Just tried to log into the Fox News app and it kicked me out and required me to reregister but when i go to the Foxnews.com\activate page there isn't a Charter or TWC listing on provider. What is the deal?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Are you using the Fox News app or the website? The app just let me sign in on my iPhone using Charter Spectrum as the provider.
On a roku or firestick with the app. It gives you a code to enter into the foxnews.com/activate page and there are tons of provider options to validate the code but there isn't a spectrum or TWC provider option to even get to. Go here and you can see what I mean. Select either Roku or Fire TV and the list of providers appears. No Spectrum or TWC option
For the Fox News App you would want to choose the Charter/Spectrum option.
The partner app page tells me Fox News is not supported on Roku, Samsung TV, Apple TV or XBoxes https://www.timewarnercable.com/en/apps.html
I do see that Fox News is available on Spectrum TV App and website both in and out of home.

It can't be activated if you can't get to the provider login to activate it. It won't work on Firetv because when i enter the activate page http://www.foxnews.com/activate and select FireTV there isn't a Spectrum or Charter provider to select to activate. It was working before Fox News updated their app because i watched it. Looks like an oversight but it needs to be fixed by someone
The Fox News application is only supported on :
It is not supported on Apple TV® | Kindle Fire | Chromecast | ROKU® | Samsung Smart TV | Xbox 360® | Xbox One™ | PlayStation 3 | Fire TV| Fire TV Stick | PlayStation 4 or Android TV
Each of the applications on this page Exclusive Spectrum Apps & Partner Apps will tell you specifically what platforms it can be used on with your subscription to their channel through TWC/Spectrum.
That is not correct. I have watched the Fox News app on firetv and roku tv's for years. If it is now not supported then that is new and that is not an acceptable answer. It needs to be remedied or i will switch to a provider that does support it. Ridiculous that it isn't supported. Fix it.
Julia, Are you saying that FoxNews will not work on Apple TV because Spectrum has only licensed it for App Store, Google Play and watching online? In other words, if we want to watch FoxNews or any of the other channels listed on the link you sent, Spectrum only supports the linked platforms for each channel?
