Local channels on Hulu Live TV are not for my location

Trying to get local channels through Hulu Live TV for my area, central eastern Minnesota, and the local channels that show up are for Oregon.  It only does this on the Roku, all other devices come up with the proper local channels.  No way to change zip code or anything on the Roku.  How can this be fixed?  Tried Googling it and after all the other solutions this was the last one to try.

Re: Local channels on Hulu Live TV are not for my location

Two possibilities come to mind.

  1. Are you connecting to the internet through a VPN that masks your true location and goes through a server in the Oregon?
  2. When you created your Roku account were you located in the Oregon or using a VPN with its server in the Oregon?
