Can I watch in a browser?

I just bought a TCL TV which has Roku built in and it's very cool.  Can I also watch the same channels on my computer through Firefox now that I have an account?   I'm in Canada.

Re: Can I watch in a browser?

Well depends on what app/channel on the Roku you're talking about. For example, you can watch the Netflix channel on the Roku, and yes you can watch Netflix in your browser in your computer.

Go to the website for the Roku app/channel you're interested in and see if you can view on your computer.

I wanted to watch the Roku channel.  I tried to get it to play, but while I can see thumbnails of the shows, clicking on them doesn't do anything.

“The Roku Channel” only streams on Roku devices.

Actually the Roku Channel is available via browser, but I believe it's US only at this time. One of the Roku admins can probably confirm that.

Yes, that's correct. The Roku Channel on the web is only available in the US currently. Canadian users can access the channel on their Roku device though. 

Canadian Channel Store Link: https://channelstore.roku.com/en-ca/details/151908/the-roku-channel

(Note: This link is only for Canadian Roku users. If you are a US Roku user, please visit the US Roku Channel Store at channelstore.roku.com to view & add the channel.)
