I am trying to find a replacement for Slingbox that is shutting down service & my 2 slingboxes become bricks, so I purchased a year of CHANNELS. I thought channels was the answer, but there is no app called channels and it looks like I have to buy a $99 box to make it work.
My slingbox only required me to provide my cable provider (Charter's Spectrum Cable) and it had me all set up. I downloaded the app on my phone & could watch my home cable channels from my cable set top box anywhere in the world.
(Charter) Spectrum Cable was not listed anywhere as a provider for CHANNELS. I don't like having numerous apps providing separate streaming channels with no access to my local channels (too complicated) and mainly want to be able to watch my local channels when traveling (local channels in our small market don't stream their news or network feed)
There are NO INSTRUCTIONS HOW TO SET UP CHANNELS OR AN APP like Slingbox had.
Please help before I cancel my Channels subscription. It is very complicated and seems misleading.
