Sling Tv channel not in channel store

Hey everyone. I'm new to Roku and was on my way to adding channels to my list when I noticed there were a few that strangely wouldn't show in the channel store for me. To name a few: 

Sling tv, Pluto tv, and crackle all wont show in the channel store.

My devices is Roku streaming stick +.

Can someone help me figure out why I cant get these?

Re: Sling Tv channel not in channel store

If channels are not available in the channel store when browsing on the device, there's two possible reasons. One is that the channel doesn't work on your device. That should not be the issue with your SS+. The other is that the channel isn't available in your geographical location. Not all channels are available in every country. And it also might depend on where you were when you created your Roku user account. If it was created on one country and you have now moved to another location, your account is still based in the original location. 

So, if you are located in the same country that the account was created, and the device isn't showing a particular channel, chances are that the channel isn't available in your location. Because of licensing restrictions for streaming media, the provider might not be able to legally stream the content in a particular location.
