Use app for steaming, not as remote

Whenever I select the app on my iPhone it functions as a remote. How do I stream on my iPhone rather than using the app as a remote only?

Re: Use app for steaming, not as remote


Thanks for the inquiry.

The Roku mobile app will allow your to control your Roku device as a remote and allow you to stream The Roku Channel on your mobile device.

To access The Roku Channel on the mobile app, select Roku Channel on the bottom panel of the mobile app.

For more information about The Roku Channel with the mobile app, visit our Support page here: How do I get The Roku® Channel?
