Re: Move roku to another device

Hi,

Thanks for the inquiry.

If you wanted to move a Roku from one location to another, you would simply need to disconnect the device and then reconnect it to the new TV. Please keep in mind, that you would need to change the network information if you are going to using a different wireless network to connect to.

For more information on how to set up a Roku, visit our Support page here: How do I set up my Roku® streaming player or Streaming Stick® (any model)?


Thanks,
Danny

Happy to see its apparently very easy to move your Roku device from one TV to another! I'm curious if I will automatically be logged out of my connected streaming accounts, and have to log back in after moving my Roku? Thanks in advance! 

Sincerely,                                            A very satisfied Roku owner

Re: Move roku to another device

Hi

I moved my Roku streaming stick to a different TV but am having difficulty getting a new activation code. Went to roku/link and it says enter code displayed on the TV but there is no code showing. Tired to star/options button but it is browned out on my screen which does show the normal home screen. Also remote worked for the first boot up but now doesn't as I tried disconnecting & reconnecting. Any ideas ?  TY

Re: Move roku to another device

Simply connecting it to another TV should not require any relinking.

I also tried to move a Roku Stick+ to a different TV (a different band) now the power and volume controls on the Roku remote do not work on the 2nd TV.

Reprogram it for the new tv:

settings> remote & devices> remote> remote in use> program tv> follow the prompts

Re: Move roku to another device

Hi Danny, after moving my roku device to connect to another TV (not on the same wifi), are all the passwords and accounts kept for NetFlix, Now TV etc. or do you have to log-in again ? 

I guess what I am asking is are the individual account details held on each device?

Regards, Ian

Re: Move roku to another device

Hi can you advise whether you had to login again for all your streaming accounts or did roku remember all the details after you moved it to the new tv ?

Moving a device from one TV to another (or even one network to another) shouldn't require re-signing in to any account.
