limited number of ROKU's running at one time

I got a request to shut off one other Roku in order to use the one I was trying to watch.  The message said that I could only use three Rokus at one time and I needed to shut down one Roku to watch at the location I was at.  We have 4 Rokus in our house and in this case, we had guests over and they were watching the fourth location.  Can we watch more than three Rokus at one time?

Re: limited number of ROKU's running at one time

I don't think there is a limit set by Roku.   But many of your channel subscriptions may limit the number of simultaneous streams they support.  With some, you can pay for a higher tier with more simultaneous streams. My Netflix and Hulu subscriptions both support 2 simultaneous streams.  Prime Video says it supports 3 on an Amazon account.  My Acorn subscription says it only supports 1, but we have viewed different Acorn programs on two Rokus at the same time without difficulty.
