Want to Setup Two Roku Devices with Different Channel Tiles

Jump to solution

We have two Roku devices for our home and want to have different channel tiles appear on each one. However, when we add or remove channel tiles from one device the same channel tiles are added or removed on the other.

We don't want to create a separate Roku account for each device. Is there a way to unsync the Channel Tiles that appear on multiple Roku devices under the same account?

Nope.  Separate accounts is the only option.

I only want certain channels on 1 Roku but it connects both of them.

I have 2 rokus. One in the living room and one in my son's room. I only want certain channels in the bedroom and when I deleted them it deleted them from the living room. How do I make that not do that?

We had to create two separate Roku accounts in order to have different channels in different rooms; otherwise the channels automatically sync across all of the locations.

Thanks for the inquiry.

If you want different channels on different devices without having to delete the channels, we would recommend creating a separate account for each of the devices.

For more information about creating a separate account, visit our Support page here: Do I need a separate Roku account for each of my Roku® streaming devices?


Thanks,

Seems like it would be far more family friendly to add the use of profiles under one account....
