Cox subscription

I have cable through cox. I have not decided to cut the cord yet. For channels like ION do I have to pay for a subscription even though I have it through cox?  I do not have a minibox or client box or dvr hooked up to my roku tv just using my internet right now. Trying to see what I can get just using my internet. Help?

Re: Cox subscription


Thanks for the inquiry.

Some channels must be purchased or require a paid subscription, but many others allow you to watch movies and TV shows for free.

Please feel free to reach out to the channel provider for more information regarding channel availability with your currently setup.
