When you have a paid subscription to a cable/satellite/whatever system that carries the channel, part of your subscription fee goes to the channel.  Most cable channels that provide Roku streaming options require that you are paying for the channel through a paid provider account.

From the FAQ on Adult Swim's website:

What if I don't have a TV Service Provider

Access to this service is only available to customers of participating TV Service Providers who also subscribe to adult swim.

Many channels require a tv/cable provider.  There's nothing you can do about it if they don't offer a paid/subscription version.
