Why doesn't Roku list MSNBC as an app I can install?

Jump to solution

Since on several tvs in my house I only watch a small number of the hundreds of stations I get with FIOS, I want to eliminate the cable boxes I don't need. I have both Roku and FireTV devices, and while FireTV allows me to install the MSNBC app, Roku does not appear to allow it. Strange - since Fox News, CNN, and CNBC appear to be available.

Can anyone help here? Given the cost of a FireStick is about 2 months of renting a cable box, I may just replace my Rokus with FireSticks.

NBC makes the apps for the various devices. For Roku, they have an NBC News app that includes content from MSNBC. For a live stream of MSNBC -- or any of the services you listed -- you'll need a live streaming service, such as Sling TV ($35/month).
