my job will take me away from the US and will be leaving and working in Turkey.  Will I be able to use my Roku Stick In Turkey?

Re: Roku international use?

You should be able to, but the content you can view may be quite limited. Many channels have geographical limitations. The IP you connect through will give your location, so you may only be able to see the channels available in Turkey. Plus the location of the IP you used when you set up your account may impose some limitations as well that may keep you from even downloading the channel apps for non-US channels.

Re: Roku international use?

Is it the location of the IP you used when you set up the account or the IP that you are connecting from when streaming that matters?

Thanks for the inquiry.

It's important that you make sure to create a setup a Roku account in the region that you are going to be using the device in as channels may not be available on your device in a given location, based on each channel provider's discretion.
