Frequently Asked Questions

1. Why am I am being asked to authenticate with my TV provider to access full episodes on the WE tv app?

Full episodes are offered as a benefit to TV subscribers whose provider offers the full episode service and whose package includes the WE tv channel. We require a TV login to confirm your access. Please note: The WE tv app does occasionally make select full episodes available without requiring login.

2. Which TV providers provide access to full episodes on the WE tv app?

If you are unsure whether you have a username/password for your TV company or you’ve forgotten them, you can recover both by contacting your TV provider via the links listed above. More are being added regularly so please check back if you don’t see your provider on this list. When you click to watch a full episode, you will be offered the opportunity to login using the username/password associated with your TV account. You can also sign in via the main navigation menu.

3. What if my TV provider isn’t listed?

If your TV provider does not provide the full episodes service, please check back periodically to see if they’ve been added. We are currently working on bringing new providers on board.

4. Do I need a TV provider log in to watch video extras on the app?

No, video extras are available without a TV provider log in.

5. Why am I being signed in automatically to my TV provider?

Since we use the same authentication service as other TV apps, your TV provider account may be carried over to the WE tv app for your convenience.

6. Why am I being asked to sign in again?

Your TV provider may ask you to re-verify your account periodically.

7. I logged in with my TV provider username/password but when I attempt to play a full episode, I get an error message that says I am not authorized to view this content. What does this mean?

If you have seen this message, it means that you are either a customer of a supported TV company but not a customer who subscribes to WE tv, your subscription is for Internet only, or parental control settings are blocking this content. Therefore, you cannot access the full episode on the WE tv app. If you believe you have received this message in error, please contact your TV company and confirm that you are subscribing to WE tv.
