Streaming made simple.

Roku players make streaming a snap. Just connect to your wireless network and your TV. Create a Roku account to easily sign up for free trials, subscribe, rent or buy. An intuitive interface, a simple remote, and a convenient mobile app for iOS® and Android™ make it easy to find what you want to watch.

Unbiased search across top channels.

From the latest movies and shows to cult classics, find where your favorites are free or cheapest to watch with unbiased search across top channels. Search through a wide selection of paid or free channels — by actor, title, or director — using your Roku remote, Roku mobile app, or voice search.

Follow your favorites.

With Roku Feed™, you can follow movies, TV shows, actors, and directors and get automatic updates when new content is ready to stream or when the price drops.

Take it on the go

Move your Roku player to different TVs in your home or take it to a friend’s house. Hotel & Dorm Connect* even lets you stream on the go, in your dorm or hotel room. Just bring your Roku remote, power adapter, and your smartphone, tablet, or laptop with a web browser to connect your player, sign in, and start streaming.
