How do I watch website shows with my Roku Premiere?

Jump to solution

I don't see an internet channel as an option.  Is there something I must do to get one or isn't this even possible?  I want to watch shows from soap2day.com on my TV instead of my laptop.

Roku isn't designed for web surfing. There is one channel in the store that claims to be a web browser, but honestly the Roku user interface would be terrible for web surfing. One of my TVs has a browser, and after trying it once I never bothered again. And that was with a motion activated remote, which almost no Roku players have. 

If you want to display something from a web site, the simplest solution is to connect your computer to the TV with HDMI (assuming your computer has such an output).
