Different Apps on different Roku Devices

Jump to solution

Have two TVs with Roku devices.  In setting up #2 last night found it had the same apps as #1.  When I deleted the apps I did not want from #2, they were deleted from #1 too.

How do I keep the apps on each TV separate?  Thx.

It can't be done if you attach both devices to the same Roku account. To have different channels, you need separate Roku accounts. That doesn't mean that you can't access the same channel on different devices with the same credentials. Depending on the channel, you might not be able to use them on both at the same time, but that would apply regardless of the Roku account used.
