Adding Channels to Your Roku Device

May 18, 2018

Ever since the Roku player launch in 2012, it has made the whole world fond of it and the reason is worth it. This device enables its users to access a plethora of channels including Pandora, HBO GO, DISCOVER NOW, Crackle, NBC, FOX, etc. But initially, this player comes up with only a dozen Roku channels such as Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, etc. as these channels are built-in. If you want to add any other channel of your choice, then first, you need to add them from its channel library or store.

There are two types of channels available which you can add to your Roku device: Public or Private Channels. Adding a public channel is comparatively easy than adding a private channel (because they need code).  Let’s discuss the steps of how to add them or you can contact Roku Customer service team

How to Add Public Channel on Roku?

Step1: Go to Roku’s Home Page.

Step2: Go to Streaming Channel> open the Channel Store.

Step3: Search your desired channel either by scrolling or just by typing its name.

Step4: If you want to collect some other information about your selected channel. Press the OK button on your remote.

 Step5: If the channel is free then simply press the ADD CHANNEL button to install it.
