I am literally paying 200 bucks a month for commercials. I was watching 8 shows at once, for experimental purposes and at one point 7 shows were in commercial! It's amazing that we can be charged 200 dollars a month and just watch commercials. Time warner, spectrum, whatever is a joke! I have tried to quit them twice and they always seem to weasel their way back in. It's 10 minutes of show and 20 minutes of commercials. It's all crap. I watch like 4 shows but yet I have to just watch commercials all day. And yet I can't get rid of my boxes cuz they fight me at every angle. Garbage company. Garbage content. Just straight garbage!
Do you realize that TWC/Spectrum has ZERO control over the content of the networks? They take what the network sends them and transmits it to its subscribers, inserting commercials in the predetermined commercial slots that the network sets.
As of this time, we do not have information to provide regarding channels that are not carried. If you would like to submit your feedback regarding your interest in this channel, you may do so via the following link: https://www.timewarnercable.com/en/support/channel

just 2 that we know of 60/6 and 100/10 @ $60 nd $100 a month
Speeds depend on your local area. Generally yes there are 2 tiers...Standard and Ultra. In some markets, Standard is 60/6 and Ultra is 100/10. In others, like mine, Standard is 100/10 and Ultra is 300/20.
I received a telemarketing call form 301-181-2834. When I tried to enter it in the blocked number list, I couldn't because the fourth number couldn't be a "0" or "1". Shouldn't Spectrum be able to block these numbers before they are passed through to the home line.
You can stop all of those annoying Spam and Telemarketing Calls by signing up for Spectrum's Nomorerobo. Here is how to do that:
1.) Log into your Spectrum "My Account"
2.) Go to "My Phone."
3.) In Your Phone Settings, select "Peace and Quiet."
4.) Find "Nomorerobo" and turn it on.
5.) Say "Yes " to activate "Answer Anywhere." This is needed for Nomorobo to work."
6.) Also activate "Anonymous Call Rejection." (Now known as Call Blocker Basic. )
7/) Save your changes.
Now when a spammer or telemarketer calls, the phone will ring once and the caller will be automatically disconnected! They can't leave a message. If you have Cable TV from Spectrum as well as phone service from them, you will see the number in your Call Log Directory list on TV, but you will not get anymore messages from spammers, telemarketers, political parties. They are all blocked! We activated Nomoorbo using the steps above two years ago, and have not had a single spammer call get through! It is great!
Additionally, important calls like doctors appointments, school information, hospitals, and pharmacies are allowed through. Go set up Nomorobo as soon as you can. It is a highly recommended service and is free from Spectrum as a part of their phone service.
First of all I appreciate the responces and the help, but many paragraphs about other problems and unrelated situations makes for alot of reading : ).. To be clear, I have used VOD PPV and On demand for years. Although each companies policies and remotes / systems are a little different, its all pretty basic. I digress.:
It turns out to be an area wide outage,
An availability issue to single me out... as told to me.
A individual STB or only My Household network.... as told to me
Not a 'Not ready to be rented movie' ....ATTM
All the running (should say 'wheeling around' in my wheelchair) resetting STBs and waiting quite a long time for STB reboot processes to finish, was for nothing.
All that was needed was to call the Tech. dept. that deals with area outages and / or looking at VOD status could have solved the problem. I should have recognized the scenario. These kinds of SOP (standard Operating Procedures) that don't get to the problem being slolved?, usually leads to an outage of some kind.
Its not the individuals reps problem either. Its a communication problem, which I find to be the culprit most times. Ironically we live in the supposed 'Communications era" , I find that to be 'completely' Untrue.. it should be the 'MIS-commuication Era' in all aspects of life. The reps should have instant outage information at their individual workstations. (or trained to look there first) Honestly I believe one rep. did say she was going to check that, It may have not been found, or wasn't posted at the time.
ANYWAY, its fixed, I am able to 'watch' the movie I rented (to check if it was working and not the one I really wanted..NBD),,, in all rooms now. I can 'rent'' movies from all STB's. Thanks for your input and help on the situiation. The one thing that should concern Spectrum is the responce from the rep that said 'I personally didn't have access to OnDemand movies that other s did". To me that was my biggest concern, I was paying the same as someone else, but wasn't getting the same perks as someone on the same tier in the same basic area.
BTW... does this forum have spellcheck? I hate being a 'proof reader' LOL
Your account number will be the one on the top left corner with the phone number, security code, and service address.
I confirmed last night that the account number is the group of digits in the middle. Some bills may code these numbers in blue for easier identification. My new Spectrum bill's digits representing the account number were not coded in blue. But my account information is the same as before. Bills are still remitted to TWC for legacy TWC customers as the Return Address shows on the Statement. The company is now Spectrum.
Another way that you can get help with finding your account number is by logging into "My Account" Online. Your account number can be found in the summary information when you login online.
Your bill will look exactly like this when the changeover occurs:
Hope this helps.
Thank you for participating in the Forums.
Have a good rest of the day!

I'm assuming the change to remove the option to search channels through the info box on the bottom of your screen is a part of the Spectrum roll out. This was by far the most used feature.
This was replaced with a recently viewed page. It may sound silly but this basic, helpful option allowed scanning of other channels without inturupting your current viewing option.
Spectrum is now asking us all to use the 'guide' page - please change.
Rently Viewed can be turned off if you liked the old channel banner arrow searching instead:
1.) Go to Settings
2.) Go to Recently Viewed
3.) Turn it off
