Roku access

Can I access the two streaming channels I am paying for through Roku on my smart TV as well?

For instance I have the Roku set up to my living room TV, but I would like to access BET+ in my bedroom as well. Is that possible?

Re: Roku access

Yes.  Some channels have a limitation as to the number of simultaneous streams per account, so you may not be able to watch it on both devices at the same time, but I can't say for that particular channel.  I don't know how the subscription works for that channel, but if you're paying through Roku then as long as both devices are linked to the same Roku account (the email addresses shown under Settings->System->About should match) then the subscription will be valid on both devices.  If you're paying BET+ directly then you just log in with whatever credentials you have with them and the Roku account doesn't matter.

Re: Roku access

Hi @Tanidave,

Thanks for the inquiry. 

If your BET+ subscription is direct to the channel provider, you will be able to access the subscription on all supported devices. 

For more information about that channel's authentication and functionality, you'll want to contact BET+ support directly to inquire further. Many channels on Roku are developed and maintained by the channel provider themselves. 

Thanks,

Mary
