Roku and Apple TV app working in UAE

Jump to solution

Hello Community,

I'm living in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and would like to use a Roku streaming stick+ to watch Apple TV content. Can someone tell me if the Apple TV app is working on Roku in UAE? 

Thx

Hi @ahmach98,

Welcome to the Roku Community!

Please be noted that Netflix is working just about anywhere and can be added to the latest Roku devices.

Second, the AirPlay feature is only accessible to those Roku devices sold in specific regions. Since UAE is not an official supported region, AirPlay won't work as well.

Lastly, private listening is a feature of the Roku mobile app that allows you to listen to the audio from streaming channels and live digital broadcast television on the earbuds, earphones, or headphones connected to your phone or tablet however Roku mobile app is only available in Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Columbia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, France, Guatemala, Honduras, Ireland, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Peru, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

Let me know if you have any other questions, and have a good day!

Thanks, 

Mary

@amjaay1981 

Thanks for the inquiry.

Channel availability/access on Roku devices will vary from region to region. A Roku device will work in any location, however, channels may not be available on your device in that location, based on each channel provider's discretion. For more information, you'd want to contact any specific channel/service provider to inquire further about whether they offer their channel/service on the Roku platform in your region. 


Thanks,
Danny

Hi iw3bmaster, 

I plan to buy Roku for 3 primary features

1. Netflix

2. Airplay

3. Private Listening

If these 3 things are available and work flawlessy on Roku Premiere in the UAE, could you please let me know?
