Spectrum Releases The Promised Apple TV App With No Sign-in Support

Charter Spectrum finally released its promised Apple TV app with support for tvOS 12’s “zero sign-on” features on Thursday, missing its original 2018 deadline.

The Spectrum TV app enables users to watch any channel or video on demand associated with their TV package. Zero sign-on automatically verifies subscriptions in the app, but only for customers with a Spectrum internet plan.

Before tvOS 12, the Apple TV only supported single sign-on, allowing users to enter their TV credentials once and have them pass to all compatible apps. Although not all apps support the feature and some providers may not be universally compatible, the addition was a welcome alternative to repeatedly entering the same login information.

Mid-change December’s in marketing language from “later this year” to “coming soon” virtually confirmed that the Spectrum app would not be released in 2018. Approximately concurrently, early indicators of zero sign-on appeared.

While Spectrum is an American company, France’s Canal and Switzerland’s Salt also enable the Apple TV as a cable/satellite box replacement.
