Roku Just Made Getting a New Roku Easier




Roku has long been known for its easy setup. For some time now a new Roku would auto install all the Roku channels you already had on your old Roku. Now Roku is making it even easier.

One of the most painful parts of getting any streaming player is having to log in to your accounts on Netflix, Hulu, Sling, etc. Roku is making that easier by allowing you to link your Roku with several Roku channels during setup.

By linking your Roku account to Amazon, Hulu, Sling TV, and VUDU—to name a few—when you start your new Roku for the first time you will find you have already been logged in to these Roku channels.

Hopefully this is something more Roku channels will support. While it may not be something you do often, it is a great feature that saves a ton of time setting up new Rokus.
