The hardware offer was included in Spectrum’s Friday press release promoting the launch of the Spectrum TV app for the Apple TV.
Charter Communications, Inc., today announced the launch of the Spectrum TV App on Apple TV. Nearly 50 million homes across Charter’s footprint now have access to live channels and tens of thousands of OnDemand programs on the Spectrum TV App for Apple TV. Additionally, starting next week and expanding throughout 2019, new and existing Spectrum TV and Internet customers can get an Apple TV 4K as part of their monthly subscription for $7.50/month plus tax for 24 months. With Apple TV 4K, customers can enjoy the Spectrum TV App as well as thousands of other apps, iTunes and more — all through one device in the living room.
“With Spectrum TV on Apple TV 4K, customers can now enjoy the ultimate entertainment experience across their iPhone, iPad and Apple TV,” said Apple VP of marketing Greg Joswiak. “We want to help customers get right to watching their favorite channels, shows, movies and sports, and with innovative features like zero sign-on, the Apple TV app and Siri, they are able to jump right in.”
