Annoying Spectrum app

Why does the app ask you if you want to continue with Spectrum after about 3-4 hrs of watching?
Always at a crucial time in show or movie and if you don't hurry to push continue...you have to sign in all over again..dumb!
If I didn't want to continue watching, I wouldn't. I'd change the channel to another app. Please get rid of this annoying issue on app!!

    The Spectrum streaming app needs to verify that someone is there watching the on-demand feed, which eats up lots of bandwidth compared to a standard cable TV channel assignment.  If nobody responds to the prompt, the programming server terminates the connection and makes the  bandwidth available to other streaming or on-demand viewers.

    This feature is present on most every single streaming service to prevent wasted bandwidth usage...Netflix, Prime, Hulu, Youtube, Sling, etc. all do it.
