Adding channel in roku on smart tv

I have a Samsung smart tv which has the roku app. I would like to add the NFHS network to the roku app. But when I do a search it cannot find it.

Re: Adding channel in roku on smart tv


Having a non-Roku smart TV with the Roku app does not turn your TV into a Roku.  It only gives you access to the free ad-supported content on Roku's own service, The Roku Channel.  There are literally thousands of channel apps that run on Roku, The Roku Channel is just one of them.

For access to other channels that run on Roku, like NHFS, you need a Roku account and an actual Roku device connected to one of the HDMI ports on your Samsung.
