My Roku thinks I’m in Louisiana

The commercials that come up when I’m watching the Hulu app and Newsmax app are from Louisiana but I’m  actually in Memphis, TN. Is there a place where I can change the local location?

Re: My Roku thinks I’m in Louisiana

Hi @Peter-R,

If you want to update the name and location of your Roku streaming device after the initial setup process, you can do so from your Roku account or the Roku mobile app.

How to update the name and location of your Roku device:

  • Go to my.roku.com on your computer or smartphone.
  • Sign into your Roku account if prompted.
  • Go to My Linked Devices.
  • Select the Pencil next to the name or location you wish to change.
  • Follow the prompt and enter the new name and location.
  • Select Update to save changes.

For more information about how to update the location of your Roku device, visit our Support page here: How to update the name and location of your Roku device | Official Roku Support.

Warm regards,
