Spectrum tv app. Problem

I have used the spectrum app to, among other things, watch live tv for years on both my iPad & iPhone with good results until a major problem in the past few weeks. I have always done all updates when they have become available on the App Store with good results. Suddenly, in the past couple weeks I’ve had a major problem of both the picture & sound repeatedly freezing for no apparent reason. I’ve found this primarily while watching channel 44, tv land, on our spectrum system. The only way I’ve been able to “restart” the program has been to completely close the app and then restart it——and in this case it will run a few minutes and again “freeze” again. This occurs on my iPad and seems to be “a new issue” since the last update. I have gone to a regular tv several times during a ‘freeze” an find the same program playing normally on the tv when it’s “frozen” at the same time on my ipad. Please try to fix this bug as the spectrum app is currently useless to me,

Thank you ,

Great For iOS; Bad on AppleTV

The SpectrumTV app works great on my Apple mobile devices (iPhone and iPad). Unfortunately, it is very buggy on AppleTV 4K. Why it works on iOS and not TvOS is a mystery. Sometimes there is audio and no picture when watching live TV; other times no picture or sound at all. Even when there is picture and sound, the picture breaks up. Many times there is still running audio while the picture is frozen. There are problems with buffering and freeze-ups, also. None of these issues occur while using the app on my iPhone or iPad Pro; only AppleTV. I’ve confirmed that the problem is not with my internet connection, speed, or my wireless network (both 2.4GHz and 5GHz). Also, other apps stream just fine. The fault is definitely the app only on AppleTV. I’ve even deleted and reinstalled the app on AppleTV several times with no luck. Also, my AppleTV is fully up to date. The app is totally disfunctional on AppleTV. I hope the developer looks into this and gets another update going to correct this. I cannot be the only one having this issue; and I’ve done all troubleshooting possible. As I say, the SpectrumTV app works great on iOS, just not on TvOS.

I have not encountered any issues with on-demand viewing using the SpectrumTV app on AppleTV. All the issues I am encountering seem to be concerning live TV viewing only.

Why so inconsistent

I finally got all my channels working again, streaming to Apple TV not a smart TV just casting to the smart Apple TV box.

After calling spectrum this morning they sent a "refresh" refreshing the channels that I get and then all of a sudden all my channels started working again streaming to Apple TV why does it have to be so difficult why don't you just put a little message in the application that pops up and says if you experiencing a problem streaming please call spectrum to have a refresh signal sent to your devices is that too much to ask you could've saved me so much aggravation here in Florida this weekend we had a hurricane bearing down on us and you people made it worse. Because your app is not intuitive because your pop-ups do not exist you never fixed your defects you seem to consistently update the app maybe correcting one issue but always breaking another and that's why you get two stars and I'm giving you a lot with those two stars I'm holding back everything not to give you one.
