    I have tried to watch ABC and Cinema Now through Roku on my iPad and it keeps telling me I cannot get these apps outside the United States. I am in Pennsylvania and I bought this iPad here. How do I fix this? I hope someone can help me.

    Try going to Settings>General>Language & Region>Region and make sure it's set to the United States. Let us know if it works for you.

    Thank you for replying SciFan57, but I had already made sure that was the case so that doesn't seem to be the problem.

    You're not using a VPN service, are you?

    Yes, does that make a difference?

    If the VPN server is located outside the USA, it would make your streaming channels think you're located outside the USA and ineligible to receive their services.

    Thanks for letting us know. Did you turn off your VPN?
