Does Fire TV Cube Work With Spectrum?

Last Updated Nov 16, 2021

Streaming TV has been wonderful as each passing day comes with new services, options, and big-name tech companies rolling out TV-compatible devices to enjoy our favourite movies even more. So now, the question on the mind of anybody with a Spectrum TV app subscription is, “Does Fire TV Cube Work With Spectrum?”

Yes. Amazon’s Fire TV Cube was built to synchronize neatly with many steaming apps, and since Spectrum TV allows you to watch 245+ channels and more than 320,000 shows, you can bet that Amazon will take some of that action.

In 2020, Amazon’s Fire Sticks were one of the very best solutions; their general design placed them behind the TV – so it made aesthetic sense. They also offered Alexa voice and TV control and came with a long list of streaming apps, and the best part was that it was so cheap for the goodness it brought. 

Fire TV Cubes Are Easy to Use

This year, Amazon took a step forward with the Amazon Fire TV Cube: a 3.4-inch square box that allows you to check the weather predictions, organize our shopping lists, catch up on the latest sports scores, look out for traffic congestions, and set up playlists, like almost any other device with full Alexa integration but made for enjoying streaming TVs on TVs. 

There’s so much more you need to know more about how to set it all up and what will be required for a good watching experience, so keep scrolling, while reading of course.

How to Install the Amazon Fire TV Cube with Spectrum TV

The Fire TV Cube, just like all generations of the Fire Stick, is an Android device, so what you’re essentially doing is installing an app on your Cube:

  1. First, connect your Fire TV Cube to your TV and make sure it’s connected to your in-home WiFi network. 
  2. Once you turn the Cube on, you’ll need to sign in using your Amazon username and password.
  3. After the sign-in, you’ll need to download the latest version of your Spectrum TV App from the device’s app store.
  4. Next, log in with your Spectrum password and username to use your Spectrum subscription. If you don’t have a Spectrum account, you can learn that rocket science formula here. You should know that you’ll need to wait 24-72 hours before signing in to any TV apps after creating your Spectrum username.

Note: You can log in using your TWC ID username and password for Spectrum customers with Time Warner Cable credentials. However, if you have Bright House Networks credentials, you can use your legacy BHN username and password while logging in.

Installing Spectrum Tv App using Third-Party options

Because the Spectrum Tv App cannot be installed directly, there are various Third Party installation options that you can use to install the app on your Fire Tv Cube alternatively.

  3. You’ll see a “Developer Option” icon on the list that appears. Proceed to click on it.
  4. Go to “Apps From Unknown Sources” and click on it. That means you are giving your device permission to install the app from Third-Party tools.

Once you have completed this simple task, you can now install the Spectrum Tv App using a third-party tool. Some of the methods through which you can do this are as follows;
