Spectrum App availability on Google TV

edited September 7 in Spectrum TV App Feedback for Other Devices Aug 16, 2022

I just purchased a new sony tv equipped with google tv. When I go to the google play store it says the Spectrum app is not available for google tv. I understand that I can use chromecast to stream from my phone to the tv, but I don't want to depend on the phone to stream content to the tv. Why is the spectrum app not available on google play store yet for TVs with google TV? Any plans for making it available soon?

    Good morning @BellaAudio and great question! We do not have information on if and when the app would be able to install on Google TV's. Different vendors have different agreements on where the app is available where. I have no idea if this is in the same ballpark but it would surprise me if for whatever reason Google wanted to promote their own TV streaming service for their TVs and not offer the Spectrum TV app for a time. Again, that, at best, is an educated guess. It wouldn't surprise me if they give that platform priority on Google TV's. Especially if there is a free trial incentive for buying such a TV. another example is we have an app version for some Amazon devices but not all.

    I wish I had more information but I would be glad to pass along your feedback. Visit this page from time to time to see if any new devices are available to stream with.

    Randy
