Well, it looks like we are taking a big step closer to A La Carte TV! Recently Spectrum TV’s streaming has quietly started to allow customers to sign up for a small core package of channels and you can add 10 channels you pick to the service.
Spectrum seems to be very quietly promoting the service mostly by phone to internet only customers right now. The package offers your locals including PBS and 25 music channels. From there you can pick 10 additional channels from a long list of channels including AMC, Cartoon Network, Comedy Central, ESPN, FOX News, Hallmark Channel, NFL Network, The Weather Channel, and more.
You can even add premium networks like HBO, Showtime, STARZ, and more for an extra fee.
There is no box fee as you can stream your content through their Roku channel. If you want a DVR though you will have to pay to rent a DVR box.
We found very little about the service online. As best we can tell it first popped up in the forums of SatelliteGuys.us in a post from a reader. Though a lot seems to have changed since that forum post was made as it is now cheaper and available as a streaming-only option. We did find the official website for Spectrum TV Choice thanks to a tip from a reader.
According to our reader, the service costs $21.99 for the first 24 months. (no contract cancel anytime.) You will need Spectrums internet service to get the a la carte TV package.
This as far as we can tell is as close as we have ever come to a true a la carte TV package.
