Those channels that you subscribe to via a subscription to another service (cable, satellite, etc) may periodically require you to login with that service's credentials to confirm your subscription is still in force.
  • Roku Streaming Stick +, 3810X, Ser YH0059427035, wifi LivRm - Samsung UN55ES6100
  • Roku Streaming Stick, 3600X, Ser 5S56D8240827, wifi BedRm - JVC EM37T
  • Roku 3, 4200X, Ser 4124C7087583, wifi GstRm - Sanyo DP26640

This is likely beyond Roku's control and it may change at any time given the policy of the third party service.

I too had this question. Thank you for the information. It would be helpful if Roku could develop a database of approved channels so we didn't have to do this, but other than this it works great. Thanks.
