Help & troubleshooting for channels on your Roku device, including adding/removing channels, logging in to, authenticating, or activating a channel, channel-specific playback issues, assistance contacting channel publishers to report issues, and adjusting channel-specific settings.
Thanks for the note. Each channel provider can determine which Roku devices their channel (app) will support. In general, if you search the channel on your Roku device in Streaming Channels, and it doesn't appear, it may not be supported.
You'll need to contact any specific channel provider directly to inquire further about availability/compatibility on your Roku device, and share your feedback or requests. You can reach Apple support here: https://www.apple.com/contact/
I have a similar problem with a three-year-old Sharp Roku TV that is apparently incompatible with Apple TV+. Apple support pages and user forums refer people back to Roku for the answer, so searching for a solution has been a circular journey. It seems like neither company is willing or able to explain what aspect of Apple TV+ requires more recent hardware than Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, and countless other streaming services.
I'm completely with you exit2lef. I've been given the run around from both Apple and Roku about why my 2-year-old TCL RokuTV isn't compatible with a major app like AppleTV Plus, yet works with every other app out there.
Do we even know if there are other apps that don't work? Is it a singular Apple TV Plus thing?
bad answer, don't side step i have a hisense 40" hd 1080p that won't support apple tv either, its not that it won't it could if you wanted it to with a update. so why not tell us why the real reason. i have a ultra roku box and its there so why not 1080p. you can get it on any tablet or apple non retina display. so why its just you guys roku/apple drawing a line in the sand. so your gonna make me buy a new tv or and this is really stupid buy a roku ultra and hdmi it into my roku tv so i can stream apple tv. shake hands with apple and let us that bought your hd 1080p only tv's. stream apple tv.
