How do you add channels to one device not all of them

I have 5 ruko devices 3 of which only the kids use so I would like to add some apps to only the other 2. When i delete them of the kids devices it deletes them off of all of them.

Only way is to setup separate accounts on the other devices.

Re: How do you add channels to one device not all of them

Hi,

Please be aware that each Roku account stores information about the Roku streaming devices linked to it along with the channels that are installed and purchased, as well as the preferences and account settings.

If you would like different channels on different devices, as @Mazz mentioned, you could consider having separate account for different devices.

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


Thanks,
Danny

Re: How do you add channels to one device not all of them

This is really a horrible solution for parents and is way too much work.  The Roku app on my phone has no problems discerning between all of my different devices, and the OS shouldn’t either.  At the very least, there should be an option to hide a channel when you press the * button on your remote.  Then have an option to unhide channels from the System menu.  You still have loaded channels the same as before, so that doesn’t change.  You’re just allowed to choose which channels are visible on a specific device.
