Do I need one streaming device for each tv set

I have a Roku 3.  I would like to get another streaming device for another TV.  Do I have to have another device for each TV or is there one product that will work with both TVs.

Re: Do I need one streaming device for each tv set


You can either purchase a Roku device for each TV, or use the same Roku device and simply plug it into the HDMI port of your desired TV.  Roku devices are meant to be portable so can easily swap between TVs. (ie. just remove the Roku device from the Living Room TV and connect it to the HDMI port of the Bedroom TV).

You may need to go into Roku Settings and set up the TV controls (volume, power on/off) if you are using different TV manufacturers, but other than that, you should be good to go.
