Tucker Carlson Tonight on Fox Nation

Jump to solution

Is anyone else having issues with the Tucker Carlson Tonight show on the Fox Nation app? I realize it takes several days for Roku to upload the episodes so usually we watch them anywhere from 5 days to a week later than original air date. However, we watched an episode on Tuesday, 8/3 (the episode was from the previous week) with no problems. Then on Wednesday, 8/4 when we tried to watch another one, the episodes show up but when you try to play them a message appears that says "no provider support." I have contacted both Fox Nation & Roku customer support, neither of which were any help. Thanks!

@alritchie

Thanks for the inquiry.

For more information about that channel's content and functionality, you'll want to contact the channel provider support directly to inquire further. Many channels on Roku are developed and maintained by the channel provider themselves. 

 

Thanks,

There's nothing Roku can do to help. That's a function completely within the channel, and only the channel provider can assist with that. Fox support is all you can do.

So if it's true that this is a network...that being Fox....why can I access all other Fox shows? Seems kinda odd to me

This answer seems inadequate. On the Fox Nation tab on Roku, it now says that Roku is not offering Tucker Carlson Today episodes. Why? They were accessible just a couple of days ago. This doesn't seem to be an issue with Fox Nation. If I can't get all the content I pay for, why subscribe?

If you are referring to the content within The Roku Channel (you didn't specify), the content is what is negotiated between Roku and the content provider, in this case Fox. Perhaps Roku didn't want to offer that specific show, perhaps Fox doesn't want it available on Roku devices outside their own channel. But in the end it's almost always due to what the content providers are willing to provide. Roku can only stream what the providers are willing to offer.

And that means it's likely Fox that is controlling what is available within The Roku Channel. Since they offer their own, separate channel on Roku devices, I would expect they want to reserve some desired content specifically for their own channel. And Roku can't change that.

As to why they were there previously, streaming agreements have expiration dates, and Roku can't stream the agreed upon content outside the agreement dates.

I have a similar problem.  I bought Fox Nation through Roku and Tucker Carlson disappeared on my TV.  It shows as "Included with subscription.  Watch in HD" when I locate it in Search on the home page.  However, when I click on it to watch it, it circles and never takes me to the program.  If I go to my Roku account on my computer,  Tucker's program is there and plays fine.  Thanks.  I have a ONN Roku TV that is brand new.
