When it comes to diversity in programming, we believe in providing our customers with the broadest selection of content available. Spectrum offers more than 200 international and foreign language channels in over 15 languages - from Spanish, Russian, Italian and French, to Chinese, Korean and Japanese. 

“We provide a wide selection of content and multiple ways to view it that are responsive to the diverse interests and needs of our customers,” said Tom Montemagno, Executive Vice President, Programming Acquisition. 

Spectrum Features Quality African American and Latino Programming

We serve 21 of the top 25 African American television markets and 20 of the top 25 Hispanic television markets. 

We offer more than 75 Spanish language channels, featuring news, live sports, education and entertainment. 

Our robust carriage of African American owned or themed networks currently includes ASPiRE, Revolt, Up, Bounce TV, The Impact Network, BET, BET Her, TV One, Cleo TV, OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network) and others. 

Our First Spectrum Original Content Show

Our first original show, “L.A.’s Finest,” which launched in May of 2019, is a great example of how Charter values diversity both in front of and behind the camera. Jessica Alba and Gabrielle Union are among the show’s stars and executive producers. 

“We are deeply committed to diversity in our original content and programming that is reflective of the broad interests, voices and rich composition of our nation,” said Katherine Pope, Senior Vice President and Head of Original Content.
