Just over a year ago, Spectrum TV started to quietly allow customers to sign up for a small à la carte package of 10 channels you pick and you get your locals, including PBS, and 25 music channels for $21.99 a month. From there you can pick 10 additional channels from a long list of channels including AMC, Cartoon Network, Comedy Central, ESPN, FOX News, Hallmark Channel, NFL Network, and The Weather Channel.
Now Spectrum has raised the price of this service from $21.99 a month to $24.99 a month. Spectrum has also raised the fees on the service from $3 a month to $5 a month for broadcast TV channels.
This comes as Spectrum announces plans to launch a cheaper Philo-like streaming service. This new service will cost $14.99 plus tax, and Spectrum says it will have no additional fees or installation charges. For that price, the service will offer 60 channels targeting customers who are not looking for news or sports but want access to networks like AMC and the Hallmark Channel. Both services require you to have Spectrum Internet.
This new service will give you access to A&E, AMC, American Heroes Channel, Animal Planet, AXS TV, BBC America, BBC World News, BET, BET Her, BET Jams, BET Soul, Bloomberg, Cheddar, CLEO TV, CMT, CMT Music, Comedy Central, Cooking Channel, Destination America, Discovery, Discovery Family, Discovery Life, DIY, Food Network, FYI, Game Show Network, Hallmark Channel, Hallmark Drama, Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, HDNet Movies, HGTV, HISTORY, IFC, Investigation Discovery, Lifetime, Lifetime Movie Network, Logo, MotorTrend Network, MTV, MTV2, MTV Classic, MTV Live, MTVU, NewsmaxTV, Newsy, Nickelodeon, Nick Jr., Nick Music, NickToons, Outdoor Channel, OWN, Paramount Network, Science Channel, Sundance TV, Teen Nick, TLC, Travel Channel, TV Land, VH1, Viceland, The Weather Channel, and WEtv.
At launch, the new service will be available on iOS and Android phones and tablets, Apple TV, Roku, Xbox One, Amazon Kindle Fire, Samsung Smart TVs, and computers via SpectrumTV.com. There will be no DVR, but Spectrum plans to introduce a Cloud DVR in the future.
