Installing a Second Streaming Stick+ for a second TV

Jump to solution

I purchased a second Roku Streaming Stick+ for installation on a second TV. What are the installation details so I can use either one with my one account? I'm assuming I can have the one account with both devices and use either one together. I'm also assuming I can use my one account to view both devices streaming the same channel at the same time. Please let me know if this is not so and what details I need to follow during setup to install.

Just set up the second Roku device like you did the first.  If you link it to your existing account which I highly recommend, all of your channels from the first device will also appear on the second stick.  You may have to login to some of the channels to use them.  Please be aware that if you remove a channel from one device it will be removed from all devices linked to that account.  You can view the same channel on both devices at the same time.  Many apps limit the number of devices you can view at the same time often to three.  I have six Roku devices linked to the same account.  All six could be used at the same time but not with the same channel because of limits set by the channel.

Subscriptions typically don't care about the number of devices. They just limit the number of simultaneous streams.

Thanks for the information. I will install soon now.!

I'm assuming whatever subscriptions I will have on my Account will not be charged extra.?? So whatever channels I have on my Account will be available with no extra cost on the second TV.??

NowTV in the UK is one of the few that does charge per device, and also more for 4k and HDR.

Upgraded subscription supports both several more devices and 4k

Sorry to bother you with this question, I am just starting with using streaming.  I believe the answer to my question is yes just confirming it.  I have two answers to the question do I need a separate streaming device for each tv I was told yes but also was told that the Roku Ultra device allow you to use one device and connect the other tv's via WiFi.  

Can you clarify if the Ultra device allows WiFi connection??

Normally, each TV must have it's own device. You could use something like an HDMI switch if you have two TV's relatively near each other and don't mind running cables between them. Most Roku's support RF remotes or even the Roku app on a phone/tablet, so you don't need line-of-sight to control them.
