How to transfer from Firestick to Roku

Jump to solution

I want to change from using a Firestick to using a Roku Ultra. How do I transfer my streaming services to Roku Ultra and maintain any special offers? For example I subscribe to Paramount+ with the first year 50% off. This represents $50 to me so I would like to keep that discount.

How did you log in to Paramount Plus on your Fire device? Can you use those same credentials on the Paramount Plus Website? If so, just use them on the Roku app.

Same for all the apps.

Did you subscribe to Paramount+ directly on the paramountplus.com website?  If so, you should be able to log into your existing Paramount+ subscription on any platform for which Paramount has created an app.

If you subscribed via a 3rd party platform like your Amazon Firestick, however, your subscription likely is accessible only on that 3rd party platform.  Paramount may not recognize your subscription when on a different platform because your subscription is not with Paramount but with the 3rd party you signed up with.  The same situation exists with most other premium subscriptions.  The convenience you gain in consolidated billing brings with it a loss of flexibility.

Thank you very much for your response. I'm new to streaming but I have a Paramount+ login so I expect that will work.
