Spectrum’s Live TV Streaming Service is Rolling Out to New Markets


Back in June Charter’s Spectrum TV started to roll out their own live TV streaming service. Joining a growing list of live TV services like Sling TV, DIRECTV NOW, PlayStation Vue, Hulu, and more.

At launch, the service was limited in available and mostly was only in legacy Charter markets. Now spectrum is expanding the rollout to new markets in the TWC area. There still is no website to find out if you have it in your area and waiting for a flyer or calling in is the only way to find out if you can get the new Spectrum TV Stream service. (Just a reminder you need Spectrum Internet to get their Spectrum TV Stream service.)

The new Spectrum TV Stream service costs $19.95 a month with no long-term contracts. It will include all your local stations and even PBS. You will also find A&E, History, Hallmark, FX, TLC, WGN America, AMBC, HGTV, and more. In total, you will get over 25 live TV networks.  You will also get access to 5,000 free on-demand titles and will also be able to access many network apps with your Spectrum Stream login.

There is also the ability to add HBO, SHOWTIME, The Movie Channel, Starz, and StarzEncore for $15 a month. Or, if you just want one of these, you can get it for just $7.50 a month (Locked in for 3 years).

If you want sports and more news options you will need to pay $12 more a month you can add ESPN channels, NBC Sports, Bloomberg, HLB and more for an additional fee.

Spectrum Stream is available on iOS, Android, Roku, Xbox One, and Samsung Smart TVs.

    I would like to know all the channels in the sports package. I have searched the web including the Spectrum web site and cannot find a list.

  • GMan524

    But no DVR capability?

  • Scott

    So, no Apple TV and no DVR, correct?

    Cord Cutters News is becoming as bad as the cable companies with the false advertisements!
    When there are fees added that are mandatory, then that is not the TRUE cost of the service.
    Please stop saying the Spectrum Streaming service is $19.95
    It is $27.45 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I repeat. It is $27.45 once you add in the mandatory fee. You should at least CLEARLY point this out in the article!

    If there are any fee’s added on to the advertised price, then it is not at that price. One of the reasons most cord cutters have left the cable companies in the first place!

      Too bad the price really isn’t $19.95. Otherwise this package looks like a good mix of channels.

      • Phuq_Me

        Then pay $100 for their cable service then.

    • Iphart

      And you forgot to mention that they also add anywhere from $4-7 tax on top of that.
      This is what I used to pay:
      $19.95+$7.50 (broadcast fee)+$4.25 (tax)+$15 (premiums) = $46.70

      You really do not need dvr since their OnDemand is pretty good. Has a section on what you missed last night and has all the shows from all the channels that was on prime time the night before.
      Still dvr would be nice. Having all the premiums for $15 is nice too!

    we signed up for the spectrum stream in may. we got hbo with locals plus 15 other channels. price was 19.99 (plus usually fees and taxes which equals about $33) service works well. recently i called to see about getting faster internet and was told our stream tv package was the old one and i might have to change to the new one they offer. guess we will see what happens.

    • Chris P

      LOL there’s nothing “usual” about fees.

  • K_Dot

    I use to be on their cable services for one year and paid $118 a month. After the one year discount, it went to $150 and that was total bullshit…the only reason I had it was for the Lakers game on Spectrum Sportsnet and today was the preseason game and I hate that it was blackout on NBA TV, where the game was schedule to be shown and I happen to be in the LA area…I hope their sports package has the Spectrum Sportsnet.

  • TexMarque

    I’m really amazed that Disney licensed this without a mandatory ESPN channel. Are there any Disney channels?

  • BloodLust

    I wouldn’t take there service if it was FREE! These money raping clowns can die when cable does.

  • JM Carl

    Just called to get this service. Spectrum customer service rep says that it is ONLY available to customers that have not had Spectrum TV cable service for 30+ days!

    • Iphart

      That is BS, call again and talk to a different rep. If you want the service that is.
      They told me the same and the last time I had TWC/Spectrum was like over 10 years ago.

  • They are offering free Roku’s now! All companies are good and bad! I use Spectrum for my internet! And I have their Spectrum Tv stream and Netflix only! Everything eventually goes up folks!
