Spectrum News 1 – Award Winning Local State Channels

Spectrum News

Spectrum News is a localized news channel exclusively for Spectrum customers. With the acquisition of Time Warner Cable by Charter Communications in 2016, all the channels that fell under Time Warner Cable News were rebranded as Spectrum News. Similarly, many of the regional sports channels and networks came under the umbrella of Spectrum Sports.

The news channels are remarkably providing all important and relevant regional news very responsibly. Their 24/7 coverage of news, sports, weather, and everything happening around in your immediate surroundings is something really admiring. We have quite a large number of national and international news channels, but we didn’t have one to rely on when it came to regional and local channels.

However, with the merger of Time Warner Cable and Charter Communications, Spectrum has made the news much more interesting and timelier than ever before!
