Switching between Roku TV’s

I have multiple Roku Tv’s in my house. I would like to be able to easily switch between rooms when watching a show. Is there an easier way to send the show I am watching onto another Roku TV on the same network when I am ready to change rooms (ex living room to bedroom)?  I cannot find anyone asking this question. I seem to always have to turn on the tv in the other room, open up programming, find the show, and start again. There has to be an easier way. I used to be able to do this with on demand through direct tv.

Re: Switching between Roku TV’s

On the Roku, this would be a feature the channel owner has to have programmed into the channel app.   Some will give you the option, when you select the program on the channel, of resuming the playback, but others don't track this on your account and your only option is to start at the beginning.

Re: Switching between Roku TV’s

If you use the roku remote app on your phone, when you switch the device it controls it will power that TV on, and in the bottom right corner of the 'remote' control view there is an icon for 'channels' that will have the most recently used channels where it is easy to select them.

Alternatively, if you have an amazon echo device you can configure Alexa to control at least one of them with voice commands to power on and select (some of) the channels.
