Want to watch NBC live on Roku but no cable or satellite service is there a way?

Issue: We are 100 miles from closest NBC tower. we have no satellite or cable service, we use the ROKU for Netflix and amazon prime video. My wife wants to watch the Macy's Thanksgiving parade on NBC. The app on ROKU asks for your satellite or cable provider, so I would like to know is there anyway to purchase NBC to stream live direct from ROKU?

Do you live in a city supported by Locast app?    https://www.locast.org/

NBC is covered by Sling tv which would also enable the NBC app its cheap and gives you more

than just NBC it gives you Fox, A&E, Discovery and more I think its worth it..
