I have a question that can't find the answer. 

I have 3 separate devices (ultra, express, roku2) in different rooms. 
 
Is there a way that I can manage what apps installs on what device from the same account? 
 
Thank you.

Your channel app choices are attached to your account.  All Roku devices attached to the same Roku account will download and install all the same channels.  Exception: some channels requiring the enhancements found in newer units will not install on older units that can't run them.  The order of the channel tiles in the channel grid is customizable on each device.

If you want a different channel list on one or more units, you'll need to create an additional Roku account using a different email address and linking those units to the new account.  (To link to a new account do a factory reset and set up again from scratch.).

Any premium subscriptions paid thru your original Roku account will not be available on the new account.  Any premium subscriptions made directly with the channel, instead of thru Roku, will be available on both accounts.

  • Roku Streaming Stick, 3600X, Ser 5S56D8240827, wifi - JVC EM37T
  • TCL Roku TV 43S425/C107X, Ser X000001R60KV, wifi
