    I figured I am not going to get the Roku okayed by Fox, being a subscriber to Dish. (FX Now) At least not at this time. I checked and the same issue is with Nat Geo. I looked, and yes as I thought, Nat Geo is also part owned by FOX. So it may be sometime to get either of those on the Roku. I love the Roku, but unfortunately several channels on there need the OK from the provider, as I guess the channel has to protect their provider. I have read of people trying to cut the cable/satellite cord, but that looks impossible if the person wants to continue getting a cable channels on the Roku. We need both. That may change in the future with the viewer being able to purchase the channel directly. I am afraid that is some time off. Fortunately there is still a ton of channels on the Roku that is not on cable or satellite.
