TURN ANY ROOM INTO A TV ROOM
Your subscription to Spectrum TV turns your device into another TV screen and lets you watch live TV and On Demand programming anywhere in your home when connected to your Spectrum Internet WiFi network. Watch movies from your bedroom, take cooking shows with you to the kitchen or catch up with the news from your breakfast table.
FIND YOUR FAVORITE PROGRAMS
• Filter live TV by category, sort by channel number, network names or program titles and quickly recall recently watched channels.
• Create a personalized guide by setting favorite channels.
• Search by title, person or sports team anywhere in the app.
CONTROL YOUR TV and DVR
Depending on your service area and equipment, you can use your phone or tablet to:
• Change TV channels on your Spectrum receiver.
• Record your favorite TV shows and movies.
• Delete and modify DVR recordings individually or by series.
• Play a DVR recording on your TV (compatible DVRs only).
• Give your Spectrum receivers nicknames to help you know which one you're scheduling recordings on (go to Settings).
SET PARENTAL CONTROLS
When you turn on Parental Controls and set a PIN, you can block shows by channel or rating. You'll need to turn on Parental Controls for each device your household uses, but the channel and rating blocks you set up apply across all devices.
WHAT YOU NEED TO USE THIS APP
• Available programming is based on your Spectrum TV subscription package and whether or not you're connected to your Spectrum Internet WiFi network at home.

NOTE ON AVAILABILITY
We make every effort to offer the same live and On Demand programming that you can watch on your TV, and we frequently add new channels. However, programming restrictions keep us from making every channel available on the Spectrum TV App. Channel availability also varies by market.
What's New in Version 5.11
We fixed a bug that could occasionally require an app restart to watch channels on Live TV.
On Guide, a few of the Watch in App options weren't pointing to the right place. They're fixed now.
We took care of an issue that could cause Live TV to unmute itself.
Room for improvement
Update: 18Jul2017. App was doing great for a while but today's update requires you to touch the app because it constantly shuts off.
Update: 26Mar2017. App works now but you constantly have to touch the app to prevent it from dimming or completely turn the screen off. Previous version wasn't like this.
Update: 22MAR2017. The app crashes and nothing can be viewed at this time. Bad update.
The app seems to work just fine for me. I'm not having the issues others are having. I can't give it 5 stars quite yet. I'm used to Directv's features in their app. I will admit that I must adjust to a different culture and setup. I still think however that Spectrum can improve. Time will allow that.
Latest update broke the app
Was working fine and now it will not launch properly. I even tried to uninstall and reinstall.
I read on their forums that resetting your account password even if you just reset it back to you original password seems to fix things. I did just that and it worked.
The most recent update bricked my app, but after 24 hours the issue resolved itself. No password reset or uninstall required.
I love this app. The bulk of the channels I get via my cable box come in crystal clear with only a minimal delay. Well done, Spectrum.
