Set up a Roku for a friend, I have a cable subscription with ESPN and added the channel to their Roku. Went through the log in process and it worked at my house. My assumption was that it knew my location and that I was on my internet provided by the same provider as my cable and therefore it worked. I assumed once the device was in their home where they had no cable it would not work but it does. Is the eligibility provided purely by my log in information from my cable provider and nothing else?
I ask because I have a Roku that I will be using for travel, if I set up some Roku channels based on my cable providers log in info will they work where ever I go as long as I have wifi?
