Activate FOX NEWS ?

How do I get FOX NEWS without a TV provider?  My idea is to subscribe to "PhILO", but they do not include Fox News.
Fox News says they accommodate the ROKU.  I guess I am missing something here.
Any direction would be a great help.

You need a cable provider for full access.
Yeah, I got some Rokus.

Cable systems pay a per-subscriber fee to Fox News. Fox isn't going to undercut their cable accounts and give it to you for free. You can only get it via a paid cable or other streaming subscription that pays a part of your subscription fee to Fox.

Most 'cable' stations operate this same way.

That means  "PHILO" is out and DTVN is in. It's a conspiracy against the user that want a few select  channels.
