Multiple Roku devices in different rooms with one Account.

Jump to solution

I am new to multiple Rokus. We are moving into new house and I have purchased Rokus for each room. When setting them up I understand that I can have them all connect to a single account or I can create individual accounts for each?

I need clarification. If I have all the Rokus connected to ONE account, can we watch TV in separate rooms at the same time? Or by having one account, only one can be viewed at a time.

Each device gets its own stream so they can view the same or different material, but some paid subscription accounts have a limit on how many simultaneous devices they will stream to at one time.  

The standard Netflix HD subscription, for instance, supports two streams at a time, but their Ultra HD subscription supports four.

Hey @xparrot

Thanks for the post.

Even your Roku devices are connected to a single account, you can still view or watch different channels/contents at the same time. The purpose of linking them to just one account is to make sure that you won't be double-billed for any subscription that you will sign up for. 

If you need help linking your Roku to your email, you can visit this Support article: How do I activate or link my Roku® streaming device?

I hope this helps.

All the best,
Kariza

Okay, so I should set them all up to connect to the same account then. That way my saved shows will be on each Roku.
