Spectrum TV overview

Spectrum TV service shares availability with Spectrum internet, covering more than a third of U.S. households across 42 states. It’s true “cable” TV, in that it uses coaxial cables to deliver service, as opposed to a satellite or fiber-optic network.

If your address is serviceable for Spectrum TV, you’ll likely have three base packages to choose from, with the option to add smaller packs for a more customized channel lineup. Your service also comes with exclusive perks like free HD, access to on-demand viewing and the Spectrum TV app, no term agreements and a buyout from your current provider contract.
