adding channels

High I'm staying in South Africa so I have Roku Premiere. My problem is that I cant add most channels like F1 and other big channels. The only good channels that I can add is YouTube, Netflix and Apple TV+, the rest of the channels have poor content or no content at all, I have tried to look for solutions online and only got the VPN solution. IS it advisable?

Re: adding channels

Hi @Langacoza,

Thanks for reaching out to the Roku community!

Please be aware that channel availability/access on Roku devices will vary from region to region. A Roku device will work in any location, however, channels may not be available on your device in that location, based on each channel provider's discretion. 
For more information, you'd want to contact any specific channel/service provider to inquire further about whether they offer their channel/service on the Roku platform in your region.
Let me know if you have any other questions, and have a good day!
