How do you download the Spectrum TV Ap on an LG Smart TV?

I cannot find a way to add ap's in LG Content.  If I try the webbrowser it takes forever to load any web address and I cannot get there.  I need to do this today as tomorrow Feb 13 Spectrum goes digital.  If you have step by step instructions that would be great.  Thanks!

    The Spectrum TV app is only supported on select Samsung smart tvs. I would suggest getting a Roku device to hook up to your LG tv, unless you have an Xbox One which also supports the app.

    Thank you for the quick reply.  Makes sense why I cannot download it.  Would have been nice if the attendant at the Spectrum store told me this rather that jsut say download the ap.

    Agreed...their training is sometimes lacking a bit.

    the other issue is that you should be using an ethernet connection rather than wireless. The TV's respond a lot faster, on some, you can download an android ap that allows the spectrum one to work.  And some channels allow watching if you have a twc/spectrum id, like the NBC olympics one.

    You would have only had a few basic cable channels and may get more with an antenna on your set... What's your zip code?
