Help & troubleshooting for channels on your Roku device, including adding/removing channels, logging in to, authenticating, or activating a channel, channel-specific playback issues, assistance contacting channel publishers to report issues, and adjusting channel-specific settings.
Did Roku really get rid of the Spectrum app? I bought two for my dad so he had cable again and both Spectrum and Roku claim that Roku devices can be used with the spectrum app. Did they really drop this with no documentation or publication of it whatsoever?? That’s absurd.
Thanks for nothing Roku and Spectrum. I bought the **bleep** Roku so I could watch Spectrum in my basement in addition to the other channels you offer on Roku. My Spectrum account says “despite our best efforts, Roku will not continue our agreement to allow users to access the spectrum app through Roku“. Greedy bastards, all of you!
I have HBO via Spectrum and have been watching Watchmen series last two nights. I go to search on Roku Stick home page and type in Watchmen and Spectrum comes up as choice and labeled included then I'm good to go.
3rd day Spectrum doesn't come up as a choice and can't log onto HBO directly. I go through Spectrum App and can find it but it immediately locks up and kicks me back to home page.
Why did I lose Spectrum as option when searching for this?
You would have to ask Spectrum. Roku does not create or support channels for 3rd party providers. Spectrum has sole control over how their channel works on Roku devices. It sounds like they pushed an update out that broke something. That's something they need to know.

I own a ROKU ULTRA and use the Spectrum TV App almost exclusively. Why would Roku do away with this App? If you use spectrum cable as your Wifi for Roku, its the only way to watch TV channels. So now I have to buy a competitors streaming device that includes Spectrum TV and ditch my $99 Roku Ultra?
