TIP 2: Use your voice to search, launch, pause + more!

The Roku Channel has access to 100 free live TV channels, including news and weather, sports, reality, kids, and so much more. All without spending a dollar.

TIP 4: Use your phone as a remote to control your Roku device.

A common question we get asked is, “Will the remote still work when the device is mounted behind my TV?” Well, the good news is yes since the Roku remote uses both IR and advanced "point-anywhere" technology, but there’s an even cooler option - use your phone! You can download the Roku app on your iPhone or Android device to control your Roku.

The app also mimics the remote when you connect your favorite headset, allowing you to listen to your favorite movie without disturbing anyone around you. You also get access to the Roku Channel, where you can stream movies, TV shows, and your favorite channels on the go. That’s one powerful app!

TIP 5: Connect your phone via Bluetooth to stream your favorite music.

The new Roku Streambar packs big power into a small package. Not only is it a powerful soundbar providing excellent speaker quality, but it also combines the streaming capabilities of other Roku products. If you’re looking for greater sound, you can add a Roku Wireless Subwoofer and Roku TV Wireless Speakers for immersive sound.

Additionally, the Roku Streambar features Bluetooth technology so you can connect your smartphone or tablet and play your favorite music, whether it’s downloaded to your device or streaming from Spotify or Apple Music.
