Step 2: After the app has loaded, type “https://watch.spectrum.net/” into the search bar and press “Go”.
Step 3: Enter your login credentials for your Spectrum account.
At this point, you should be brought to the main page of your Spectrum TV account via the Fire Stick’s web browser. You are all ready to enjoy your favorite sports, shows, and news channels.
