Customer Question
I get HBO through...

I get HBO through my cable service, but have switched my phone contract. The new phone contract gives me access to HBO through a service called direct TV now. How do I get that set up to use with my ROKU stick?

Technician's Assistant: How's your WiFi signal strength? Can you connect to the Internet using a computer or another device?

I am on a computer right now and have good WI FI.

Technician's Assistant: Have you tried restarting both your digital media player and your router?

I don't really know how to do that. If I do that, will direct TV Now show up on my TV screen?

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Video Expert to know before I connect you?

Not that I can think of.

i did want an answer. As you have already charged me for it. I do believe I should get an answer. Or should I ask first, how much more will this cost?
Electronics Technician: Harry, Customer Service replied 7 months ago

If you go into the ROKU store on your ROKU stick, you can add the channel.

are you saying I need to physically go into the store? I already have HBO and I can access it on ROKU, but I want to stop paying for it on my cable bill (Comcast) and get it for no additional cost through my new phone contract.
Electronics Technician: Harry, Customer Service replied 7 months ago

No, the store on the ROKU stick. There is an app called the store where you can add channels.
