Is there a way to get local news from different parts of the country with roku or sling?

IE. Living in Massachusetts, trying to get local news from San Antonio, or Los Angeles

  1. Maybe. Go to the Roku channel store to see which local news apps are available. There are more and more of these all the time, and local news apps don’t require a cable log in.

    Also, if you have local VPN, you may be able to launch the NewsOn app to view local broadcasts. I use it to view ABC news in the Bay Area (on Roku).

    Sling offers international packages, but lacks local channels.
