In Portland Maine. I had almost every channel on expanded basic but no premium channels. Once they switched my account to Spectrum I lost more than half of the channels I had, I switch to themiddle tier to get some back but ended up with show/HBO/Max as well. I'd gladly get rid of these to have what I had before. I lost Boomerang which I and my kid love. I think some mindless person put these packages together.
I cannot emphasize enough. If you are a legacy TWC/BHN sub, and you are happy with your services, DO NOT SWITCH TO SPECTRUM! Many of the channels that were a part of TWC Varity Pass or Preferred TV are now ONLY a part of the Spectrum Gold Package. Worse there is no way, once on Spectrum billing, to go back to TWC/BHN billing or packages. Your legacy status when you switch is gone forever.
BigWolf, unfortunately, you will have to add Spectrum Gold to get your Boomerang, TV Land, and I think even Cartoon Network back. Review the channel line up if you switch by going to your area, typing in your zip code, and view line up by package before switching.
You are correct I would have to go with the Gold to do so. I've adjusted and found quite a few things on the premium channels we are enjoying.
You can get the channels in the Gold Tier WITHOUT the Premium Channels. In my area, this is listed as:
Spectrum TV Select (Expanded Basic TV Sercices).
Digi Tier 1
Digi Tier 2
I apologize for the frustration. From time to time we do make certain changes in the services that we offer. If you would like to reply with the channel impacted, we will certainly submit your feedback that this is a channel you would value having as an offering.

Cable boxes are overheating & channels become either static/pixelated or don't function at all. Can we have our boxes swapped for better units?
You shouldn't have any problems to replace them if they are having issues. How hot are the rooms with those cable boxes?
boxes must be in free air with 2-4" clear and not stacked on top of other equipment or in an EC cubby hole.
You may also have poor signal levels
Turning off Power Save works this way on my Guide:
Turn off Power Save:
1. Press the Settings key on the remote.
2. Scroll to the Timers menu.
3. Select Power Save Mode.
4. Press Select/OK button to set to Off.
The Spectrum App also runs on Rokus. Many of them are less than $50, but the Rokus with hard-wired ethernet ports are just under $100.
The app does live TV, plus some on-demand. I do not believe it supports PPV.
The Roku will work with any HDTV, and thus is more portable.
You will need to be a video subscriber and internet subscriber to use the App. It will only work (fully) on your home LAN.
Hello i called two times to figured out why all my DVR content was being deleted, my first call i was told that they were going to send new codes to my dvr and 3 days later all my programming was deleted i called again and i was told to change my password 2 weeks later all of my game of thrones were deleted it seems like someone got access to my account and they are still logged in with my old credentials recording and deleting my dvr content this is very frustrating because no one has access to my DVR in my house other than my self it's getting to the point where i no longer want dvr service 3 months with the same issue.
Replace the cable company DVR with a Tivo. Us fellow customers can't really help you here.
I am about done with spectrum, I go to entertainment on demand and select a free movie, for one you can't fast forward through them, which is fine because the commercials are short anyways, but if I pause the movie for more than five seconds and it starts me back at the beginning again!!! What is the point of having the option to watch the damned movie if I can't watch it!? About done with spectrum!!
You might have a signal or line issue, All On Demand Content has the ability to be resumed from where you paused for 24 hours from the time of ordering the movie. When you go to On Demand to resume your movie, you should see an "In Progress" indicator, with the ability to Resume or Restart. If you are still having this issue after 24 hours, please contact Spectrum. The fastest way is through Twitter. Register or log in to Twitter. You will need to follow the @Ask Spectrum Twitter account.
After following that account, you will need to send a Direct Message (DM) a private message with some account information and say that you can not resume On Demand movie content, and that movies are starting over automatically after being paused for more than five minutes. Lets give this 24 hours to see if it resolves on its own before Tweeting the Help team.
I assume you changed the aux button to be a second TV and tried Samsung tV codes and they didn't work. when you select aux, then hit the vol up/down, does the aux light blink? If not, you need to unlock the vol u/d from the tv and make it follow the last device pressed.
The correct solution and easiest is to Connect the soundbars hdmi to the tv's ARC hdmi port and configure the TV for ARC control on that port. The soundbar will then use the tv up/ down and mute controls that work the tv.
This has been coming for a LONG time. It happened on my system years ago. Analog signals are being removed to be replaced with digital signals in efforts to free up bandwidth for faster internet speeds. Encyption eliminates unauthorized viewing of channels, and allows the cable company to control your subscription from the head office instead of rolling a truck to install / remove filters. and/or disconnect you. It also prevents people from running an extra cable over to their neighbors house.
The cable company (and the content owners) will never sign up for having their HD digital content available in your home unencrypted. And the "outside" box you describe would essentially be a head end for a hotel-type TV system - and they aren't cheap.
Almost every other payTV provider, included DBS Satellite, requires rented equipment to watch video programming on each TV. TWC was one of the last hold-outs.
The cost of a STB in a Spectrum Plan is $4.99 / month. If you are a legacy TWC subscriber, yes, it's $11.75 / mo. The STB remotes can be programmed to control the power and volume on your TV's. Be aware, if you migrate to Spectrum pricing, your channel lineup will change, and you may got get all teh channels you are currently getting w/o adding some Digi-Tiers.
You have some options, though:
1. If you are also an internet customer, you can buy and install Rokus, which are much smaller than STB's and can be powered by USB. They typically run under $50. It's a one-time cost. They are the size of a deck of cards, and the Roku Streaming Stick actually plugs directly into the HDMI port behind your TV - you won't even see it. They take the place of the box, and will pay for themselves rather quickly.
2. You can disconnect your extra sets, and put up an antenna to get OTA Stations on those sets. I hope you have home-run COAX to a single location somewhere in the house, and not splitters everywhere.
3. A Tivo can be used to replace a STB, but you will need to pay Tivo for Guide Data, unless it has lifetime service. An older-generation used Tivo capable of using cable-cards, with Lifetime Guide Data, can typically be had on auction sites at reasonable prices.
