Basic question on Roku stick.
I am not very tech knowledgeable, so pardon my ignorance.

Can I watch CBS, FOX, NBC which are basically free channels available on antenna via Roku stick?

Some people might on this question but I am scared of technology.

Each station may require login information when using Roku stick to receive all of their content.

Yes and no. If you have a cable subscription you can download each channel's app and login using your cable provider credentials. If you are "cutting the cord" then some of the app based TV services include those channels in their lineup. Otherwise, your best bet is just a $15 antenna plugged into the TV. As far as will the Roku have access to those channels for free the answer is no (barring any less than legitimate means).

You need to get an antenna and connect it to your TV. Then you can get those networks on the Roku with the app that has the antenna icon

I know this works for TVs with integrated Roku, but can you control the inputs on the TV like that with a Roku stick? Also, that Antenna TV button isn't an app, it just changes to the antenna input.

no, probably not. Going to have to bust out the TV's remote to make that happen. Switch inputs and change channels and all using it.

If you don't have an integrated Roku TV then you can attach an antenna to a middle device like an HD Homerun, Tablo or Amazon Fire Recast that can be used to watch TV via streaming devices throughout your house.
