can't watch local chanells on stream in my home

I can not watch local channels online in my home on my own wifi.  I tried with my computer, my phone or my tablet.  I have rebooted the router a couple times and uninstalled the apps on the devices a couple times and nothing works.  i would like to be able to watch this outside on my deck.  how do i get this fixed?

Re: can't watch local chanells on stream in my home

I called them.  They were unsure why and could not fix it while i was on the phone but turned it into a ticked.   They said it was either my subscription did not allow it or it was an issue with their system.  they created a ticket to look further, and an hour or so later, I checked it and it is now working.  So thanks for the help!!
