Adding A Second Roku Device

Jump to solution

Good day,

my roommate and i decided last week to drop xfinity cable to just have the internet through them. this will save us just over 20 a month. we have one roku and love it, and ordered a second one for the living room. my questions are: 

can we use the same account for both? 
if so can we be logged into both at the same time? 
if so can we view different content on each at the same time?

thanks in advance.

Yes, you can have multiple accounts with one Roku account.. just know that the channels that get installed and deleted are synced on multiple boxes. If you don't want this, create a separate account.

Also, depending on the service you're using, you may or may not be able to watch the same channel simultaneously- it depends on the terms of the service/channel you're using (Netflix and Hulu have restrictions). You will have no problem playing DIFFERENT content, however.
Yeah, I got some Rokus.

How do you get the Roku that was moved to the new location to stop controlling the TV in the original location?

Background:

I have a new Ultra that replaces a Roku 3. I moved the Roku 3 to another room/TV. The remote for the Roku 3 controls the Ultra in the other room.

Thanks!

I found this, but haven't ever tried it.  Let us know if it works.
