Additionally, you will have access to a variety of settings to control the volume, see relevant TV listings, closed captioning, etc. You will also have the ability to watch live TV programs at a later time (only for selected shows). If you don’t have the time to watch it live as it streams, you can save the relevant program on a watchlist. Over 130 TV channels can be watched live online using their platform. However, full channel lineup depends on your location and your subscription package. The cheapest package is Spectrum TV Select which offers at least 125 TV channels. If you are in need of premium channels like HBO, Showtime, Cinemax and NFL, you should opt for the Spectrum TV Silver package.

The cheapest (Select) package would not have any premium or sports channels.
