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.
My cable subscription includes the Hallmark Channel, but as of last month, the Hallmark TV app will not play on roku. I have contacted cable server and hallmark…. It is a Roku issue though. I have also tried removing the Hallmark TV channel, doing a system restart and adding the channel back again. Still receiving an error message. I am able to sign in and use the app on my computer and it seems to process on the tv, but the lock doesn’t go away and then I still receive an error message saying my cable subscription doesn't include Hallmark Channel. I’m hoping you can help.
You didnt mention your Roku model # or firmware version (Settings/System/About) or app version (highlight the app and press Options (*) on the remote).
Though this is happening on the Hallmark app on the Roku platform, it is not a Roku issue.
This appears to be a TVE (TV Everywhere) authentication issue between your cable TV provider (whomever that is) and Hallmark - you'll need to contact both to resolve it (primarily your cable TV provider).

Can you please provide us with more specific information about the issue you are experiencing? Are all other streaming channels playing content normally? Does the issue only occur on Hallmark or all channels on your Roku device? What was the error message when attempted to stream the channel? If you see something different, can you please let us know what you are seeing?
With more information, we will be able to assist you further.
Yes, it’s only hallmark. It states to go to the website, login to your carrier and type in the code. The circle turns on the tv as it’s processing, computer/phone says login successful enjoy streaming, the hallmark continues to have the lock symbol.
Please be aware that Roku doesn't manage channel logins or authentication. That is handled directly by the channel publisher. It's best to reach out to Hallmark directly to get the channel going on your Roku. They can resolve the error you are having with the channel login.
