@vincyinatlanta 

Thanks for the inquiry.

Please be aware that Channel availability/access on Roku devices will vary from region to region. A Roku device will work in any location, however, channels may not be available on your device in that location, based on each channel provider's discretion. For more information, you'd want to contact any specific channel/service provider to inquire further about whether they offer their channel/service on the Roku platform in your region. 

In addition, if you have a Roku account in one region, you may need to create another Roku account in the event that you travel to another region.


Thanks,
Danny

Planning to travel to Bahamas the end of the month.

Danny, could you be a little more specific what to expect if I carry my Roku stick on the trip?

Thank you

Hello @Bru53

Thanks for reaching out. 

We don't directly sell or market Roku devices in Bahamas, therefore, we do not have a specific list of channels that would be supported in that region. But in general, Netflix and YouTube tend to be available and work in most locations. Other channels may not be available, due to service limitations or geo-restrictions.

As mentioned by @RokuDanny-R above, we'd recommend reaching out to any specific channel provider that you're interested in to see if they offer their channel on the Roku platform in Bahamas.

I hope this helps!


All the best,
Kariza
