Newsmax missing in ROKU/Spectrum channels guide

Jump to solution

Purchased ROKU to watch Spectrum on TVs without cable boxes. Newsmax is included in Spectrum channels but does not show up on Channel guide. And can’t punch in channel number via ROKU remote. 
How is this resolved?

You contact Spectrum and ask them. They have sole control over what is available in their Roku channel/app. From everything I've seen here in the forum about the Spectrum channel, they (Spectrum) has done a terrible job with it. And only they can resolve the issues. Roku doesn't provide support for 3rd party channels, and they're all 3rd party channels except for The Roku Channel and Roku Media Player.

I have ROKU and can watch Newsmax on the Pluto app. Spectrum app doesn’t offer Newsmax unfortunately.
