Is there any regional restriction on this service?

I'm in Asia, Taiwan.

if I order the Roku, can I watch all the service on Roku?

for example, HBO Max, they not service in Asia yet, May I watch it through Roku?

Thanks for the inquiry.

As @renojim mentioned, channel availability/access on Roku devices will vary from region to region. A Roku device will work in any location, however, channels may not be available on your device in that location, based on each channel provider's discretion. For more information, you'd want to contact any specific channel/service provider to inquire further about whether they offer their channel/service on the Roku platform in your region. 


Thanks,
Danny

In short, there are lots of region restrictions.  First, a service has to be available in your region and then that provider has to make it available via Roku.  So it's possible for something to be available via an app on another device or via a web page and it still not be available via Roku.
