How to Order Pay-Per-View on Spectrum
Ordering through TV Remote
As discussed earlier, ordering Pay-Per-View is not much of a task. You can use your TV remote to do so. Just follow the given steps and place an order without any hassle:
- Hold your remote and navigate to the list where all the PPV events are available.
- Press the ‘OK’ button on your remote.
- Follow the available instructions to order your favorite event.
However, you need to keep this in mind that not all events will be available in all the regions. The list will depend on your location. It varies from region to region.
Ordering without the TV Remote
If you think that ordering via the remote will get complicated, you can always call Spectrum customer service helpline 1-866-200-7855 and the rep will guide you through.
You will receive a 4-digit purchase pin when you place an order. In case, you are purchasing your phone, the rep will ask you to tell the Pin. You cannot proceed without entering or telling this Purchase Pin.
TV Packages Offering PPV
Unlike TBS, which may be available with plans that Spectrum offers, you can opt for PPV regardless of the package you select. The available packages for Spectrum TV include:
- TV Select
- TV Silver
- TV Gold
You do not have to opt for the most expensive package to subscribe to PPV. You get access to it with the most basic package as well. However, keep in mind the additional cost that you will have to pay for each event.
Is PPV Available in Other Languages?
For those of you wondering, PPV is not only available in English. If you belong to the Hispanic community, not only do Spectrum TV plans include exclusive channels for you, but PPV also comes in a Spanish version. Named PPV en Espanol (PPVE), this version gives you access to everything Spanish when it comes to live events and movies. However, the availability of PPVE also depends on your location.
PPV and Limitations
Many people wonder if there is a limit on the number of events that they can order on PPV. The answer is yes. Every account comes with a purchasing limit. However, if you have been a Spectrum customer for more than six months and have a good standing, you can use your position to request an increase in your limit. You can do so by calling Spectrum’s customer service number and talking to the rep.
Another limitation regarding PPV is the number of times that you can view the movie or event purchased. As far as the movies are concerned, you can watch them as many times as you please within 24 hours of purchase. But you can view the live events only once.
You also need to be considerate about the time at which you place an order for a live event. Make sure to place an order for a live event an hour before its commencement or within 30 minutes after it starts. However, there is no limitation when it comes to viewing the same event or movie on multiple receivers. You can easily tune in from different receivers while not paying separately for each receiver that you watch the event on.
Subscribing to Spectrum TV packages has its advantages. Where you get access to entertaining channels like ACC Network, you also get the PPV option to watch live sports events. In case, you have any other query regarding PPV, you can visit Spectrum’s official website or call the helpline.
