How do I get TCM if I discontinue Directv and use Roku?

Is there a way to download/watch TCM (Turner Classic Movies) if I go with streaming #Roku?  We currently have Directv.

I can't say for certain which might work, but there are streaming services that offer many of the so called "cable" channels. You might check YouTube TV or Sling TV for their channel selection.

TCM only streams to people who are already paying for it through a TV provider subscription, like your DirecTV.

That provider can be any of several services that includes TCM that you can get on Roku.  Services I've found that include TCM are Sling, YouTube TV, Hulu plus Live TV, and ATT Now. If you subscribe to any of these through Roku you will only be able to access it on your Roku.  If you subscribe directly with the service on its website, you'll be able to view it on Roku and any other system supported by the service.

I've also seen that many TCM movies are available through HBO Max.
