Spectrum is running a very aggressive ad campaign that you can watch Spectrum TV on all devices i.e. tablets, phones, computers, roku smart tv. Not so for me since 10am this morning and this has happened several times this month. My other streaming apps (Netflix, Amazon Video) work great and I get them through Spectrum internet. You would think Spectrum would make sure their app was as reliable.
I agree that they should have the resources to make the app completely reliable. Although I've never personally had an issue, all of the reports of the app servers choking seem to make it a bad choice for your primary tv. I only use it for my phone and Roku devices in a guest bedroom and the garage.
