How does spectrumtv.com know you're on your home network?

So my brother has Spectrum Internet and Cable, with the online spectrum tv streaming. I have Spectrum Internet at my house. If I use his spectrumtv login on my home network, would it still say i'm away from home and not give access to all the availabe channels?

        Yup, it's away from his house

you might get 10 channels, no locals...

You would not be able to access your full subscription package. The app authenticates via the modem that is tied to the account.

" If I use his spectrumtv login on my home"

 

And thus the reason we ALL cannot watch much away from home...
