The streaming revolution is reshaping the landscape of home entertainment. Robust connectivity is crucial, especially considering that 93% of American adults use the internet. Spectrum leads this transformation with high-speed internet and diverse content offerings.
The New Era of Home Entertainment
We have entered an unprecedented era where our entertainment needs and preferences are shifting. Streaming has become integral, providing access to unlimited on-demand content. Spectrum recognized this early on and has focused on enabling seamless streaming through investments in infrastructure and service capabilities.
You can access over 200 channels through Spectrum TV Packages depending on your package from live sports like NFL RedZone and exclusive cable networks like HBO and Showtime to your favorite broadcast stations and regional sports networks. Spectrum TV also seamlessly incorporates third-party streaming apps like Netflix, Prime Video, YouTube and more by simply logging in through your set-top box.
When and how we consume entertainment has been transformed with mobile devices and smart TVs. Streaming apps enable enjoying video content anywhere, anytime – whether catching up on the latest episode on your morning commute or binging a new series over the weekend. Modern smart TV software even blends streaming services and live cable TV into unified interfaces for effortless access.
Spectrum identified these shifts even in the early 2010s and invested in advanced fiber infrastructure as well as customer-focused service capabilities to unlock the complete potential of streaming. Today, Spectrum’s fiber-rich network powers ultra-fast internet, delivering smooth streaming complemented by a stellar channel lineup on Spectrum TV, featuring hit movies, popular shows, live sports, and more.
Spectrum’s High-Speed Internet: A Gateway to Limitless Streaming
With three-quarters of American adults now having broadband internet at home, the quality of our connectivity impacts streaming experiences. FCC defines broadband speeds as 25mbps download/3mbps. Spectrum offers lightning-fast internet with speeds up to 1 Gbps enabled by state-of-the-art network technology and extensive fiber optic infrastructure.
Such robust bandwidth unlocks the full potential of your streaming devices. For instance, a household subscribed to many streaming platforms like Netflix, Hulu, Disney+ and more can enjoy 4K and even 8K streaming across many screens. Gamers can immerse themselves without lags or interruptions. Smart home devices can also interconnect and operate with minimal latency.
Spectrum’s ultra-high-speed internet removes all limitations, creating a gateway to limitless streaming for all your entertainment needs.

Spectrum TV: A Diverse and Rich Entertainment Hub
The true power lies in combining Spectrum’s ultra-fast internet and the robust channel lineup of Spectrum TV. With a full gigabit per second of bandwidth enabled by Spectrum Internet, you can stream 4K or 8K content reliably from Spectrum On Demand while also running multiple other streaming and smart home applications without sacrificing performance.
Spectrum TV also seamlessly integrates access to your favorite third-party streaming apps within one interface. Switching between a season of Stranger Things on Netflix to last night’s sports highlights on YouTube TV or Prime Video is as simple as changing channels.
This frictionless access to virtually endless entertainment options demonstrates the unmatched synergies of bundling Spectrum Internet and TV.
