I've been pondering for a while what media streaming device to get and I've reduced it to Chromecast and Roku. Now Roku seemed to fit my needs better (having a remote for instance) but there's an issue: I live in the Netherlands. I saw that I could order it from Amazon UK but from my Google search, it seems the geolocking of apps could be a problem, so I was hoping someone in the Netherlands could tell me of their experience and maybe confirm the following apps work:
Amazon Prime Video (it's a French account but I access the Dutch catalogue here)
Thank you for your answer (I originally posted this on Reddit, looks like someone put it here as well to get more answers, thank you!).
When you mean not all content, you mean for these apps, the catalogues would just be the one in the Netherlands? This is of course perfectly fine, I currently access those same catalogues via an old computer, I just wanted to upgrade my setup.
I purchased a TV with the Roku app and Disney plus and prime video are not available; only Netflix. When I goto download them I get a message saying they are not available in my location, but there is no issue downloading the apps onto my Samsung smart TVs.
Please be aware that channel availability/access on Roku devices will vary from region to region. A Roku device will work in any location, however, channels may not be available on your device in that location, based on each channel provider's discretion. For more information, you'd want to contact any specific channel/service provider to inquire further about whether they offer their channel/service on the Roku platform in your region.
