To connect, you need a remote. The app won't work until you're connected.
So, how to proceed depends on which device you have. If it's a Stick, you'll need a Voice Remote ($20) or Voice Remote Pro ($30). You can find those at Walmart, Best Buy, Target, etc.
If it's a set top box, you can get a cheap (under $10) universal remote from most any place, as long as it lists Roku on the box as a compatible device. Family Dollar, CVS, Walgreens, Walmart, Target, Best Buy, etc.
If it's a Roku TV, same as Stick applies.
