The Roku lets you stream movies and TV shows straight to your TV. Check out some of what it can do below!
Check the catalog to see if it's available.
- Note: our Roku works only with TVs that have an HDMI port.
- Connect the supplied HDMI cable from the Roku into an HDMI port on your TV.
- Insert two AA betteries in to the Roku remote, if they are not already installed. (The remote control does not need to be aimed at the Roku; it just needs to be in the same room.)

- Turn on your TV and select the appropriate HDMI input source. Once you do this, you should see the Roku screen.

- Press the Home button on the remote. Scroll down to Settings, and then scroll to the right to Network.
- If you want to establish a wireless connection, select Wireless and enter your wireless network name and password, if neccesary.
- If you want to use a wired connection, connect an Ethernet cable (not supplied) between the Roku and your router, and select Wired Connection in Network Settings.
