Freeze up special 1/5
Constant freeze ups. More useless than any published app should be. Only reason we have it is lack of options in our area. It's only useful as a TV guide to see what is playing without having to use the ridiculous Spectrum guide on the TV.
It’s not working properly 1/5
By antoine codio
I tryed watching a movie but it keeps blacking out and going back to home screen
Functionally Inconsistent 1/5
I absolutely hate this app. It is constantly and inconsistently non-functional. I use it everyday and inevitably it will stop working. I constantly receive channel unavailable messages (while I’m viewing a program) to the receiving no programming at all like tonight since 10pm. Still not working. The programming updates are slow even when switching to the useless tv guide to determine what is currently showing which is always 3 plus hours behind. I have failed to notice any improvements. Why have an app if you can’t consistently execute on delivery? When it is functional, it works great which is rare and when it doesn’t which is always at the worst time it is annoying and frustrating. I wish i could charge you for the times it doesn’t.
When I had Time Warner and had the App, I was able to select record from my phone wherever I was if I forgot. Also, I was able to watch my recordings from my phone and see what I have recorded. Spectrum have that on the app, but doesn’t work for nothing, I have called tech service and their answer to me is that they are working on it and it’s been a year. I’ve been thinking of canceling.
New app allows login without password 2/5
I’m shocked and appalled to see that the new version of this app has an option to log in to your DVR Manager whenever you’re connected to your home Internet service without a password. Unfortunately, this also means your guest network and guest "users" now have access to see and potentially delete anything on your DVR.
And worst of all, there appears to be no way to disable this in your account settings. This is a security vulnerability by design. I implore Spectrum to reconsider this, or at least make it opt-in by default for security’s sake.
Updated: A recent change also limits your remote DVR access to the last 50 recordings. It does not say so anywhere, but if you count you’ll see everything after 50 is silently missing.
Fine app 4/5
Let's you see enough shows but doesn't have to many channels without home WiFi. But it also let's u search shows to watch on demand free
Not what I expected 1/5
I was told that with the app I would be able to watch my shows anywhere. But a lot of the channels require u to be connected to the house wifi then what is the pint of the app.
New update freezes continually 1/5
Next time fix bugs rather than make bugs. Impossible to watch when it freezes every 2 minutes or so. Ughh!
The only bad thing is that you only use it when you’re on your home connection ugg😒 but it is. Good
Helps me to pass the day really well
Disappointed customer. 1/5
When it was TWC running it, it was a good app. I’ve been a customer since 1992 through all the corporate take overs, and I have to say It is now the worst app I have downloaded. It has so many issues just like their cable tv on demand. Why don’t they get good IT people to fix this. Used all the time before but now stream Netflix or Amazon more than Spectrum. Updates don’t seem to fix everything.
Rip Off 1/5
By Cypress Hammock
I pay for Spectrum and especially NESN but when I’m not on my home Spectrum WiFi I can not watch the service. This is a rip off and should be corrected or give me a refund for false advertising. Why should I pay twice? More than half the channels are blocked. No wonder cable companies get a bad rap. You increase cost for services and then you do not deliver. I can’t wait to cut the cord with cable.
Needs tweaking 3/5
The full screen mode picture is freezing while the audio keeps going. Decreasing to preview mode unfreezes the video. Please fix!
Says I’m not connected to WiFi 1/5
By Alvaro sss
Says I’m not connected to WiFi and I am. Worst app ever
High Cable bills and poor service 1/5
If this is app is ‘mobile’ why tether the customer to their home. Customers should be able to watch their DVR’s anwhere - that the definition of ‘mobile’ ! Give it up Specturm!
Stable update but with a bug 4/5
I was forced to update the app today (what other app gives you no choice?) and this version seems more stable than most previous ones and does a better job of keeping the audio synced with the video signal. It pauses for a second while the video catches up. At least that’s what it appears to be doing. But the version has an annoying bug.... Closed Captioning is on by default and you have to turn it off each time you change the channel. It gets tedious very fast. Let’s hope they fix it soon.
Does not support enough devices. 1/5
Would be a good app if it had Fire Stick and /or Chromecast support. It’s like your forcing people to buy a one of the Roku products.
Last update ruined app 1/5
Worked fine before last update. Afterward, it freezes every three minutes requiring quit restart. Total fail.
Do you have testers? At all?
Doesn’t Load 1/5
Never had an app tjat took as long to load than this one. Half the time, it doesn’t work and can only watch a fraction, not even half the channels I want to watch. You want us to use this app, yet make it so we get hardly any channels; what gives? Needs mich improvement.
Your app is now broken because of the update 1/5
Your app now prevents screenshots from being taken and also causes a runtime error in Cocoa if anyone tries to screen record. I understand why you would prevent screen recording(which you were already doing in previous versions)but it shouldn’t cause a runtime error. Also, you force people to update in order to use your service yet you make no mention of blocking screenshots in the update. This is extremely deceptive. I say your app is broken because it is, no app should cause a runtime error and no user should be forced to download a broken app under false release notes..
So Many Updates...And Yet 1/5
...still ZERO integration between the Spectrum TV iPhone app and the Humax-210 DVR
At this point, I presume Spectrum will NEVER resolve this issue 😡😡😡
I really hate this app on my Samsung Smart TV. Keeps freezing, constantly disconnects from my WiFi, bad picture quality. The list goes on...
Spectrum app 1/5
I pay $160 a month for cable and I downloaded the spectrum app and now I don’t get the channels that I wanted to see like NBC sports sports channels or the channels that we all want to see when we are away from home but the app does not let us have those channels this in my opinion is a travesty and should be addressed immediately
Spectrum Has The Goods 5/5
By Roscoe the Boscoe
Spectrum has all the programming and features we need. Service is quite reliable. We enjoy it immensely. Thanks!
Worst coding ever. 1/5
The app is fundamentally flawed from the foundation code up. Each and every update swaps or even compounds bugs. Only app Ive ever had that requires regular uninstall/ reinstall to maybe partially work for a few days. 3.9 stars? LOL.
Needs to work constantly 3/5
Sometimes the app doesn't start. Occasionally it doesn't continue playback. I have to close the app and reopen it, losing some potentially valuable seconds of playback. The video quality tends to dip, too.
Fox Noise But Nothing Else 1/5
Right-wing propaganda is available to view on the app without being connected to Spectrum internet service, but no other cable news stations are offered. Pathetic!
Bring DVR Management Back 1/5
What happened to the option of managing your DVR through the app? It was a really useful feature and one of the only reasons I don’t used this app...
A few things to improve 1/5
By cavalier baller
1. Add ESPN’s SportsCenter and First Take to the sports filter on the app (they are currently both under the genre of news/weather). 2. Have a 15-10sec rewind button for on demand content instead of a 30sec rewind button.
It could be much better... 2/5
By Mili Arroyo
I had the app in my current location and device for about a year now, it has not been perfect all this time but pretty good, until the last few weeks. Probably since the last update, which is what it usually happens. It is almost impossible to use the "Guide". I use it every day to check on what is on for the day, it is much easier than to do it at the TV, the "search", everything is easier in the iPad. So you have a very frustrated user. Please do something!
Worst app development team 1/5
I never had an issue with the time warner app denying services due to “connect to home network”. I could happily watch the cable services I pay for on my devices while using my home WiFi provided by spectrum with their equipment. Since the rebranding of time Warner and spectrum releasing their own app I have had nothing but issues trying to watch any of my extended cable service channels. Customer support has to say the issue is being worked on and it’s difficult to fault the person on the other end of the phone. This is really unsatisfactory. If Verizon would offer their fiber services where I currently live I would drop spectrum no matter the cost. Charge me an outrageous price for better service and I would pay it.
This app always has issues 1/5
This could be great app but it has to many glitches and currently isn’t working at all for me. I have uninstalled and reinstalled on my tablet 3 times. I’m so over it.
Functional but not great 3/5
Having the option to download shows would be good, Dish allows for this. Also, if you stop watching a show, it restarts to the beginning of the show if you come back to it. Also, can only watch certain channels when not at home, don't get the full range.
More episodes 3/5
Wish there was all the episodes to a series on some shows . Sometimes it’s missing half the seasons or every other episode on some shows other than that spectrum stream is awesome I enjoy having it on lunch break and any other time away from home
Sometimes even works 2/5
No way this app gets 3.9 stars. Keep getting low res picture and buffering even though all other apps work great. If you’re still clinging to your old tube type tv then you’re golden. Otherwise it is frustrating and unwatchable at times. Gave them every chance to fix it over the last few weeks. Time to move on to a respectable TV streaming service.
Worst streaming app ever 1/5
This is the worst streaming app I have ever used. In the middle of a 120-sec commercial break, if I stop to read a text, the commercial break will start over. Again and again. Same if my screen times out. And goes back to the beginning everytime. I spend 75% of my time rewatching commercials. This app is a nightmare.
terrible on ipad 1/5
ipad pro 11, latest os
do you even test your software?
i’m an ex-software engineer, and i would fire anyone who released this crap.
try to scroll to tomorrow’s guide listing: it automatically scrolls back to current day/time.
get a list of pending recordings on home dvr, list looks good. then delete on pending recording, and all the other pending recordings disappear.
what a terrible product from a terrible company, who is the only cable option in my neighborhood. and has raised my rates 30% in a year.
It’s better than paying 7.80 a month for a box! 5/5
I haven’t had any complaints so far. It also helps with the bulkiness of the box. The only thing is, if you loose internet you loose tv as well.
Not important 3/5
By bossy zjay
Can we just talk about how Miley is starring at adam💀💀🙈
Worst than two 1/5
Horrible app don’t waste you time!
Not Working at all 1/5
Since Thursday (07/11/19) the Spectrum TV App stopped working on my iPhone, Mini iPads, and ALL of my Roku devices. When I try to use the Spectrum TV App on my iPhone and Mini IPads I get the following message: “Check Connection, We’re sorry, something didn’t work quite right. Please check your internet connection and try again. Reference Code: IFE-1004”. When I try using the Spectrum TV App under Roku, I get the following message: “We’re sorry, we’re having trouble loading Spectrum TV App. Please wait a few moments and try again”. My internet/WiFi connection is perfectly fine because my computer is running good, all my Apps on my iPhone and Mini iPads besides the Spectrum TV App work just fine, they all connect with no problem. My Roku works great, Roku needs internet/WiFi to work, all my Apps under my Roku devices (FOXnews, HULU, Pluto TV, Netflix, etc.) work perfectly!...I already did software updates on ALL devices and nothing!! Something is definitely wrong with the Spectrum TV App...PLEASE FIX ISSUE!!
So far all I can use in the app is the guide 2/5
Just started using the Spectrum TV App, and find it quite disappointing.
Can not access my DVR even though my receiver is there when I check for “devices” under settings, even when I am at the address with the DVR. But being able to access when away from home is essential.
Also was told I’d be able to watch TV on the go, but when I attempt that away from the address with the DVR I get a message saying I can only access those if I am connected to my Spectrum internet. If I were connected to my Spectrum internet there would be no reason to want to watch TV on the go.
Previously had ATT Uverse, and I could do all those things via the app on my phone not matter where I happened to be at the time.
I expect more from Spectrum.
It’s a good app for watching movies and shows 4/5
I juts think that all shows and movies should be available when away from the home internet and at the moment I’m having trouble with watching on demand shows
No Chromecaste Support on iOS App 3/5
Must watch in Chrome browser and caste browser to screen instead of straight from app which has lower screen quality and sound only through the iOS device. Aggravating and inconvenient.
Pretty useless 2/5
The value of the app in my case is to allow me to access Spectrum provided content, and my DVR when I am away from home. Rarely can I watch the programming I am interest in when I travel. And to access my DVR I have to be connected to my own home WiFi system. Totally defeats the purpose.
Y U NO SUPPORT VPN
The guide change!!! 1/5
This last update when you scroll through the guide and check the details on a program, when you go back it goes all the way back to the beginning of the guide and you have to start all over again.
This has to be changed back or do you’s just do this to aggravate people?
One Star because of the guide!!!
DVR Issues 2/5
This app can do everything except access my DVR. I repeatedly receive an error message when trying to view my DVR through my tablet and phone, with no sign of getting in. When I spoke to the representative via phone, they told me that this was an ongoing technical issue that was to be resolved soon. This was six months ago. No changes have been made. It makes me wonder why I bother paying for DVR services at all if I can only access it from the box directly. It’s easier to stream or watch things via On Demand.
Great when it works 1/5
The app suddenly stopped working on both my iPads, displays a picture of a kite and never loads. Just when it can’t be any worse then it does. Deleted, will try again in a week
