Re: Can I access over the air channels I receive from an antenna with my roku streaming stick?

My ROKU doesn’t have a TV setup link.

Re: Can I access over the air channels I receive from an antenna with my roku streaming stick?

@Jandersen001-

No.  Roku devices are designed to display data received over an internet stream.  They have no tuners to handle over the air signals from a TV antenna.

Connect your antenna to the antenna jack on the TV.  You'll then have to do a channel scan on the TV so it can locate your available stations.  

Switch your TV input back and forth between its antenna/tv setting and the HDMI port to which your Roku is connected, depending on which you want to view at the time.

Thank you, but I have a ROKU TV, there is no option to go to antenna. It only has the ROKU remote.

You have a Roku TV connected to a Roku streaming stick?  Or are they not connected to each other?

Thanks for your reply. My question was not stated right. I have a Roku tv, no Roku stick

@Jandersen001, you definitely confused people by mentioning a stick if you have an actual Roku TV.  You should have "Live TV" under Settings->TV inputs.

There must have been an auto complete I didn’t see, I thought I noted it was a ROKU TV, not a stick.  Unfortunately I do not have a “TV input” in settings. There is a “Live TV” app, but it has over 1200 channels, none of which are my local channels.  Thank you for your help!

Re: Can I access over the air channels I receive from an antenna with my roku streaming stick?

I’ve never owned a Roku TV. But based on this support page, I think doing a Settings > TV inputs > Live TV > Hide streaming TV channels might help.

Have you already scanned for channels?  I believe that happens when you do: Settings > TV inputs > Live TV > Set up input. 

Also, there is this thread from a few days ago that might still be affecting you.
