I don't have a television provider.

I live where I can't get television service, even with satellite providers. That's why I wanted a streaming service. But now I find I can't access a lot of content without a provider. I have sling, hulu  prime and netflix, but I can't watch a lot of Nat geo wild and animal planet shows. Help?

Re: I don't have a television provider.

How do I use Sling TV as authentication for another app?

These are the apps you can log into with your Sling TV email and password.

Re: I don't have a television provider.

I'm a Hulu live subscriber but can't sign into Turner Classic Movie app as they are not listed as a provider. Anyone have a workaround? Appreciated.

They have on demand movies on their app I'd like to access. By the way, thanks for the polite response.

Rural West Virginia. Not enough customers for cable, too many hills and trees for satellite reception.

Re: I don't have a television provider.

Well if you have internet you are doing fine. Satellite and cable aint nothing.

I dont have a so called Provider either by choice.

Both those Channels/apps are available in the Roku Channel store.

Nat geo wild is not available, and that's what it says I need.
