Sports apps,TV & Movie apps not working???

I have found that sports, TV & Movie apps requiring activation with cable provider are no longer working.   Staying  that "your subscription does not  cover this programming"  or words to that affect when they did  just days ago and now find myself locked out as a result.  Anyone else having this problem or know how to rectifying it.  Oh BTW, no change had been made in subscription to Cox.

      Actually I have been running these apps for years without problem but in the past 2 weeks all these apps have stopped working.  Apps included are Foxsportsgo, Foxsports, Foxnow, ESPN, NBC, ABC, NFL Network, and TNT, all requiring a activation code to connect with Cox.  None of them work.  I can get ESPN+ because it does not require activation only a subscription, but it will not give me any regular ESPN content.  The best I get is "This Network is not included in your current television subscription."  Even though I get the channels on my TV.  Says contact  provider which I have tried and all I get is evasive answers on online chat and disconnections when I tried to call.  I don't know what gives with this.  Something has happened in last 2 weeks and I am not getting any answers.
