If a channel now streaming on a new Roku device is updated by the provider will the Roku device automatically update it?

What do you mean by "now streaming"? If you mean while you are actively watching a stream from this channel, then no it won't automatically update at that moment. It should be updated the next time your Roku checks for updates. My Roku does this once a day, as long as it is powered up.

You can also force a complete system and channel update check via Home > System > System update > Check now.
