Initial setup of Roku Premiere on a laptop not a tv

Jump to solution

I recently purchased a Roku Premiere. I can't setup because my tv broke. Can I do the initial setup on my laptop not a tv so I can stream from my laptop? None of the Roku plugs fit into any USB port on my laptop or modem.

You must have a monitor/TV with an HDMI port.

Premiere's USB port is used only for powering the Roku.
