ABC and tv provider

I use roku over the internet to get tv. When I want to view ABC I have to sign in and select a provider. Because I access roku over the internet I do not have a service provider. So is there another way to get ABC live stream or am I out of luck.

Re: tv provider

That "tv provider" service doesn't have to be a bloated cable or satellite service. There are several you can subscribe to and run on a Roku that may provide local channels and may carry the station you are interested in. Ones that come to mind to check out for any particular channel would include YouTube TV, Hulu + Live TV, Sling, fubotv, and AT&T NOW -- there may be others.

Savings in cord cutting usually come from picking and choosing which of the lesser offerings you wish to pay for instead of paying for full blown cable or satellite services with scores of channels you never watch.
