Live guide in app not on tv

Jump to solution

I've been having a hard time seeing so I went on the app and tried to use the live guide thinking. It would show up on my phone or tablet but it only shows on the TV which I can't see from where I'm sitting it would be. Much better to have it in the app and then be able to change the channels on the TV is. That possible.  I don't understand why that's not an option. It would be great for people that have a hard time viewing the TV from where they are sitting if you could just look at your phone or tablet. View the guide on the phone or the outlet and click it and change the channel

Hi @Robz906,

Congrats on your first post in the Roku Community!

We appreciate your effort in reaching out to us. If I'm understanding correctly, you want to access “over-the-air” broadcast channels directly to your mobile devices.

Please be advised that these channels can be accessed via an HDTV antenna connected to the Live TV input on your Roku TV and Roku mobile app does not support this setup.

For more information, please click on the FAQ link here: How to set up the Live TV input on your Roku TV™ | Official Roku Support

We hope we have addressed your question appropriately, but please don't hesitate to let us know if you have any questions or additional feedback.


Best regards,
Mary
