We’ve had a few customers call in or utilize on online product feedback / suggestion forum about Replay TV and Start Over features. This post is meant to help provide some detail about the features and why there seems to be an inconsistent ability to utilize these features across networks and programming.
Why aren’t all channels available via Replay TV?
The reason not all channels are available via Replay TV is that not all networks grant us the right to offer what is called ‘Look Back’ in the TV industry. The TV Networks (ABC, TBS, ESPN, etc.) tell C Spire if we can record their content automatically and allow our customers to view previously aired shows.
And to take this a step further, even for a network that regularly allows for Replay TV content, there can be individual shows that they say can not be included.
To get a better sense of what channels allow Replay TV and which channels do not, please refer to our online channel lineup.
Why don’t all shows have Start Over feature?
The reason not all shows allow you to rewind to the beginning is that not all networks grant us the right to offer this feature. TV Networks tell C Spire which shows and channels can have this feature and we simply enforce the rights that we are given.
Starting March 1, 2018, C Spire TV and SNAP customers will notice an increase to the Local Channel Fee you pay each month for the local channels carried in your area. The local channel fee is a fee passed directly through to the owners of the local channels for permission to broadcast their otherwise free signal via our service.
Columbus / Tupelo DMA — $9.55
Greenville / Greenwood DMA — $14.64
Hattiesburg DMA — $13.10
Jackson DMA — $13.20
Meridian DMA — $12.80
We bring this to your attention as part of our continuing commitment to clear and consistent billing. To us, it’s an important part of being customer inspired.

We’re very excited to announce that our C Spire TV platform has received a top national television technology award from Cablefax for the 2017 introduction of the nation’s first app-based, live streaming digital commercial TV service.
A panel of TV and digital media industry experts judged C Spire TV the top commercial television product, service or software last year.
We will be formally honored along with other award winners on March 6th during a special breakfast program at The Yale Club in New York City. The program recognizes the industry’s most outstanding practices and products powering television technology and digital communications.
We built C Spire TV from the ground up based upon the needs of our customers.

And since launch we continue to rely upon our customers to help navigate the course for this amazing new TV platform.
