Cable subscription not being accepted

Apps stop excepting my password a few days ago when I log in with directv credentials apps come back with error saying I don’t have access but I do on any other device. Already deleted and reinstalled channels no luck hard reset and sat on the phone with directv customer service for hours this issue has been posted a dozen times and no real resolution posted. How can I fix my cable to app connection on roku tv?

Re: Cable subscription not being accepted


You mentioned removing and reinstalling apps. There is a proper way to do that:

  1. Remove the app
  2. Reboot the Roku
  3. Reinstall the app

Do no skip step 2. Do not do steps out of order.

This may not resolve the issue, but it is a troubleshooting step that should be done.
