Lost Free Streaming ABC & NBC

Prior to June 15 (my Birthday btw) I have been able to watch NBC and ABC live network broadcasts via my Roku Express. Wednesday, June 16th...I am asked to enter an activation code with  my TV PROVIDER.  I cut the cord over a year ago and have no provider.  Disney+ has a bundle (Disney+, Hulu & ESPN) which I bought believing that this would solve the issue.  AH...nope.  Disney bundle Hulu does not cover live stream. 

So - anyone have any ideas what transpired between midnight 6/15 and 12:01 am 6/16? Not a happy camper.

Did you ever have to re-authorize after cancelling your previous service? If not, it simply expired and you now have to re-authorize. You are very lucky it lasted a full year. Some people end up having to reauthorize every day or two!

Same issue. About once a month this happens. How do I re-authorize?
