Different and wrong local stations on FOXNOW, CBS All Access, and NBC apps

I live in the San Francisco area and have been using Roku to watch local TV for the past few weeks. All of a sudden my FOXNOW channel is now showing the Philadelphia feed while the NBC channel and CBS All Access show the local feeds from Wichita, KS. Meanwhile, the ABC channel is showing the correct feed. I have seen threads with similar issues, but I haven't seen this exact problem where the different channels are showing local TV from different locations.

I've tried resetting my router and Roku and unlinking from and reconnecting to my cable provider (xfinity), but have had no luck.

I went to whatismyipaddress.com and it has my correct location. Iplocation.net shows three locations, one of which is correct. Curiously, one of the other two locations is in the Philadelphia area, but the other location listed is Chicago, rather than Wichita.

Re: Different and wrong local stations on FOXNOW, CBS All Access, and NBC apps

I live in Central IL and have been getting the local NBC news/programming for several years.  I am now getting the local feed from Wilmington, NC.  It is an issue on both our Roku TV and  Visio TV with a Roku device.  I even tried resetting to factory settings and starting from scratch on the Roku device and that didn't work.
