Spectrum App Installation?

Just installed a new Roku, and it was set up with the Spectrum "channel."  But, I can't find the Spectrum App or launch the Spectrum Guide so we can browse those channles.  Nor do I see any way to download an app from Google Play or even access Google Play from the Roku interface.  Suggestions?
