Two Roku boxes

Jump to solution

I have an older Roku that is working fine. I want to get another box for the bedroom. Can I use the second box on the same account?  Can I be signed in on both at the same time?

Sure, in bedroom I have roku tv, Roku soundbar, and Roku Ultra all on the same account. Your newer roku might have access to newer channels that won't appear omn your older roku.

Yes, you can connect multiple Roku units to a single Roku account.  Your channels are attached to your account, not to your device, so the new Roku should automatically install all your current channels.  Add/delete from one, you add/delete from all.  Any channel's that require a log in will need to be logged in on the new unit.

You may find some newer channels that won't install on your older unit because it doesn't have the power to run them.
