Can I watch my roku channels on the app? How?

I can’t figure out how to watch my Roku channels on the app.  If I have Roku connected to my tv and have added say, ABC, and am able to watch ABC tv shows on the tv using Roku, can I watch ABC shows on the app?  How?  Thx

Re: Can I watch my roku channels on the app? How?

The Roku app for a mobile device is intended to allow you to control the Roku via the mobile device.  It adds remote listening capabilities for Rokus that support this feature.  For the most part, Roku has the rights to stream content to Roku devices, but not to mobile devices.  They can only stream their own The Roku Channel to view on mobile devices.
