Multiple TV's + Roku TV Setup

Jump to solution

Hey, group! So, I have a question! If I get a Roku TV, how do i go about getting Roku on the other two tv's in my house? Thanks in advance!! (one is a smart TV already, but does not have roku, the other just has HDMI ports...thanks!)

To clarify, I have three tv's, want to make one a roku tv, how would i be able to access roku on the other two tv's?

@purek Hi there! You'll need a Roku device connected to any TV that you are wanting to access content via Roku on. Alternately, you could also move your Roku device between the TVs in your house. See more here: https://www.roku.com/how-it-works

 

Thanks,

Tanner

Get two stand alone streamers like Roku Express, Premiere, and Ultra. Or if you prefer a stick, get the Roku Stick +.

Unless you want separate control of adding and subtracting of channels on each roku, then go with different emails. If you don't care if doing one thing on one roku effects all rokus, go with the same email and account on all.

I understand I need a ROKU for every TV and you are saying you need different emails for each set-up to watch the tv's separately-is that correct?   I currently have Netflix and Prime through Xfinity-I do want to add them to the ROKU but does it have to be brand new accounts or can they be transferred to the ROKU.  If I do add-on to the ROKU, does that carry over to all of the tv's in the home or must they each be setup with the add-on and does that cost extra per month.  So for example, I have Netflix on the main tv set but want to set it up in the kids room as well---am I charged double?  Thanks much!

You just have to use the same credentials you used on previous devices for apps like Netflix and Prime, that isn't what was discussing here, this thread is about a roku account. You can use the same email on as many roku as you wish, just know that when you make a change on one roku it happens on all using the same email address. And if you had separate emails and roku account for each roku, you can still use the same netflix & prime credentials on both roku accounts, you would only have to pay for one subscription fee. The Standard Netflix account only allows two devices at a time to view programs, you would get an error message if you tried using a third device.

No you do not need multiple email to set up a new device. When you use your current email it will bring all your apps from the old device to the new one.
