Hooking up a 2nd TV -

I have the first TV hooked up with Ethernet cable to network router. I wish to hookup a new second tv in another room. Do I just plug in another Roku and do I have to setup a seperate account for that to work wireless? 

Once I do for other apps  can I share from the first TV, how is that done?

Re: Hooking up a 2nd TV -

From another newbie -  I installed 2 roku dongles in 2 tv's.  Each required the roku code to pair the remote to the dongle.  then the 2nd tv needed to have whatever aps added and activated ( dang laptop was in another room, so I got a little exercise.  )  But all on the same account.

You can have as many Roku devices on a single Roku account as you wish. Any app added to any device gets added to all devices. Any app removed from a device gets removed from all devices.
