The Spectrum TV app is a convenient way to access Spectrum TV in or out of the house. But, available channels and on-demand shows change when you’re off your home Spectrum internet network (read: you get fewer). The Spectrum TV app works, but it doesn’t quite replace cable.
It does provide a few of the perks of a livestreaming TV service, though, like sorting favorite channels by preference. On your phone, the app can also function as a remote when you’ve lost the TV clicker in the couch cushions again (it happens).
Considering that it comes free with Spectrum service, the Spectrum TV app is good to have handy, even if it’s not your go-to TV viewing choice.
