Awful on TVos 1/5
subtitles are missing a couple letters every couple of sentences, skipping forward or backwards is awful and always trying to access last watched or the guide.
No AirPlay 1/5
By Old Diver
With today’s update 4/8/20 Airplay still doesn’t work with the Apple TV 3rd generation. The frequent updates never seem to fix anything.
Cannot Manage DVR 1/5
I’ve had Spectrum almost a year, and my DVR is still not accessible via the app to record shows or manage my recordings. This is the worst cable TV app I’ve ever used, and I’m considering canceling my service for good.
Good, but not great 4/5
I like the versatility within my home. I’m a dad and get called away a lot. My live feed gets stuck often on my phone. I have an IPhone 8 and it’s been updated on the most recent upgrade software so not sure why that happens. I really like the on demand shows cuz I can start and stop my shows and not miss anything.
Not quality 4/5
My sound turned of only on Fox News, I select another channel and the sound works just fine. I tried to submit feedback through the app and the submit button is missing.
As of version 7.21 App no longer streams to Apple TV 4/5
By ROCK ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
4/8/20 Update: Version 7.22 solved this issue. Thank you!
I have been using this app for months and frequently stream to my Apple TV and as of a couple days ago after the app update to version 7.21 the streaming no longer works. Very disappointed.
App doesn’t work on roku 1/5
I did the update it works on Apple TV but not my roku
Love My Spectrum App 5/5
By L. Annette Smith
I’m not feeling well today, and decided to spend the day in bed with chicken soup and my iPad. There’s no TV in the guest room, but I wanted to keep away from my husband; I didn’t wanna make him sick too.
I thought of Spectrum, how you can download the App and watch TV? I did it and it was SO easy! I’m watching A lot of oldies, the news and some of my favorite shows.
Latest April update 2020 1/5
By Droid Bot
Most tomes now, my screen is all black-except for the closed captions. Can’t see. It’s broken
Constant IUC 9000 Error Since July 2018 - I’m Done with Spectrum 1/5
App has not worked since July 2018 - after numerous conversations with Spectrum tech reps, I was finally informed the IUC 9000 Error code indicates that if you’re using Spectrum internet/WiFi & a Spectrum Cable subscriber, if it’s community based, you’ll not be able to use the Spectrum TV App (even in your own home). The NY State AG took legal action against Spectrum for false advertising of internet speeds, etc. Google it; you’ll see that, in NY State, officials finally listened to the numerous complaints against this company.
Surprised to see App now rated over 4.4 stars despite all the negative reviews. Very suspicious of recent high ratings; don’t personally know anyone that can get the App to work. Less than a year ago it was consistently rated 1.9 stars.
Feb 10, 2019 Update: Hasn’t worked since July 2018
March 19, 2019: Hasn’t worked since July 2018

Never works well on iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV 1/5
I’ve been using this app for a few months, and it’s performance across platforms makes no sense to me. On my Samsung Frame TV the app works very well, and very consistently. However on my iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV it almost never starts on the first try, and if it loads at all it’s after 3-5 reload attempts. If it wasn’t cheaper than other services I wouldn’t use it. I may leave it soon if it doesn’t improve.
Love live tv! 5/5
I love watching live TV on the Spectrum app! Plus I love the on demand feature. Keep it up!
My review 2/5
I never write reviews but this app is great but it says you will have to update the app to watch certain shows and it is updated so it is very annoying.
On My iPhone 11 Fox News & Fox Business audio blocked by fluttering noise 1/5
IOS Spectrum app when on Fox News and Fox Business channel video is fine, but the audio on those two specific channels is blocked by a fluttering noise. Curiously the audio and video works just fine on the rest of the some 40 channels I’ve used IOS app on. This has been going on through multiple IOS 13.xx and Spectrum app updates.
And here’s the kicker:
Through the -same- wireless network and spectrum internet connection my on my old Android 8.1 the Spectrum TV app works just hunky dory fine on all channels, including Fox News & Business channels. In fact using Edge browser, the spectrum watch TV website works just fine on all channels also. That includes all my Windows 10 devices, including my Desktop, Laptop and two Microsoft Lumia 950 smartphones.
Bizarre I know, but true. Could someone please check this out and FIX this, which appears to be an obvious problem specific to iPhone/IOS?
No sound! 1/5
All channels have sound EXCEPT FOX NEWS! And then if I try to submit feedback, it won’t allow the submission of what I type. Fix the sound please
Recorded shows 3/5
By Words 4friends
When will I be able to watch recorded TV shows (on my new receivers) on my IPad like I did with older receivers?
I have been unable to view any channels on the app. Each time I click on a channel I can hear the voices but no picture shows on all channels. I’ve deleted the app and reinstalled it and still unable to get a picture to show.
By frustrated ige-9000
App hasn’t worked in two days
Broken again. 1/5
By Redford Phyl
Whatever the latest app update fixed, the latest iOS update broke again. I either get a black screen or a freezing picture. Frustrating.
No Dolby ! Ok streaming App. No Dolby Digital!!!! 2/5
App works Ok .
It’s been updated to improve buffering issues.
NO Dolby Digital source plays from it on my Apple TV ..that’s a Huge deal !! ... it’s 2020!!
UI is ok. Give me cleaner and more modern look. Maybe a preview tile on the show you’re hovering over in the guide list.
Get with the times .... you want to dive into streaming but do it half a**ed.. Give me modern, give me no buffer issues and some Dolby audio !
iPad Pro Black Video 1/5
iPad Pro iOS 13.4, audio plays but video is black. This is the buggiest of all apps.
Schedule TV recording 1/5
Fix your app so you can schedule to record a series.
The apps reliability is iffy at best. Works fine for a little while then has “connectivity issues”. Now before we blame the connection or the device, the other apps work fine with no connectivity issues & the other devices work just fine.
Live TV drags after commercials 1/5
By DarlingNikki 222
As long as I’m watching something it’s fine. As soon as a commercial comes on, there’s a lag. The screen freezes and I have to close the app and reopen it.
IOS app 1/5
This app continuously closes when I try to open the guide to view HD channels. Frustrating!,,
Mad mad mad 1/5
I’m no longer able to get regular tv Chanel’s.
the whole point of the Spectrum TV app is to watch live tv on you’re phone or any device. Unfortunately, it is not allowing me to watch the main channels; such as 2-10. I do not have a TV in my room and wanted to just watch tv on my phone on channel CBS but it is not allowing me because it saying it is ineligible for it. very unhappy.
By Murphy Mac
I like the interface for switching to recent channels. But it would be great if you could Airplay to external speakers. Currently you can only Airplay to Apple TV. I’d like to watch on iPad while listening on external speakers with Airplay. Netflix and many other apps support this.
August 2019: External speaker support via Airplay was working. But if I select external speakers now the video stops and a caption says, “Playing on your TV.” So Airplay to external speakers is broken again.
Update December 2019: App still doesn’t know difference between external speaker and external screen. It used to, like Netflix does. Also thinks I’m on vpn when I’m not.
April 2020: App still broken. Thinks Airplay to external speaker (Sonos) should stop video on local device. Come on.
Cannot schedule recording 1/5
Channels 602 -609 intermittently has no options to record. Rebooted DVR and reinstalled app.
Spectrum TV APP 1/5
The app will not work for me and I do have an Apple iPhone. It just won’t bring up anything for me to see. Just says to try back later and when I do it tells me the same thing all over again. It needs to be fixed so the people like me that are disabled and stuck in a room with no tv can use it and not have to miss their favorite shows.
Doesn't work 1/5
By ... ????
App doesn't work.
DVR controls stopped working 1/5
I am not able to use any functions under DVR. It gives error code. I’ve deleted and reinstalled app, rebooted DVR. Nothing has worked!
Roku Update interface buggy and generally disappointing 2/5
Roku Update interface buggy and generally disappointing.
Is Ok 4/5
Can ya’ll please add support for more TV’s and Playstation?, Thanks.
Wort internet ever. 1/5
Internet goes down all day long... don’t know if is same or worse than DirecTV.
Buggy on Apple TV 1/5
Screen freezes or just goes completely black with sound still playing. Only fix at this point is a complete system restart. Repeats same again after watching for a while. Seems like every update makes it more unreliable.
Not consistent 2/5
It would be better if it were consistent. Spectrum internet is spotty at best.
Chromecast Support! 4/5
Great app can be made so much more useful with chromecast support! This is coming from an ios user! Get with it Spectrum!
Problems with video 1/5
While the audio plays well, often the video freezes on a frame, remains stuck or goes blank altogether. Yet the audio continues. It is like listening to the radio instead of watching TV.
Still there? Newest update problem 3/5
Still there? Interact with your remote message will not go away on newest update.
Love it!! 5/5
Thank goodness for my spectrum act during this shelter in place time. I carry around my iPad and watch it all day just for company. It’s nice to be able to count on my cable tv.
Thank you Spectrum employees you are essential to the housebound families 😊
Will not stream to appletv. App repaired and it’s great now 5/5
By Hal Littlejohn
The app works great on iPhones and iPads but will not stream to appletv using airplay or mirroring. I have the 2nd gen appletv and am not able to stream as of very recently, this past week. It was fine prior to to this.
App was fixed and it’s working perfectly again. Thank you team!
Blank screen 1/5
I can’t even get my app to work. I downloaded it and I’ve gotten a blank blue screen ever since ... thanks 🤷🏻♀️
So unreliable. 1/5
The app freezes, loses audio, or drops many times daily.
In addition, the person who signed us up got our requested channels wrong and your staff refused to change them to the proper channels.
I am often driven to laughter (at your expense) when I see commercials touting your reliability and customer service.
It’s pretty great being a monopoly, huh?
Someday, you’ll have to compete on a level playing field and we will remember how we were treated.
Saves my life 5/5
Spectrum’s ability to use anywhere I am saves my life! On demand for my favorite shows while on my elliptical every morning...keeps me exercising!!
You are fantastic 😀
Cloud DVR Bug 4/5
Spectrum app works great on iOS, but needs improvement of Apple TV!
I would have given 5 stars if it was not for one annoying bug we found with the cloud DVR feature. Fast forwarding commercials is used quite often on Cloud DVR.
When you fast forward on a recorded show the first time (click fast forward then play) it plays where you stopped. But when you fast forward again and click play, the recording starts from the beginning. You then have to exit the recording and click resume, and it will play from where you left off. We confirmed this bug is consistent across recordings.
If the app developer is reading this, please fix in the next update!! Would happy to revise to 5 stars if the bug is fixed. We have a Apple 4th generation TV.
Constant freezing 2/5
By Village Brook
This was a stellar app until a few weeks ago. Now it has become painful to use because it freezes every 5-10 seconds. Too bad
