Are there any other cable or satellite subscriptions required channels besides NESN?

Jump to solution


It would be nice if Roku had some kind of notice saying that you need cable or satellite for that channel before I waste my time going upstairs and navigating to a website and putting in a code before being told I need cable or satellite. A little warning would be nice. A little popup saying "cable or satellite subscription required" would be helpful and save time

Yes. ABC. NBC. Fox. ESPN.

There are many.

Those can also be authenticated via a streaming service (YouTube TV, Hulu With Live TV, etc). But not every channel can be.
