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.

LOVE the app because it works ...

You don’t need to be computer internet digital savvy, but once configured on all yr devices the delivery is seamless. My only issue is Spectrum’s over all cost. Streaming is the future. Though there ‘s a 10-15 sec delay, and sometimes losing Internet connectivity, ... though rare in the city can and will probably happen to you sometime, it’s rare. Get rid of the set top box and invest in a high broadband Internet connection and Roku. FIOS, Optimum , I.e and offers a thousand of additional paid and free channel options Subscription costs app but like broadcast - cable someone needs to pony up. For a New Yorker, Spectrum News is great for local news in real time. Part of the reason I’m still on Spectrum, but my days are counted. The key is having a high speed Internet connection for a streaming experience. And if you rather 100 channels instead of 1000 the choice is yours. Unfortunately in my current financial situation I need the essential for less...

Works ok but needs some updates

First let me just state that all I want from the app I’d local television and maybe a few others and for just that it does a decent job. It does get a bit laggy here and there and when you first turn on the tv and Apple TV you have to back out of the app to get to started. Cold booting the Apple TV into the spectrum app (if that’s how you shut it down) doesn’t work, all you get is a loading pinwheel. Back out of the app and to the Apple TV main menu then go back into the spectrum app and all is well

My biggest problem with the app is the “still there? Interact with your remote to continue watching” popup that will not go away. It comes and goes when it wants, sometimes staying visible for weeks at a time. It covers the lower third display used by news etc to give more info on things your watching which is annoying. To fix it you have to delete the app from the Apple TV and re-install. Then in 3-4 days when it happens again you either ignore it for as long as you can bear or delete and re-install the app again

Please fix this I beg of you!! Slower speeds and pixelation here and there I can deal with but a floating prompt covering the whole lower third of the tv is mind numbingly frustrating
