Charter offering new skinny bundle

Charter Communications Inc. is offering a new in-home skinny bundle called Spectrum TV Choice, Multichannel News reported, citing a website dedicated to the service.

The offering includes local broadcast networks and 25 Music Choice channels, and allows users to choose 10 more channels to make up their package, according to the report.

Users can pay an additional fee for premium add-ons such as Time Warner Inc.'s HBO (US), Showtime (US), The Movie Channel and Starz / Starz Encore (US).

After a discounted first month of $15, Spectrum TV Choice costs $25 per month for the first two years, Multichannel News said, citing TechHive.

Premiums costs $7.50 each per month, or $15 per month as a bundle.

The service is available on mobile devices, web browsers, Roku Inc. players and Microsoft Corp.'s Xbox. A Charter-provided set-top box is not required, but would be necessary to add a DVR, the report said.

Spectrum TV Choice is provided through a managed IP connection, but offers out-of-home rights to certain channels for the linear TV and/or video-on-demand assets.

According to Charter, Spectrum TV Choice is not a rebrand of Charter Spectrum TV Stream, which is another skinny bundle that Charter introduced in June 2017, but rather "also targeted at customers who don't currently purchase a video product from us," a Charter official said.
