Spectrum TV App Not Working On Samsung TV

1) Try out the alternate app store

Try out the alternate app store

If you have any problems downloading the Spectrum TV app on to your device; Samsung devices have you covered. The best thing about having a Samsung Device is that you get to enjoy two app stores. 

You can either use the Samsung Store to download the applications that you might want; or if you cannot find what you are looking for, there is the Google Play store option. Both have a whopping number of apps for you. Either one of these will have the Spectrum TV app available.

If you have downloaded the application from one store; such as the Samsung Store or the Google Play Store, but it is not working properly. You can try downloading and installing the application from the other store. Any bugs that may have been on the one app store will certainly not be on the other. 

One of the downloads will definitely work on your device. Make sure to delete the previous application download so they do not overlap each other. You do not need two of the applications on your device, and the one that you are not using will just be taking up unnecessary space.

2) Update your application version

Update your application version

Often when developers find room or improvement in an application they will created an updated version. If your application stops working it is possible that there is a new version available; the version you are running on your Samsung TV or other device may be outdated. This is one of the easiest problems to fix.. 

You need to go access the application to update it. Go to the settings menu, go to the apps tab. You will find a button to update the application. Once the application has been updated most likely any problems that you have had will be solved. You will be back to enjoying your favourite shows just like before.

3) Re-log the application

When you have updated your Spectrum TV app on your Samsung TV you will need to log into the application again. To re-log into the application you will need to either delete the application data from the settings menu of your television. You will find the application data under the “Apps” tab.  

Alternatively you will need to logout the application manually. If you prefer, you can log into your Spectrum account on a web browser, such as your PC or your phone. 

Your account will have a list of devices that are registered; you can remove the Samsung TV. Before you update the application make sure that you have your credentials memorised or written them down.

Once you have disconnected your Samsung television you will need to add it back on. Go back to the Spectrum account, using a device with a web browser. You would need to have our credentials for your Spectrum account to login. 

Once you logged in you can add the Samsung television back onto your account. Once you have done this you should have no problem connecting again and watching your favourite shows.

4) Support


On the off chance that our above trouble shooting trips do not work you will need to contact the support center. Spectrum has a very comprehensive technical support department that can assist you. 

Before you pick up the phone to them it may be easier to have a look at their own trouble shooting tips. If none of these tips work, their technical support agents will be more than happy to guide you through any other problems you may have.

When it comes to any problems with the Spectrum TV App and connectivity the Spectrum support team are your best friend. If you mention the measures you have already taken to save their time as well as yours.
