How to activate Fox News Channel on Roku
Pay TV services that allow their subscribers to authenticate Fox News Channel include major cable and satellite providers like AT&T Uverse, Comcast XFINITY, Cox, DIRECTV, and Verizon Fios, along with dozens of regional and municipal cable systems. Several streaming TV services are also represented, including Playstation VUE, Hulu, and YouTube TV.
To activate the Fox News Channel live stream and full episodes, or to see if your TV provider allows authentication, you will need to follow these steps:
- Install and launch Fox News Channel on your Roku device.
- Select "Settings" from the left-hand menu on the channel's home screen, then select "Log In Provider". Make note of the code provided on that screen.
- Go to www.foxnews.com/activate in a web browser on a computer or mobile device.
- Select your media player (in addition to Roku, Fox News Channel is currently available on Amazon Fire, Android TV, and Apple TV), select your provider in the "Select your provider..." pulldown box, then enter the code from the Roku channel.
- Your browser will take you to a login screen for your pay TV provider. You will need to contact your TV service provider if you don't remember your login credentials.
- After successfully logging in, Fox News Channel will automatically update on your Roku device.
Sorry, but if you don't have a pay TV service, or your service isn't listed, you won't be able to authenticate this channel, meaning you can't watch the Fox News live stream or full episodes of Fox News shows. For more information, see our article TV Everywhere - Why these Roku channels require a cable TV subscription.
