Spectrum Sports is a regional sports network serving Ohio and parts of northern Kentucky, southern Michigan and western Pennsylvania operated by Charter Communications through its acquisition of Time Warner Cable in May 2016. Broadcasting on Channel 311 and 1311 exclusively on Time Warner Cable systems. It is currently not carried by any satellite providers. The network reaches more than 2.4 million viewers across three states and delivers more than 200 high definition events each year.

The channel began in September 1998 [1] in Columbus, Ohio as a partnership between Insight Communications and Time Warner Cable called "Central Ohio Sport! Television." Similar channels debuted in February 2004 to Dayton and in 2006 to Cincinnati [2] as TWTV and in Cleveland and Akron/Canton,_Ohio as NEON. In August 2012 the service replaced four regional part-time sports channels (Central Ohio Sport! Television, TWTV, Time Warner Cable Sports 24, and NE Ohio Network) into a three-zoned statewide sports network that serves 83 of Ohio's 88 counties.

It was reported that on November 17 and 18, 2015, the network will air Before The League - a documentary series on the history of professional American football in Ohio.[3]

Currently the channel is the home to the Columbus Crew, one of the original Major League Soccer franchises; Mid-American Conference college football and basketball including University of Akron, Bowling Green State University, University at Buffalo, The State University of New York, Kent State University, Miami University, Ohio University, Ball State University, Central Michigan University, Eastern Michigan University, Northern Illinois University, University of Toledo, and Western Michigan University; Dayton Flyers basketball; and the Ohio High School Athletic Association. The channel airs supplemental local shows, smaller collegiate sports, and other minor professional sports within the Ohio, Kentucky, Pennsylvania franchise areas of Time Warner Cable.

After the construction of a new high definition studio and control room in the fall of 2014, Time Warner Cable SportsChannel debuted multiple new sports programs including #Hooley, College Gametime Ohio, and Armchair Quarterbacks.
