Not entirely accurate. A number of Roku channels require authorization by a TV provider. For example, http://www.rokuguide.com/articles/nick-comes-to-roku says:
... your TV provider must be one that allows access, and you must have a subscription that includes the Nick channel. As of June 2015, AT&T Uverse, Cox, DirectTV, Time Warner Cable, and Verizon FiOS are among the major providers that allow Nick access; Dish and Comcast Xfinity do not
Seriously, who do we complain to about this?
My kids would LOVE to watch the Nickelodeon App on the ROKU, 95% of the content is locked without a valid cable subscription-provider-login.
I've done this successfully on most other apps - but Comcast XFinity appears to be the only cable provider NOT LISTED!
So this is a Comcast issue? I would like to e-mail a complaint, but not sure who is the holdout here, I'm assuming it's Comcast?
Comcast is most likely going to have a fee to use thier app. We should be able to watch the nick jr channel without having to use the comcast roku app. Nick Jr has thier own app that needs an activation code that includes all of the following providers. You will see only one main provider missing. It is quite absurd indeed. Let us watch chennels we already pay for.
