We have tried several times to sign up for the History

Customer Question
We have tried several...

We have tried several times to sign up for the History Channel under Roku; but we cannot get connected to it. How do we do this?

Technician's Assistant: What does your TV screen look like when you try to connect your digital media player? Is there anything at all displayed?

We tried this awhile back. I do not remember. I just want to hook up to it now; but have no idea how to even start.

Technician's Assistant: Is your digital media player connected to the TV, or is it connected to a power outlet?

I will just wait until my husband gets home. We have some type of box, but use an antenna rather than an internet provider.

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

I guess not.
