I live with three other roommates the account is under my name, I am only sharing the internet nothing more thinking of creating a separate network for them too. Question is on the roku or apple tv app you can watch without signing in and using spectrum home network is their way to block this?

    Hi again @tbluhpsillydq87!

    Only those with your username or password, or ability to connect to your home network will be able to access the Spectrum TV app with your account. You can set parental controls to block purchases or viewing channels with a pin.

    That's what I was afraid of. they can connect to my home network we all share the internet but the TV and all Spectrum services are under my name. I only granted them internet. What if I blocked access to using the app and just ordered cable bpxes/dvr?

    Even with a package that has regular cable boxes you can still use the app. The only way to block access would be with the parental controls.

    I have parent controls but that means I would need to block each and every channel.

    You could remove all allowed TV and movie ratings which should block all channels.
