Recently, I bought the Spectrum TV Select Signature plan for $59.99 per month (for 12 months). With the plan, I got free access to the Spectrum TV app. Using my Spectrum TV Select Signature credentials, I can watch all the live TV channels and on-demand content using the Spectrum TV app. Instead of using the smartphone app, I have installed the Spectrum TV app on my Roku device to stream all the video content.
If you are a new Roku user with a Spectrum TV plan, this guide will help you to get the app on your Roku device. Here, I have explained how to install, use, and update the Spectrum TV app on Roku streaming devices and Roku TVs.
