Re: New Tennis Channel w/o cable provider how to make it work

You can perhaps mirror the Tennis Channel content to your TV through Roku (or RokuTV) if compatible since you have an iPhone using Airplay and Homekit.

Here is Roku's help and info on it.  https://support.roku.com/article/360057488733#!  

Another method is to stream on a device (laptop/tablet) that allows you to HDMI to your TV.

I am not an Apple user, so perhaps others could add if there is a better method.

There are various ways of streaming desired content/subscriptions to your Roku devices without a cable or television provider.  There is casting, mirroring, and physical HDMI cable.  I am just not sure which is the easiest for Apple users.

Since you have a subscription direct from tennischannel.com you use that to login using the "Subscription" sign in option, NOT the "Provider" sign-in option:

Open the Tennis Channel app/Settings/My Account/Subscriptions/Sign in
