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'm considering the purchase of a Roku device in order to use an AcornTV gift subscription that I received. However, I'm not certain that is possible without subscribing to some sort of Roku service. I simply want to access the AcornTV channel and apply my gift subscription credentials there.
For more information about that channel's features, functionality, and account subscription information, you'll want to contact AcornTV support directly to inquire further. Many channels on Roku are developed and maintained by the channel provider themselves.
