CNN Channel Activation codes

Jump to solution

After watching CNN for the trial period it gives me an activation code.  When I put it in to my Roku account it tells me that it is not available in our area.  If it is not available in our area why were we able to watch it for the trial period.  The longer we have ROKU  the more I feel ROKU is a piece of junk.

Thanks for the inquiry.

Please be aware that you will need a TV or cable provider in order to authenticate that channel, not an internet provider.

Thanks for the inquiry.

For more information about that channel's functionality and authentication, you'll want to contact CNN support directly to inquire further. Many channels on Roku are developed and maintained by the channel provider themselves.
