Today, CBS, the U.S. government and other broadcasters have announced that spectrum-exclusive subscribers will no longer be able to watch TV shows on the Spectrum Internet.
This means that, for now, the only way to watch CBS and other television programming will be via the Spectrum app.
The move is expected to help CBS and the other broadcasters, who have been trying to negotiate a deal with Dish Network for years, secure the rights to broadcast TV shows.
But it has also led to some controversy.
Critics say the move is unfair to those who rely on their homes for home entertainment and argue that it would hurt their ability to earn money on the TV side of their business.
In a blog post today, Dish Network, which owns CBS, said it would continue to operate the Spectrum mobile app as part of its home entertainment services.
The company did not say how many of its subscribers will be affected by the change.
Dish, CBS and their affiliates have been negotiating with Dish since late 2015 over how the wireless carrier could sell its TV content to wireless carriers.
Dish was the first to offer mobile streaming apps on Apple TV and Amazon Fire TV devices, but later switched to a web-based service.
The Spectrum app is available on Apple, Android and Windows devices.
It lets subscribers access a vast array of content, including broadcast television shows, the CBS app, CBS Sports, CBSSports.com, CBS Mobile, CBS TV, CBS Local, CBS News, CBSN and CBS World.CBS is currently offering a mobile version of its CBS app that includes CBS Sports Radio and the CBS Sports app.
