...without the app! I’m not sure why I would choose to watch tv in the comfort of my own home on a small device rather than my actual tv? I just dont understand why I have to have an account, but my channels aren’t linked to it outside of my home?

I did give the app a 2 because for what it says it will do, it does very well. The few times I did use the app in home just for kicks and giggles, I didn’t have any problems and the app performed on a 4 to 5 star level. But the 2 is b cause the app does LESS than one would expect from it!

Provisional review


My time with this app is about a minute at this point so it’s provisional on me spending more time with it. At this time this app purports to be an internet TV service yet I am on the internet and only get access to select channels even though my package is supposed to include much more. I have to actually go home still in order to watch any local tv or other useful information (for instance maybe I want to see what the local weatherman says over my lunch hour or before I head home from work).

Additionally, the app does not continue to provide audio in the background when I Switch apps. I hit my first commercial break and decided to write this review yet now I’m missing show content since it’s taken me long enough to write this review that I’m sure the commercials are over with.

Anyhow, that’s my first taste during my free trial. No crashes so far but seriously bummed I can’t access most of the content when I’m not actually at home. The rest of the family is going to have to weigh in if this service is useful enough for us to pay for it but for me this is pretty marginal today.
