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.
1) All the major news channels EXCEPT Fox News allow streaming live (free) news. Fox requires you to use a TV/cable provider at additional cost. I found that I can load the Fox News ap and jump past the LIVE selection and get the podcasts. I can live without "Live" Fox News as long as I can stream the podcasts. 2) When I view Fox News podcasts, EVERY time an ad comes on, it resets the ad back to the beginning after about a 4 second play. Then the full ad runs. This is annoying and I reported it to Fox News support. (I didn't mention to them that often the ads are pixelated as well. I could care less.) 3) Just to be clear: CBSN works like a charm and is the industry standard when it comes to streaming news (IMHO). ABC news is slow to load, but otherwise works well. NBC news (which I watch rarely) is also slow to respond and programming is not as slick as others. CNN works, but is too liberal to tolerate. I prefer SKY news or any other news feeds to CNN. If Fox ever gets their act together it may pair with CBSN, but until then I think they will lag in customer base.
All said and done, ROKU is my go-to for TV programming. I have been a customer for several years and just now registered on the forum to see if I could find a clue about my issue with Fox News. I see that many Roku customers have other complaints about Fox News, so I thought my comments might help.
