Charter TV is not a television network but a subscription cable service offered by Charter Communications. As of 2015, it is available in a number of states across the country, including California, North Carolina, Alabama, Texas and Wisconsin.
Charter Communications calls its television package Charter Spectrum, and the service includes free HD, over 10,000 free on-demand choices including primetime programs, free DVR service for a limited time and access to the Spectrum app. The company also offers Internet and home phone services, offering a discount to customers who bundle the services together.
The Spectrum app allows any device with a screen to become a television with access to over 170 live TV channels in the home. Movies and shows can also be downloaded to the app and streamed outside of the home without an Internet connection. The app also allows compatible devices to act as a television remote, browse on demand titles remotely and schedule DVR recordings. It is available on both Apple and Android devices. Charter Spectrum and Internet services are required to use the app.
