I can tell you that you cannot use the "app" to watch SpectrumTV Programming unless you are behind an authorized TWC/Spectrum cable modem that is somehow attached to your TWC/Spectrum account.

 

Read the fine print in the usage agreement for the app.  It read, if memory serves me correctly, that, "That a subscription to Standard Internet (or better) is required to use this app to watch programming."

 

I've taken my Roku while on travel, and attempted to use the "app" to watch TV programming while on the road.  After logging in, an error message was displayed that advised me I needed to be connected to a router / modem that was authorized by TWC for my account.  (I was even connecting on a Time Warner Cable system....)

 

So no, I do not believe you can do this.  If this was possible, every Tom, **bleep**, and Harry would be handing out Rokus to their extended family and everyone would be sharing video programming all over town...

 

Let me ask you, if you don't have internet at home wtih TWC, who do you use for internet at home?
