Even more (edited) for those of us on Spectrum TV Stream. We don't have the option to watch them thru a hardwire connection. Only thru the Spectrum app or the pay channel apps. Since the pay channel apps won't log in because the Spectrum server says that we don't currently subscribe to these channels, we are completely cut off.
The Roku app has been consistently unreliable. I've used it for about a year now, and found it so unreliable that it's not a viable replacement for Spectrum's rental boxes. I actually think Spectrum makes this app shoddy on purpose so people will rent boxes. I have 2 bedroom TVs that use the Spectrum Roku app as their sole access to cable TV. The more critical TVs are on rental boxes from Spectrum.
Good luck with that. I was promised one for this issue - it never materalized.
