Spectrum Guide Overview




Charter Spectrum is our new suite of innovative services that deliver the most advanced TV, Internet, and Voice services available anywhere.  We are enabling the Charter Spectrum Guide TV on select digital receivers throughout the next year.  You will be notified of availability in your area via email and direct mail.

Currently, the guide is being deployed to HD non-DVR digital receiver households only, but parts of St. Louis, MO and Reno, NV are scheduled for deployment in early 2015

NOTE: During the ongoing release, you may experience different guides on the digital receivers in your home. Periodically, Charter will automatically update additional receivers to the Charter Spectrum Guide.
