Q. I was thinking of getting a Roku. But before I do, will I be able to get WatchESPN on it? I have Time Warner Cable as my TV provider. -- Sheila, Buffalo New York.

Sheila, for those not familiar with WatchESPN, it's a web site that simulcasts ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, ESPN Desportes, ESPNews, ESPN Goal and ESPN Buzzer Beater. You can tune in all seven channels on one site using your laptop or mobile device (and your TV using such Net TV devices as Roku, Amazon Fire, XBox One and Chromecast.)

online service is also the exclusive home of ESPN 3, which airs games not available on the cable TV channels.

Now, to your question, Time Warner Cable does have the rights to WatchESPN, which means that if you are a subscriber to the ESPN video channel, you will be able to access the online service as well.

That also means
that you will be able to use the WatchESPN app on Roku if you are a Time Warner Cable subscriber and you subscribe to the ESPN video channel.

The cable operator says that to access WatchESPN on Roku, you just need to enter your TWC user name and password to authenticate your subscription.

By the way, you can also get the TWC TV app on Roku, which enables you to watch your live channels and On Demand content using the Net TV box. To learn more about this, click here.
