Not applicable

Box required or not?

I signed up for TV choice because I liked being able to pick the channels I get - and because the service is advertised as no cable box required. However, the information I'm finding since activating the service seems to indicate that 'box not required' only applies if you have Roku, a Samsung smart TV, or an Xbox (or if you screen mirror a device with the Spectrum app to your TV). Is that indeed the case, or am I completely missing something?

Re: Box required or not?

A set top box is not required but is an option.


You have the choice to stream only through one of  the supported devices or using a leased set top box from Spectrum, or using both methods.
