Apple & Charter Spectrum Starting TV’s Zero Sign-on is Live Now!
If you are using Charter Spectrum and Apple, this is for you. Now that Charter Spectrum supporting the feature of Apple TV “Zero sign-on” is live. If you are subscribed to spectrum, you should now be able to access content in any app just by connecting your Apple TV to your Spectrum network as the feature, announced earlier, that it automatically signs in to apps that will require a cable subscription when the device is connected to the internet from the same provider.
Spectrum is the first service provider to merge with zero sign-on feature. Zero sign-on was introduced with the release of tvOs 12 as an update to Apple’s single sign-on feature which was introduced a few years back.
There’s no update on when it will be available for other cable providers.
Apple Insider stated that Apple’s splash page for Apple TV now shows Charter Spectrum is “coming soon” on the platform while zero sign-in support for Spectrum has arrived, the cable provider’s own app for Apple TV was delayed. It was shown on an archived version of the page that spectrum subscribers would enjoy live programming through Apple TV “later this year”.
There was an announcement for Charter that the support would be available by December 3rd, then 13th, according to 9to5Mac, but both of those dates have come and gone without spectrum app being available. The company has not replied to request for comment when Engadget reached out to Charter.
