ESPN Plus on 2 TV's with Roku devices

I set up ESPN Plus on 1st TV with no problem. I went to second TV & password did not work. Both Roku devices are showing registered on my Roku account. Do I need a ESPN Plus subscription on both TVs?

No. You should be able to log in to your ESPN Plus account in the ESPN app on any of your Roku devices.

Within the ESPN app, Settings (gear icon at top left) > Account Information > ESPN Account

It's a good idea to already be logged in to your ESPN/ESPN Plus account on your browser before starting.

The app will direct you to a Web page to access in your browser. Since you're already logged in, you shouldn't have any trouble. But, if the app won't respond after you enter the code in your browser, you may try reinstalling the app on your Roku. You have to do it this way:

  1. Remove the app
  2. Reboot the Roku
  3. Reinstall the app

All three steps, in that order.

Thanks for the post.

Can you please provide more information about the issue you are experiencing? Are the two devices linked to the same Roku account? Have you verified that the email address in Settings > System > About match? What are the specific Roku model devices that you are using? How did you subscribe to the ESPN+? Did you subscribe through Roku Pay or through the channel provider directly?

With more detailed information, we will be able to assist you further.
