Requires Cable Provider on TVOne while streaming

I was able to download the TVOne app on my Roku TV, but it keeps asking me to select my cable provider. I don't have a 'cable' provider. I use YouTube tv. I don't know why YouTube doesn't carry TVOne. Anyway, when I add the app to my Roku tv I can only see limited episodes of some of my favorite series. Periodically it will kick me out and request that I select my cable provider!!!

Re: Requires Cable Provider on TVOne while streaming

Well, in the channel store page for that channel, it does say: "CABLE OR SATELLITE SUBSCRIPTION REQUIRED".  And when they say that, there is an implication that its a subscription that includes them.  That is to say, if you're already paying for them via a subscription, then you can also stream them at no additional cost.  If not, then that channel is not intended for you.


Banned but back. Because why not?
