Use roku services on Nvidia shield tv

Hi All,

Before suscribing to roku streaming services, I would like to know what is required in term of device.
Do I need roku device in order to use roku streaming services?
Currently I already have Nvidia Shield tv device and I would like to know if I can suscribe to roku streaming service and use it on my nvidia device.

Thanks for your help

Roku is not a streaming service. It is hardware or software built into some TV's used to install apps from other services. Roku does have a free channel, but you need a Roku to use it.

You do have to sign up for a Roku user account (free), but a credit card, though asked for, is not required. But the Roku is just another streaming device, just like the Shield is.
