A lot of those require a cable subscription to authenticate against.  You can look at something like Sling or  Youtube TV to see what they offer.  Some of those channels can be subscribed to separately without any kind of cable provider.  It can be quite costly for all the separate subscriptions and it takes a bit of effort to try to figure out how to get everything you're used to getting.
