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.
I just subscribed to Paramount+ through the Roku app on a Roku streaming stick. With the premium subscription, I am supposed to also have local CBS live TV. However, I cannot find any place on the app or on the website that shows live CBS access - all I've found is CBS news stations from big markets, nothing that shows local live CBS feed.
I keep thinking I'm just overlooking something, but if so, it certainly isn't intuitive. Can anyone help me find live local CBS?
Re: CBS local channel via Paramount+ sub through Roku
I don't know if there was an update, but in the app settings there is a Live TV setting. Mine said nothing available, but I was able to select a Check Location box, and that then listed WBBM for me in the Chicago area. I picked that, and now it works.
Does the issue only occur on CBS or across other channels installed on your Roku device?
Many channels on Roku are maintained by the channel provider themselves. Since the issue only occurs on the CBS channel, that's an indication that there's likely an issue within that specific channel that needs to be addressed with an update from them. We indeed recommend contacting CBS Support to report the issue and get help.
