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.
It sounds like you may have created a Roku account that isn't located in your current region. If channels in your region are not available, it may indicate that your device is linked to an account that was created in a different region where that channel may not be offered by the channel provider. You'll want to make sure that you are using an internet connection located in the correct region when creating your account. You can check your IP address' reported location by visiting www.whatismyip.com - If you see an issue, you'll need to contact your ISP to help resolve any issue.
We would recommend creating a new Roku account in your region. For more information about how to create a new account, visit our Support page here: How do I create a Roku® account? Once your new account is set up, try to perform a factory reset on your device and link it to your new account.

Hi @RokuDanny-R thanks for the reply. We have Samsung TV's, Chromecasts, and an Nvidia Shield that were all bought in Canada & they all have both Hulu & the HBOMax apps -- neither of which were available to install on our new Roku TV.
Anyway, this is now a moot point since we've either sold or given away everything Roku.
This might be the correct for a limited number of users but most examples seem to be in areas where Hulu is available. I just bought a Roku in California and the Hulu app is just not available. For that matter, neither is Disney+, Sling, and Amazon Prime. This makes a nonsense of the service. I will be returning my Roku unless someone from Roku tells me how fix this.
