Receiving message "You have exceeded your account limits for this service:Invalid"
When trying to access Fox Sports with Roku, I have to enter the activation code and log into Direct Tv on the Fox Sports website. It says it was a success but when I try to access Fox Sports on TV, I get the message "You have exceeded your account limits for this service:Invalid" No other Roku device is being used and Direct TV states we can sign into 5 different TVs.
That's definitely the service sending that message. Some services have, on their Website, a place where you can log out of all devices. I don't use that service, so I can't say with certainty that applies here, but it is a common thing.
Some services have limits on the number of devices, some have limits on the number of concurrent streams, and some have both. Logging out of all devices resets both counters to zero, and allows you to log in again and start adding devices and utilizing streams.
Some services also support Roku Single Sign On (SSO), so you may even need to remove the app, reboot the Roku, then reinstall the app. But try logging out all devices first, if that option is available on the service Website.

Re: Receiving message "You have exceeded your account limits for this service:Invalid"
I'm not sure because when we log into ESPN, through Roku, with our Direct TV credentials, we don't get that message. Also, when I was on the phone with Direct TV, I was able to log in to Fox Sports thru the computer, with my Direct TV sign on with no problem. It just really has a us stumped.
