Spectrum box

Very new at this.  I have Roku Streaming Stick + and a subscription to Spectrum.  A worker at Spectrum said if I use Roku, I have to keep one Spectrum box in the house or the Roku won't work.  I don't believe that is accurate, and would like to go all Roku and get rid of the boxes and box rental.  Do I have to keep a Spectrum box?

Re: Spectrum box


Thanks for the inquiry.

For clarification, a Roku device will not replace the cable box provider by Spectrum. However, you can install the Spectrum channel (app) on a Roku device and access the content in that channel with your Spectrum TV subscription.
