Switching a subscription to the new Ultra from my 3 ?

I am getting a new Ultra for the front room and moving the 3 to the bedroom.
I subscribe to One America News Network. I won't want that in the bedroom, just the front room.

Is there an easy way to switch that subscription to the new Ultra from the 3?

Are the subscriptions tied to the device? That would be odd.

Is the subscription through OANN directly or is that a subscription through Roku?

Are the Roku devices on the same Roku account?

Not sure. When I log in to my Roku account it shows as a subscription

Through Roku

Are the Roku devices on the same Roku account?
I haven't got the Ultra yet it still in UPS shipping
When I look at my Roku account I can see the subscription

You should be okay then. The subscription is through your account, not tied directly to your device. When you add another Roku to the account, you’ll be able to use your subscription. Just like if you had a Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, or any other subscription.

Ok
Sounds like I will have the same subscriptions show up on both devices then?
Not like have to separate devices, more like two devices looking at the same thing?
Is that right?

Yes.

I'm not sure I understand the question.

With both devices tied to the same Roku account, any app on one device will also be on the other device. Removing from one will remove from the other. Adding to one will add to the other.

Not sure if that answers your question, because I'm not really sure what you're asking.

Yes, because you have to authorize a new device.
