How to add cable channel names?

I set up the Hisense Roku tv by downloading the cable channels. After the available 42 channels were added to the live channel guide, I hid the other channels. So that was all good.

Unfortunately, when the channels downloaded (or synced), only the numbers are visible on the guide; the space in the column where “ABC” or “HGTV” is just blank. 


So, how can I get the correct names listed on the channel guide? I am wondering if I can manually input names, or if I somehow need to select something during the setup process.
