How do I Transfer Channels to new device

Roku advised me that I needed to get a new device in order to support some of my apps. I have received and activated Express+. How do I get access to things like ESPN, ESPN +, Hulu, Netflix, etc which I have active subscriptions too?  Thanks for any help you can give me.

Thanks for the inquiry.

If your previous device had active subscriptions to all of the channels you have listed, all you need to do is link your new Roku device to your Roku account, and sign into those channels with your authentication information.

Will this transfer work with Spectrum TV, which is no longer allowing downloads from the ROKU store?

Re: Upgrade device to Express 4K+ Spectrum?

I had to upgrade my Roku as it would no longer play nice with my Wifi.  Install was fine but how do I transfer my Spectrum TV app to the new device since it is no longer downloadable??

@jarob99, if you had it on your old device and you linked your new device to the same Roku account (check the email addresses under Settings->System->About) it should be installed automatically.  If it wasn't, you'll have to contact Spectrum and they'll give you a code to install it.
