My Amazon stick doesn't do this and I'm sick of it.  Any help?

Thanks for the post.

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

 

Thanks,

This constant requirement to authenticate your provider credentials is totally frustrating.  Even more frustrating is the apparent lack of interest Roku has in helping solve this issue.  I've contacted Fox News regarding this problem as Roku has suggested, but I never get a reply.  At this point I consider the Fox News app permanently broken and Roku should remove it from their Channel Store in order to prompt Fox News to fix the app.  As long as Roku makes the app available, I believe they also take on the responsibility for it not working.  Both Fox News and Roku are responsible for this problem.

I have the very same problem - solution may be to use an Amazon Firestick on my Roku TV!!

Roku is total garbage. I couldn't even sign in and had to restart my Roku Streaming Stick just to get to the prompt to re-authenticate my subscription today.  This is total BS.

It is total garbage - the FoxNews app (and its service management) is pretty bad.

FoxNews can't be bothered to expend sufficient resources fixing the app and managing its service.

If you just want to watch FoxNews (or Fox Business) LIVE, then I recommend using the FoxNow app.
