Re: Watch on ipad

You can only watch The Roku Channel itself on a non-Roku device.  If any of the streaming services you use have an iOS app then you can install it and use that to watch.  You'd need a separate app for each service unless that service is available via The Roku Channel, but to be honest I don't know how/if that works.

I know zero about anything Apple, but if there's an HDMI input adapter you can get for your iPad then you could possibly use it as a display for a Roku device.

Re: Watch on ipad

I think you are correct on all counts. Not having tv for a couple of days isn’t actually a bad thing...

Apple does have an HDMI adapter for the iPad, but it's an output not input device. You can put your iPad display up on a larger screen, but you can't feed anything into the iPad display.
