What is Roku TV™?


Roku TV is a smart TV complete with the core features and content offered by a Roku® streaming player built-in, no streaming player required. Roku TV provides access to all your entertainment sources whether it’s a game console, cable box, antenna or streaming channels like Netflix and YouTube within one simple interface.

Roku works with a variety of TV manufacturers which build Roku TVs with different screen sizes, price points, and picture resolution from HD to Full HD to 4K Ultra-HD. Follow the link for a complete list of TV brands offering Roku TVs.

Roku TV features include:

  • The Roku TV home screen makes it easy to switch between inputs and streaming channels. You can label the input icons to represent the device you have connected, for example "Cable TV" or "Game console". 

  • Roku TV remote control looks a lot like a remote that comes with a Roku player but with a few added buttons for controlling the TV. The remote control allows you to quickly familiarize yourself with controlling the TV without even looking at the remote.
    Note: Remote buttons may vary by TV brand.
