What is The Roku Channel, and how can I watch it?

As well as being a provider of one of the leading digital media streaming device and system providers in the US, Roku also offers thousands of free movies and TV shows, plus over 40 live streaming TV channels, via its online service The Roku Channel.

This ad-supported channel delivers TV shows, movies, sport, news and an array of kid’s programs to almost any device you can think of.

If there still isn’t enough programming available for viewers through the free content, The Roku Channel provides subscriptions to premium channels such as HBO, Showtime, Starz, Epix, and Cinemax. Their pricing for these bolt-ons is almost identical to their competitors.

Roku provides an app for iOS and Android devices and will perform admirably on any browser, whether that’s with your Mac, PC or other TV streaming device.

So, sit back and tune in to the Clash of the Titans, Cold Case, Without a Trace, An American Tail or Quest for Camelot.

If none of those are your thing, maybe sport is? There are plenty of live sports channels too: Stadium, Fubo Sports Network, ESTV, Combat Go or Adventure Sports Network.

Whatever you want to watch, from documentaries or news to sports and cartoons, The Roku Channel has got masses of every type of content, and all streamed to you free of charge.

How can I watch The Roku Channel with StreamLocator?

StreamLocator makes The Roku Channel think you’re in the USA. By switching your location with an alternative virtual option, all of their restricted content becomes available for you to stream—just how you normally would.

No complicated settings or software installation required

We don’t think you should have to install any new software or add DNS profiles to every device you use to access the streams you choose—so, we designed a system where you don’t have to. Our smart router takes care of everything. It works with all of your Internet-enabled devices; it’s always on, and ready to switch your location.

Because it works with your existing WiFi router, it’s the ideal match for any device you use to stream shows and movies at home. It doesn’t matter whether you’re logging on with an Apple or Android smartphone or tablet, Roku, Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV, Mac, PC, or even your games console; StreamLocator handles international content on every platform.

Just as you usually would, you can access your WiFi from any room of your home. But now, you have access to streaming services from all over the world, and you can connect to as many different services and countries as you want—all at the same time.

How to watch The Roku Channel from outside the USA

The Roku Channel uses geolocation tracking to check precisely where you are. If you’re not in the US, then they’ll let you know you can’t watch their shows or redirect you to their content that’s available to you in your own country.

To get around their location blocks, you need to use a VPN or DNS service to provide a suitable virtual location—or something very similar.

How to register for The Roku Channel from outside the USA

Registration is simple. All you need is an email address and a few basic details, and you’re up and running in no time.

The majority of The Roku Channel’s content is paid for by delivering a few ads at the beginning and during each show or movie. Only the additional premium channels require you to pay for them. If you’d like to access any of those, then you can use any PayPal account to make your payment. You just need to remember to provide a US location with a corresponding zip code when you fill in your payment details.

Do you need a VPN or DNS to watch The Roku Channel from outside the USA?

Watching The Roku Channel from outside the US requires you to utilise a method of location switching, to make their servers think you’re in America.

VPN and Smart DNS services have been the standard methods to bypass these kinds of blocks instigated by streaming service providers. However, they’re becoming increasingly intelligent, spotting many of these services, and blocking them too.

StreamLocator works using a combination of different technologies. This way, it knows which method it needs to use to guarantee you access every time.

Our router calculates the best connection option and chooses it automatically. That’s it. Your smart TV, Mac, PC or smartphone will automatically connect to your streaming service without you even knowing it’s doing it.

How to unblock The Roku Channel

Our process is simple and straightforward. All you need to do is plug our smart router into your existing WiFi router, activate your account, and from then on, choose the new STREAMLOCATOR network from your WiFi options when you need your location switching.

Does StreamLocator allow me to watch The Roku Channel for free?

Yes, it does. You’ll have to pay for its premium services, but the live streams and on-demand content provided by The Roku Channel will remain absolutely free of charge, just as it always has.
