Today Spectrum Cable announced the launch of Spectrum News, a new 24/7 news network that will stream online for Spectrum customers, including their streaming customers. This new service, called Spectrum News+, will be built off of the 30 local TV news networks Spectrum already runs.
“By combining the power of our deeply-rooted local newsrooms with objective coverage of the day’s headlines, we are helping our audiences connect with their communities while also providing them with a comprehensive view of the world around them,” Spectrum News svp Alison Hellman said in a statement. “The launch of Spectrum News+ will allow even more of our customers to have access to our news coverage, and furthers our commitment to and investment in providing meaningful news to our audiences wherever they are, and however they want to watch it.”
Spectrum News+ will off 24-hours of continuous news content Monday through Friday, with plans to expand to 24/7 by the summer.
The weekday news lineup begins at 6 a.m. ET with anchor Bree Driscoll, followed by the afternoon news from noon to 6 p.m. ET anchored by a rotating lineup of Spectrum News anchors and veteran journalist Sharon Tazewell anchoring the weekday evening news starting at 6 p.m. ET. Throughout the day, Spectrum News meteorologists will report on the latest weather events happening across the country.
Spectrum News+ is available on the Spectrum News mobile app and Roku and Apple TV streaming devices.
