Jump to solution

Hi there, I am am about to add 2 new TV's to our home and hopefully link them to our existing account.  Do I need to order 2 new Roku streaming devices in order to do this?  Thanks!

Unless the TV's have Roku built-in, then you do need to buy more Roku devices. If you link them to the same account, then they will have the same channel lineup, although the order on-screen is separate for each device.

And to avoid scams, FULLY type in any links seen onscreen. NEVER use Siri/HeyGoogle voice. NEVER start typing then pick the first link that shows up. Here are the two main links:

Main Roku page: https://www.roku.com/

Roku link page: https://my.roku.com/link

I have had a Roku account for a number of years.  The Living Room TV has been linked by Roku Device #1 to the account.  I just added another smart TV and Roku Device #2 and it is now linked to my existing Roku account.  However, when I reviewed the linked devices in my Roku account it only displayed the newest device.  Does that mean my old Device #1 has been dropped from the account?

If it's still working with the installed channels, then it's still attached to your account. You can see the account it is attached to by going to the Settings/System/About menu.
