Help & troubleshooting for channels on your Roku device, including adding/removing channels, logging in to, authenticating, or activating a channel, channel-specific playback issues, assistance contacting channel publishers to report issues, and adjusting channel-specific settings.
It appears that Fox News on Roku requires a TV provider login to fully access the channel. Moreover, please note that channels on our platform are managed by the channel developer themselves. We suggest reaching out to Fox News support to report the issue and for better insight on how their channel works on Roku.
Re: why does roku continually lose my auto sign in to fox news, on all devices
I tried submitting information to the "channel developer" using the link you provided. The autoreply I got after submitting the webform was that they do not answer every request but thank me for the submission. So, it's basically a suggestions box with zero follow-up. This is not helpful, so if you don't have an actual contact for the developer than I suggest you stop posting a link to a generic feedback form.
There are now two things this sign-in issue has brought to light. One is that neither Fox News nor Roku support this app. Two, the app seems to function correctly on Apple TV. I know what my next streaming device will be.
This doesn't happen on other devices that are not Roku.
Different devices use different operating systems. And the apps are built in different languages. You can't take an Android TV app and have it just work on a Roku. You have to build it from the ground up.
You can't take a TVOS app and have it just work on a Roku. You have to build it from the ground up.
The apps are not the same.
