How to connect Spectrum.tv to an LG Smart TV?

It seems spectrum tv only works with Samsung, which I don't have. Is there some sort of device I can use to connect it? Even a cable between my laptop and the TV won't work. I don't know what all the roku, firestick, apple tv things do...

At this time we only have our app available for Samsung smart TVs. There is no information at this time as to if we plan to expand to other smart TVs.

Buy a roku. I recommend one that you can connect via Ethernet (instead of WiFi). It will do spectrum as well as other streaming services. It will connect to your tv via hdmi.

Thank you! A friend had suggested Apple TV, but I don't want to spend that kind of money. I'll investigate Roku.

You are welcome.  Be advised, you will need to be both a video subscriber and internet subscriber to Spectrum to use the Spectrum Streaming Channel on Roku...  (The Roku essentially replaces a cable box).

Also be advised that the Spectrum TV app is not available on Apple TV (or Fire TV or any other streaming device), only Roku devices. It's available on Xbox One if you go that route.

Beware...the app is not available on all Samsung Smart tvs. It seems that 2017 models don't have it available.
