Australian restrictions . No BINGE or STAN. Garbage !!!

I've recently been using a roku2 Telstra TV 4200TL.  .  I was impressed by the  user-friendly interface . Allowing 4G mobile data hotspot connectivity ..  providing access to Netflix ,STAN  ,Binge , prime, Disney plus etc.... As well as multiple apps for free to air TV. 7plus, 9now 10play ,,     .    Then last week  I upgraded to the Roku express 4k+3941x . What a mistake  useless. And it can't even be repurposed as a doorstop as it's too light   .  Unless I cloak my Australian identity with the USA VPN.   The Roku app doesn't work account cost because I don't have a router...      Rant rant rant !! .    Android I'm coming home

Re: Australian restrictions . No BINGE or STAN. Garbage !!!

Roku devices aren't supported in Australia other than those Telstra branded devices.  The two devices use different Channel Stores and as you've discovered not all channels/apps are supported in all regions.  You take your chances when you import a device that isn't officially supported in your regions.

Discussion of VPNs to circumvent regional restrictions isn't allowed here:
