Help & troubleshooting for channels on your Roku device, including adding/removing channels, logging in to, authenticating, or activating a channel, channel-specific playback issues, assistance contacting channel publishers to report issues, and adjusting channel-specific settings.
ABC only makes this available for streaming to those who can receive their ABC channel via a subscription to a service that carries it (cable, satellite, other streaming service). This assures them that your local ABC affiliate is getting paid by the TV Provider service, and that ABC gets their cut from the local channel.
If you have such a subscription, while in the ABC Roku app try this:
Go to the Account setting across the top.
Go down to the TV Provider setting on the left.
If it shows you're signed in with your TV Provider, sign out.
Sign in with your current TV Provider.
