Cannot view on iPhone through app. Why?

How come I can’t stream Roku on my iPhone through the app? It keeps telling me that I can’t stream without a connection to a Roku device. I have a Roku TV but when I try to stream on the phone, it will only go to the remote function and control the TV to watch on the TV and not on my phone.  How do I watch the Roku Channel on my phone?

Re: Cannot view on iPhone through app. Why?

To watch The Roku Channel on the phone requires a separate app, “Roku Channel: Movies & Live TV.”

The Roku App can only play the Roku channel on a Roku device.

Thank you, Remaker! 

While it appears that the viewer app is not available in my region (Canada) (very disappointing Roku), it is great that you were able to provide the link.

I can also keep checking the link to see if Roku gets it together in Canada.

Thanks again, Remaker! 

Wishing all good health and a topflight day!
