Help getting started with Roku devices, including setup, connecting your device to your TV, linking a Roku device to your account at my.roku.com/link, adding channels, subscribing to services, and more.
Re: not sure if it works in rural areas do you have to have internet connection
Yes, Roku streams TV from the internet, so internet access is needed.
By the way, have you checked the alignment of your dish? With digital TV systems, you get a good picture even when the signal is fairly poor, so some people stop aligning when the dish is just barely getting signal, and then a little weather knocks it below the threshold.
