Roku Stick & Roku TV have the same apps?

Jump to solution

I have a Sharp Roku TV and a Samsung TV.
If I get a Roku Stick for the Samsung, will the same apps be available on the Samsung using the Roku Stick that are available on the Roku TV?

i.e. does a Roku Stick = a Roku TV app-wise?

Thanks.

All current Roku devices support the same apps.

Some older devices, including older Sticks, may not support certain apps. Everything from the last 5 or so years though, everything is supported.

Oh, and on those older devices where an app might not be supported, it's the app developer that determines whether or not to support those devices, not Roku.

Just to clarify...

Your Roku channel apps are attached to your Roku ACCOUNT.  Any Rokus you have linked to this same account will receive these same channels.  Add or remove a channel on one, you add or remove on all.  As mentioned above, the only exceptions are some older devices that cannot install or run channel apps that require the advanced capabilities of newer units.
