Is HGTV only viewable with Discovery+ account?

Jump to solution

HGTV Go has changed their Roku formatting.  In order to get authorization you have to go to the link provided to link your cable account.  I do have HGTV as part of my FIOS package but when I try to link it tells me I need to purchase access to Discovery+.  I have HGTV on cable through the sports and news package and do not want Discovery+. Is anyone else having this issue?

Thanks for the inquiry.

For more information about that channel's authentication and functionality, you'll want to contact the channel provider support directly to inquire further. Many channels on Roku are developed and maintained by the channel provider themselves.
