Made the jump today. It's already on my next bill! They charged me a bit more than I was expecting, but I got more than I was expecting too.
1st month charge was $27.85 for the base service and $19 the premium pack. 1st-month charges are usually higher than normal because they often include a pro-rated partial month. In my case I think I paid for an extra week, so I bet the price will drop to what I expected next month: $21.99, plus $15 for the premium pack. (Plus sales tax and a few fees.)
But meanwhile, I got not only my 10 requested channels, the premium pack, and local channels (which I don't need because I have an antenna, but the guy on the phone said it was only $3/month; for that low price I'm OK with them), but also several others. Not sure if there was a mistake on Spectrum's part; some of the extras were in the list I chose my 10 from, but aren't ones I chose! So those may go away before long.
One (very minor) annoyance: while watching MSNBC I couldn't help but notice just about every commercial break now includes a Spectrum ad! To be fair, Sling TV did the same thing, more or less.

My understanding is, you get both: streaming and cable. I'm just using streaming, because cable requires additional equipment from Spectrum (a CableCard at minimum). I suspect most folks who subscribe to this will similarly stick with streaming - a $30 Roku beats a cable box in just a few months - but I can see a few folks renting, say, a Spectrum DVR, or at least a CableCard for their TiVo, so they can record shows.
BTW, besides the listed devices, you can stream with a Web browser at watch.spectrum.net. Adobe Flash player must be enabled.
