Help getting started with Roku devices, including setup, connecting your device to your TV, linking a Roku device to your account at my.roku.com/link, adding channels, subscribing to services, and more.
I am from Sri lanka and I bought Roku express 4k from USA from my friend. I didn't know about the region issues. But once activated I figured that I cant add some channels even I am unable to add Amazon prime. What can I do it? Will it never work? Or any other solution?
Roku itself is not supported outside the 17 regions listed in the Country link a the bottom of the Roku home page.
However, that doesn't mean it won't work. Roku allows developers to pick and choose where their apps work. Most developers choose to not allow their apps to work where Roku itself isn't supported.
Some developers do, however. The most notable is Netflix. But many large developers make the choice to not support their apps outside Roku supported regions. Roku does not stop any app from working. The developer codes where the app will work and where the app will not work.
