Not too good 1/5
I want to use it, but it never seems to work. Trying for the last time to reinstall and that is it.
This should be against the law 1/5
By Misty St Pierre
It’s ridiculous how much we pay for this cable service and they can’t even provide us with a functioning app. Obviously Spectrum does not care and has no intention of improving their - why should they? We’re the suckers emptying our wallets.
No Ondemamd 1/5
Hate to say I miss Xfinity with there issues, but Spectrum’s app and web based user interface are extremely poor. On multiple occasions spread through multiple days I’ve either A) started a movie to only have it buffer and time out or B) be almost done with a movie to constantly get the “unable to play try again” notice. Connection is good. I’m writing this review over the same WiFi. While I watch my Mac saying loading the movie which I clicked on at the start of the movie. Never had these issues with Xfinity. Update: can’t even resume the programs on a TV. Adding to this review: the on demand section isn’t really on demand. It’s more maybe on demand. Looking at movies on demand and constantly and you click on a movie and asks you if you want to record. Record is not on demand.
Spotty On Demand 1/5
The on demand portion is frustratingly spotty. Fine.....when it works.
Latest Update 1/5
This app was only working for two of our three TV’s. I thought it was because of the latest update. After rebooting the box two times, it is now working.
Crashing issues 1/5
App crashes even more now since the update to fix the “occasional” crashes from before. It was way better like 2 or 3 updates ago. It’s almost like they tried to do too much with what was already working quite fine. Rule #1 of updates. Updates shouldn’t downgrade performance.
It’s cool free basically a portable tv you don’t have to log in just watchN go
At best functional, at worst irrelevant 2/5
Not a day goes by without receiving the "unable to play" message. Fix this bug or improve the app. Very frustrating. Not convinced writing a review will change anything. It likely ends up somewhere between animated limbo and the abyss.
This app hasn’t worked consistently for the last two weeks. The most inconsistent, non-functional. Constant unable to play, unable to watch, watch another channel and multiple sign ins in the middle of watching a show when it does work.
App problems 1/5
By ????? Wt..
This app has really gone down hill ever since spectrum took over. The guide tell you something is on, you check, and something completely different is on. Too bad!
App crashes when trying to open or load.
If I could rate this ZERO stars, I would. This app is absolutely garbage! Spectrum should fire the entire development team. Used to have Verizon FIOS, but moved to an area that doesn’t offer FIOS and Spectrum is the only game in town. While FIOS wasn’t excellent, it was FAR FAR better than this POC. The app crashes constantly. You can’t:
- Stream DVR recorded program on the app, only can watch on TV
- There is no “LAST” button to toggle between 2 stations.
- The app only works with ROKU on smart tv’s...not Apple TV
- The app constantly freezes on Smart TV (could be the lousy Spectrum Internet)
-You can’t filter the channel guide to “subscribed only”
-Scheduling a recording on the app NEVER EVER works!
If you have an option other than Spectrum...choose it.THE WORST!
Trash... Worst streaming app I have on my phone or Xbox one X 1/5
I've never seen a streaming app so bad in my life... Even under your Wi-Fi 100mbs you're buffering from start to finish? So so sooooooo disappointed.
Horrible App 1/5
This is the most unreliable application I have ever used. It fails to load and says to check the internet connection (Spectrum internet) every other app works but this one doesn’t. Says it can’t record a show come back later. Check on the tv to come back later to find it really did set the recording. Waste of time! Try to access a recording and it says it is unavailable at this time. Very frustrating to use. Hate, hate hate it.
Rarely works shouldn’t advertise as a feature 1/5
Eeny Meeny Miny Mo - will the Spectrum TV app work yes or no? When you have such little time to relax and enjoy your shows and can’t rely on your service, it seems illegal to even be charged for it. WiFi is finicky, but the app is extremely unreliable. I try it often throughout the day, 7 x a week and I am probably able to find it functioning in full capacity about 20% of the time. That’s 2 times out of every 10 attempts is successful.
Biggest Problem 2/5
By Lord Vitality
The main issue I have with the Spectrum TV app is its inability to open to the correct time to view what is currently on TV. Upon launching the app the current programs on air is not accurate. Time is usually 2-3 hours behind schedule.
Turns on by itself 2/5
By fix this haunted app
Recently it turns on by itself. What’s going on?! Please fix
Works 1/2 the time 2/5
By charter app review
When it does work it freezes up. Just updated yesterday and doesn’t work at all now.
Rarely works 1/5
Error message when trying to view DVR manager. Same problem on this device and ever decide I have that runs Spectrum App.
This is not an App! 1/5
By John Oshodi
What’s the point here? Want to watch TV, go home where your set top box is. That’s what I’m from this “App”.
Very problematic 1/5
Constant problems when trying to use to record, rarely able to successfully execute
App playing on its own 2/5
After the most current update, all devices are playing TV when we return home.
Too underdeveloped 2/5
By Ep gump
1. Buffering too much..and it’s not my router. YouTube and Netflix works just fine. But this app hiccups too much.
2. Even though it shows what’s playing on each channel while you’re watching...which is good, but you can’t see the program info, such as which episode, unless you swich off live tv...which is bad.
3. Needs to be able to pause and rewind live tv, especially if you have it as part of your cable subscription.
App Crashing 1/5
App keeps crashing and telling me it doesn’t support VPN connect. VPN isn’t even turned on on the device! Fix it.
The one channel I want to watch 1/5
You can only watch certain channels on the app. You lose even more channels if you try to actually leave your house and watch. I literally just want to go into a different room and watch tv while I eat and I can’t watch because for some reason they won’t play that station on the app. It makes even less sense because it was available for like a week and then it was gone again
literally its the worst 1/5
The worst possible thing that can happen is of regular occurence in this company. They log you out and then claim you got the wrong password when you try to get back in. Think about the level of incompetence it takes for a company to erase or reset the passwords of users. Idk why im asking for too much when i just want to have some sort of dependability with my cable tv.
I just found out that they made it literally impossible to screen cast this app on anything even on chrome browsers on your pc! what a terrible business decision, since now nobody can watch their channel lineup on a tv outside their home even if its that limited selection of channels. some channels have their own websites/apps that will work with spectrum login and you can stream live that way, so why is this not possible through spectrum app???? As for On Demand I have just 3 words for you: forget about it. Not only does it not even remotely work in the mobile app, their set top box cant even find you a SINGLE FREE CONTENT!!!! seriously their searches and menu's are so messed up that it'll just give you a list 'a-z' and no matter what content you selection it says you have to purchase it! What a complete scam! In the commercials for this app they claim that you can watch your DVR content with it. WRONG AGAIN!!! the set-top-box dvr doesnt even register with the app, so whatever content it has has no way of being sent to your mobile device even over the Home wifi. The only thing that works is just one specific user case; Being at home and watching live tv. So if the tv is being use by someone else you still have options, even then it'll randomly log you out, pester you with "are you still watching?" popups, or disconnect from random "errors" while watching your shows but never during the commercials, and only on the best shows that you enjoy most.
Still junk 1/5
Extraordinary how they put out an app for users’ “convenience,” and still manage to screw it up every time. I get a lot of “oops” messages these days, “try again later.” Sometimes...it likes to be upside down...all the time. Sometimes it doesn’t like the password I’ve been using...whoops...for many years. Updated to the latest version...garbage. Now it doesn’t want to record. Sometimes It just refuses to open. It’s easy to be crappy when you’re the only game in town.
Limited access 1/5
I pay an arm and a leg for internet/cable services through Spectrum already so it would stand to reason that their app would provide the same access to the channels I’m already paying for, right? Nope! Only certain channels can be streamed on the app. For all the others it tells me I need to connect to my Spectrum WiFi. If I was home in order to do that then I wouldn’t need the app to watch my game in the first place! Useless...
Great when it works! 3/5
Have been loving this app and using it all the time but it's been very buggy since last major update. Hope they fix it soon.
Still way too often that the DVR portion just stops working for days on end! FIX THIS PLEASE!!!
Goes haywire if minimized. Bogus VPN warnings. 1/5
If i send this app to the background and bring it back up it completely goes haywire and seems to forget where it was, what channel it was on or even if the network is available. It also constantly halts and says i’m using a VPN and to disable it in my settings....which is impossible since It’s already disabled....so using this app is a day to day catch as catch can affair. It’s a shame because otherwise I really like it.
Bad app 1/5
Ever since Spectrum took over and changed app, I've had trouble setting DVR box to record. App says it's scheduled, DVR shows program is scheduled but when time to record, DCR shows its recording but there is nothing saved. This happens so much that I no longer trust the app or the DVR. Considering dropping tv and just streaming. Get your act together Spectrum!
Please update 1/5
Really needs to be updated! I had Xfinity before and it gave me right away types of genres and all the free movies. I didn’t have to worry about opening the info up to see if it worked or not. Spectrum you have to click on the movie or show and the ones without a key lock, and still wish for the best.
My app won’t load my DVR list! I have restarted and reloaded more times than I can count.
Very disappointed! 1/5
Constantly get an error and goes offline. Have to continually delete app and download again.Very annoying
I’ll give it 3 stars for the TV shows that you can watch. And that’s it’s in HD. But there’s one thing I’m wondering; WHY WOULD YOU NEED THIS APP INSIDE YOUR HOUSE IF YOU ALREADY HAVE A TV??!!!!!?? Please fix this by letting us watch anywhere, then I’ll possibly give 5 stars
It would be nice if I could set the DVR when I am not at home and forgot to record something. Having to be at home defeats the purpose of the app.
70% ads. 1/5
By Tom The busy bee book
I was watching a show on H&I when 3 ads came on. 5 minutes of show. Then 2 minutes of ads.
5 minutes of show.
5 minutes of ads.
3 seconds of show (not joking. 3 seconds.)
2 more ads then a new show.
The story never finished. Maybe last 30% was lost.
If this continues will delete it.
Bad update 1/5
Idk if Spectrum is even trying to fix this app. The IUC-9000 error has been a problem since as early as 2015 & maybe earlier for all I know. Does it really take 3 years to fix an app? This is the WORST app. Never works!!! Fix it!!
App starts playing on it’s own! 2/5
I was using it last night on my iPad and it started playing by itself when no one is touching it. The screen doesn’t light up, its locked but the sound turns on. I have to close the app so it will stop. I have two iPads and it happened to BOTH on different days so it’s not a fluke. I tried using the app support but it takes
You to a different website and it’s very kludgy at best to submit a app support request. Otherwise I do like the interface been able to go to the last three channels that you watch it’s the closest experience to a TV app. One thing I don’t like is not being able to see shows when you’re not in the subscription area. That can be troublesome at times.
I wish I could give this zero stars. The hourglass just spins and spins buffering even though we have their fastest internet. The channel guide doesn’t update. You have to close the app and reopen to see updated show list. A lot of the time I will be trying to watch a show and a pop up will appear and say service unavailable. In other words, this app is not worth your time.
New and improved - HAUNTED! 1/5
I’ve always relied on the Spectrum app for the kind of intermittent, endlessly frustrating experience that I’ve come to expect from my favorite cable monopoly. Now, with the latest update to this app, I’m tickled to be find that randomly throughout the day the audio from the last channel I watched will play through my device even when the app is closed. A charming new feature that lets me know that spectrum is always there for me, whether I want it there or not.
DVR Manager tab doesn’t work. 1/5
By One Life, One Love, One King
I keep getting an error message ICM-9000. So if I want to record something, I have to be home to do it. Please fix this, it’s been going on for a long time. I’ve already done the resetting of the iPhone and deleted and re-installed the app.
Poor App 1/5
This app will no longer load. It gives an error message every time it tries to load saying to check the internet connection. 😡My internet is connected fine. This app worked great until about a month ago now it no longer works. I’ve tried deleting and reinstalling it and it still does not work on any device. This app is a piece of garbage!!!
app keeps crashing 1/5
I was so excited to watch movies on the go but everytime I use on demand the app crashes everytime I click on demand. So basically I can only watch live stuff only :/ PLEASE fix the crashing please!
Needs Major Improvements 1/5
Every time I try to record I have issues of some sort. And it’s always that I have to do something. Reset my box, stay on hold, reinstall something, upgrade, etc.
Apple TV needs it! 3/5
By Jackie Amalia
I love the app but Apple TV needs to be added!
Needs Sportsnet LA on the go 1/5
The whole reason to switching to Spectrum was to watch the Dodgers and then having exclusivity to most games. Well.... there’s time where I am not home but still want to catch the game. I have MLB.tv but of course it shows blackout restrictions and the app won’t let me watch it unless I am home on my “home wi-fi.” Being in LA there is Spectrum networks EVERYWHERE!!! Why can’t it just let me watch it when I’m on one of those networks or why can’t they let MLB.tv authenticate me through my Spectrum login to let me watch the game?? I just want to watch the Dodgers on the go.
Channels constant disappearing 1/5
When I first downloaded this app I could get all the channels I pay for, in the last month more and more channels have disappeared, don’t spout off I your commercials I can watch tv anywhere on any device when it’s not true
Also I haven’t even had the service for a year and my bill has already increased
App crashes all the time 2/5
Just started using Spectrum and this App. When works(rarely), I like the features and functions.
90% of the time when I launch this App it crashes. Very frustrating.
Guide needs a fix 2/5
The Guide is a pain, it is always the furthest back about two hours of what it is now. I have tried to contact mytwc and have gotten nowhere.
Not on a VPN 1/5
By Fastest Banjo Eddie
App keeps quitting telling me it does not support a VPN. Tried reinstalling it and had the same issue. Terrible.
