Where Are My Premium Channels on the new Live TV channel?

After receiving an email notification of the new Roku Live TV channel, I installed it. None of my 13 Premium Pay channels appear in the Live program guide. However, I do see offers to subscribe to channels I already have subscribed to. Shouldn't I expect to see channels I've paid for in my guide? 

I have done an update twice, as well as re-started my Roku device twice, but my premium channels are still not available.

An explanation or solution would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Re: Where Are My Premium Channels on the new Live TV channel?

Hi Danny. Thanks for offering your help. Apparently I wasn't clear in my question, so I'll try again.

I use the Roku Ultra on my living room TV and all my TV service is streaming. Through Roku I have purchased subscriptions for 13 additional services. Of course I have downloaded those channels to my Roku service, and watch them through separate channels. Everything is fine with my service and my purchases.

A couple of days ago I received an email notification re Roku's new Live TV channel and guide. So, I added that channel to my line-up to see what it offered.

As I explored the Live channel offerings I noticed ads for the premium pay channels like Showtime, Epix, HBOMax. And I thought, wow, this is great. I'll be able to access all my Roku subscription channels from a single app. But, my subscription pay channels are not in the TV guide line up.

So, my question is should I be seeing a Live line up for my Showtime, Britbox, etc. within the Live tv guide, or is that my own wishful thinking? Do I still need to watch through each individual channel?

Thanks, Elaine
