Roku on a second tv

Just installed a Roku "Premeire" box on my wife's Element"not smart" TV and it is working great.  Want to get our Roku account on our main "smart" Samsung TV but there is no builtin Roku app.  Am I correct in assuming that I have to install a second Roku device on the Samsung smart TV and if so what unit is recommended since it's a "smart TV.  Don't need anything fancy, just access to our Roku account.  Will on of the "sticks" work or should I just use another "Premiere" box.

Re: Roku on a second tv


Thanks for the inquiry.

Please be aware that The Roku Channel will only be available on select compatible Samsung Smart TVs. If your Samsung is not compatible, you would need to purchase a Roku device for that TV. For more information about The Roku Channel, visit our Support page here: How do I get The Roku® Channel?

We have a variety of Roku devices available that will work with you Samsung TV. For a detailed description and comparison of our Roku devices, visit our Support page here: Roku Streaming Players
