Help & troubleshooting for channels on your Roku device, including adding/removing channels, logging in to, authenticating, or activating a channel, channel-specific playback issues, assistance contacting channel publishers to report issues, and adjusting channel-specific settings.
I just subscribed to Showtime through Roku. My original assumption was that I would be able to use the Showtime app, but it appears that is not possible; I have to use a specific Roku app that streams most, but not all, of the Showtime content.
I am not here to complain but to ask: What is the benefit of subscribing to premium channels through Roku if I can not use the premium apps which are better and subscription cost exactly the same (in the case of ShowTime, has live streaming)?
If there is no clear benefit, the solution is easy enough. Cancel subscription that is through Roku, and resubscribed specifically through the premium channel website, such as Showtime. No big deal if that is the case, just want to know if Roku does provide some added benefit for subscribing through Roku?
