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.
Hello. I am a current DIRECTV subscriber and purchased this with the hopes of cutting the cord as the price for the DIRECTV just keeps going up. As I was doing my research I noticed that some of the TV example CBS requires a subscription does that mean I have to keep my DIRECTV to watch certain shows?
The answer is: it depends. Some channels are available for subscription directly, such as CBS All Access. Some channels require you to have some sort of TV provider (cable/satellite). So it depends on the channel you are considering. Also, with some channels you can use a "TV provider" such as YouTube TV or Sling instead of a cable or satellite provider.
