Subscribed Channel

If I'm subscribed to a channel and add it to my Roku listings, do I have to log into that channel on my TV? I have Amazon Prime but when I look for a TV show within that channel on Roku, it tells me I have to pay for the show.

Re: Subscribed Channel

A lot of channels, like Amazon Prime, require you to login.  There should be a place to login to your Amazon Prime account within the channel.

Also -- only SOME of the programs available on Amazon are included with Prime. The rest must be paid for. The Prime-included one's have a blue-on-white Prime ribbon shown diagonally in the upper left corner.

Re: Subscribed Channel

Additional response.  Some channels you've subscribed to maintain a list of devices that have been authorized to receive their programming.  When you get a new device you have to log into those channels with the new device to get it added to that channel's authorized list.
