Sorry you can't, Roku TV's are Bluetooth receivers only, just like your speaker. It needs something that transmits Bluetooth, which no Roku does.

@SandyM1-

@Tivoburkee is correct.  Roku Tvs typically do not have Bluetooth transmitters.

Does the ONN speaker have any other inputs besides Bluetooth via physical input jacks?

What sort of physical output jacks does your tv have?

You. may be able to either:

  • connect the audio output from the tv to a physical input on the speaker via an appropriate cable, or ...
  • connect a Bluetooth transmitter to the tv's audio output and set up a Bluetooth connection between it and the speaker.

@Craig_1, "Non Onn Roku Bluetooth speaker"?  What does this mean?  Is it a Roku wireless speaker or some other brand of Bluetooth speaker?

@123xyz, if you use "private listening" on the Roku mobile app you should be able to use any Bluetooth device connected to your phone.
