TBS and TNT logos

Two of cable’s top entertainment networks have made their way to the Roku platform! Live streams and on demand content from TBS and TNT are now available on Roku streaming players and Roku TV models in the U.S.

Customers who subscribe to TBS or TNT through a participating cable, satellite or telco provider can access live East and West streams of the TBS and TNT. That means you can watch popular TBS shows including Full Frontal with Samantha Bee and CONAN and TNT shows such as Animal Kingdom and Good Behavior live! Most TV series will be available to subscribers on demand the next day.

    What about Trutv?

  • chuck_fu

    I guess you can’t sign in if you have an online streaming package like PlayStation Vue yet.

  • Devin Serpa

    Please stop posting about cable and satellite locked apps. These have nothing to do with cord cutting because to use them you need to have a “cordded” subscription.

    • Has Roku ever claimed to only be for cord cutters? Remember many cable subscribers are also subscribers of Netflix and/or Amazon Prime.

      However, it would be a reasonable request to ask Roku to make separate categories in this blog for channels that don’t require a cable/satellite subscription and those that do.

      Ps Bue might give you login creditiinaling and maybe dtvn

  • Devin Serpa

    I don’t get it if I have a subscription to get these channels through cable or satellite, why would I use a Roku to watch them?

    • Some people may have a Roku attached to a TV that does not have a cable/satellite box attached. Also some people really dislike having to use the input/source button on their TV remote.

    • Phuq_Me

      So i’m not paying $100 a year in a box fee on each of those tvs

    • Siofra

      To watch at a different time than broadcast

    • Stacey

      If you have satellite tv and it’s raining outside, which means no picture.

    • shelwood

      Also, you can use your Roku in hotel/motel/dorms, so you can watch when not at home.

  • James Wootton

    Loosing connection to itv on UK channels. Have to come out of the channel group and go back in and reopen itv this is annoying when viewing

    • Perhaps you would be better off posting on the forums: https://forums.roku.com/ or contacting ITV directly.

    • Leslie Lane

      Yes there seems to be a problem with the UKTV channel. No point in contacting ITV as I don’t think this streaming channel is strictly legal (here in Canada). The UKTV channel on Roku is/was offered by the Filmon.TV channel which now wants a subscription fee, but their website is confusing. I think they want us to buy their expensive steaming box. I loved watching BBC and ITV and will miss it. The new Roku offering BritBox isn’t offered in Canada, tell us why Roku.

      • Why would Roku know why a company chooses to offer their content in one country but not another? In this case, it probably comes down to content licensing though.

        Is Acorn available in Canada? They also have British shows.

  • Devora Wharton

    Ugh no more with the if you have a box you can get…… If I wanted cable I would still be getting it. Just add the channels you can.

  • jaybarrow

    Is Season 1 of Animal Kingdom not available to stream? I only installed this TNT channel on my Roku in order to stream Animal Kingdom since DIRECTV has had major issues with their streaming service. I’ve been waiting and watching for this channel for forever to be available and now that it is the only reason for using it has become pointless I have no reason to keep it.

  • Theresa Amos

    I thought TNT and tbs were going to be used by me on my Roku.When I loaded both you needed to be a cable or satellite subscriber to unlock them.I live in a rural area where cable doesn’t run and l can’t afford satellite that’s why I have a Ruku but what’s the use of I can’t get them without one or the other. ?I AM BUMMED! YEAH THANKS ROKU

    • I hear your disappointment, but these Roku channels are clearly marked as requiring a cable/satellite subscription (although it’s easy to overlook that note). The cheapest way to get TNT and TBS is via Sling Orange for just $20/month.

      Roku is just a platform (in the same way that FireTV and Apple TV are also platforms). Having one doesn’t guarantee you free access to any specific channel/network, TV show, or movie.

    • I apologize. They are not clearly marked but they should be. I don’t know whether Roku or the channel developers are responsible for that.

  • Richard Heinze

    • Deborah Flint

      And obviously you don’t know how to type in English either.

  • Karen Presley Dawkins

    My ROKU is driving me batty. I authenticate my cable and get “approval” to use the channel, but then it won’t load. How do I debug it?

  • Angel Huertas

    The Live feature of both isn’t working for me. It just stays stuck in Loading bar.

    • Jared Wills

      Same here. My Roku TV freezes when trying to watch live.

  • shelwood

    I had been using and enjoying these channels since they were added. However, in the past couple days, the TNT channel completely crashes my Roku when I try to use anything other than the NEW area. Just arrowing over to “Shows” causes my Roku to completely freeze and requires a hard reboot (unplugging). The TBS channel still works fine, but I really miss having access to TNT. Will they be fixing this glitch soon?

    • Nancy

      I agree, watching a current episode of a show freezed up my Roku and I had to reboot. It’s impossible to go back to the point where you left off even if you suffer through a bunch of ads. There’s no way to fast forward in sections. Poor app!

  • Elmer G Bennett

    The only reason i have Roku is to get away from cable and satellite. What a disappointment

  • Felfel10

    I like Roku. I have Sling TV, which is a telecom provider. Therefore, I can watch both TNT and TBSnot only on Sling TV, but on TNT and TBS channels as well. It might be a waste, but I can by SLING and go directly to the other channels quicker. And I don’t know about anybody else, but I do not miss paying Charter $200 a month. I don’t miss paying $150 to dish network. Like it, love it, love it. With Sling, I can pick and choose whatever channels I want for $25.00 + internet bill! You do the math. We also have Netflix, but my daughter pats for that……..FYI……..there are plenty of mobile apps that you can watch these shows and movies for FREE! A lot of people are getting hip. Sooner or later, Netflix, Sling TV, HULU, Amazon, and others will start to lose money.

  • Elias Bueno

    The big deal that cable TV operators have not yet seen is to allow “A La Carte” channel subscriptions to those who have Roku at reduced prices

  • jbbarr74

    I am glad TNT & TBS have offered Roku Channels, I do have a minimal cable subscription with these channels, But Only Have 1 cable box in the home, and 3 Roku Boxed, so I, or another room wants to watch these channels, they are available. HOWEVER, what is driving me up the bloody wall is, why, when I want to watch one of their shows, movies, or specials, I HAVE TO SIT THROUGH 9-15 SETS OF COMMERCIALS EACH TIME….That is more than Live Tv. ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS …

  • MrsN

    I use a Roku. I downloaded the TNT app, went through the authentication process, I got the this message “You have successfully authenticated with the provided registration code. You may proceed with using your Roku.”
    But the app never gets the message and I can never “sign in”. What do I do?
