Adding a 2nd Roku - Device Setup

Jump to solution

Can you copy your channels from your 1st Roku to a 2nd new Roku or do you have to add the channels manually to the 2nd Roku?

Thanks,

Russ

All channels from the first roku will show up on second if its on the same account, but it won't be in the same order initially, you'll have move the apps around if you want i set up as first. And of course you'll have sign into each app again too.

if you have an account with a channel (like netflix or youtube),you'll need to log in again.

 

not positive,but any that just gives you an access code link on  the tv,you wouldn't need do it again.

they link you to your roku account.

So I have to enter new access codes for each channel?

It's kind of like starting over then, correct?

So everything copied over to the 2nd roku stick minus xfinity app. On the internet, it shows installed. On the 2nd roku itself, it says channel install failed, could not add. Any ideas?

It's newer than the 1st Roku, but both Roku Ultras.  I did have to rearrange the icons and log in to each channel manually.  A real pain.  Russ

3500x. I have had it a while. I did update it but I guess it may be running old software?
