No live tv in vacation home?

I brought my roku from home to an airbnb. Roku is saying it is not in our home area, so live tv is not available. I thought you should be able to access everything on roku when traveling?

Re: No live tv in vacation home?


Roku devices (as opposed to RokuTVs) have no antenna inputs and can't receive local stations directly.  So any locals you get with a Roku device have to be through a streaming channel app that relays your local stations.

You might get some help via Settings > System > Zip Code, but I doubt it.  You'll probably need to check with whatever app you're using about this.
