Roku app cannot be installed on new Samsung TV

Hi all,

I bought a new Samsung Tv and the Roku app is no longer available. I had 4 older Samsung models with the Roku app installed. When I search Roku I can only find the Roku channel, which doesn't have all the app from the Roku app.


I really like the Roku app because it is synced in all devices I connect to. Don't tell me that newer Samsung models do not support Roku app anymore, because that would be a bummer!

Re: Roku app cannot be installed on new Samsung TV


I have exactly the same problem. I solved it by purchasing a Roku Stick (about $50.00) and plugging it into my new Samsung TV. You can try this by temporarily moving a Roku stick from one of your other TVs.
