Having to repeatedly enter Optimum code

I have multiple Rokus, some for non HDTVs and some fir HDTVs. I find that for both type Roku’s, I am frequently asked to enter a code to confirm that I get a particular channel through my Optimum cable subscription. For example, I watch CNBC every day on a non-HDTV kitchen TV via a Roku, and every week I See your message informing me that I can’t access my CNBC content Unless I enter a code online that confirms I get CNBC with my Optimum subscription. This is extremely inconvenient and annoying. I have excellent wireless signal strength because I bought a new router recently so that is not the issue.

Re: Having to repeatedly enter Optimum code

That's not roku doing, its the app owner, wanting to make sure you're still subscribed to your cable service. The big thing now cutting the cord.
