Exchange ROKU Ultra 4640X (2017) with ROKU Ultra 2022

I want to replace my ROKU Ultra 4640X (purchased in 2017) with a ROKU Ultra 2022. However, I have added many streaming channels to the 4640X box (Netflix, Hulu, Prime Video, Disney+, Curiosity Stream, etc.).

How do I go about transferring all those streaming channels from my old ROKU to a new ROKU? Do I have to "re-add" all those streaming channels to a new ROKU box?

Re: Exchange ROKU Ultra 4640X (2017) with ROKU Ultra 2022

If you link any new Roku device to the same Roku account, any channels installed on your old device will be automatically installed on the new device.  You will probably have to authenticate your subscriptions again unless you're subscribed through Roku.  The position of each channel on the Home Screen will be pretty much random, so you may have to rearrange them if it bothers you.

Note:  If you're not sure what the Roku account is on your old device you can check the email address displayed under Settings->System->About.  More than one person has inadvertently created a new Roku account when adding a new device to their household.
