Had the same issue...easy fix. Remove the Channel then Add it agian. Go thru the sign in stuff...When you enter the Comcast ID and PW you have a box that states "Stay Signed In" CHECK THIS BOX. This keeps you signed in when you select other channels on your Roku and then return to the Fox News Channel. This worked for me. Also, if you want Fox Business Channel it is also on the Fox News Roku App when you select "Watch Live". No need to have both apps. Hope this helps.
Sorry it worked and now the easy fix failed!! Getting the same results, the following message is reported:
"Service Provider Issue - Your service provider currently doesn't grant access to this content. Please contact them for more details." Foxnews App on Roku It seems to work on first or second viewing, come back to use again and the message appears. Comcast please fix!!
Each time you remove the channel and go through the whole process it works for that session. Once you leave the error message returns. This happens even after check in the "Keep me signed in" box. Please fix this ASAP!!!
YAY! SUCCESS streaming FoxNews on ROKU with Comcast as provider..
from ROKU home screen click on FoxNews app
Navigate to SETTINGS
Click log out of provider
Exit back to ROKU main wall
Select FosNews again this time navigate to stream live. Click that. It will prompt you to login to you provider account (comcast for me) it will generate a new activation code.
Go to your PC / Laptop or smart phone and goto
http://www.comcast.com/activate (or your provider's activation page)
Enter the new activation code
It will reactivate your ROKU device
then just wait... It may take up to 2 mins but has worked for me usually in 30 seconds or so. Because you were interrupted on your way to a live stream by the login process. it will continue on, to the live stream and Violá !
It's a pain I know but if you're like me and keep Foxnews on all day while you do other things around the house then its worth it.
I hope Comcast fixes this soon but they're not really fans of conservative tv so....
