If you’re a Roku user, you’ve probably already taken advantage of the vast selection of streaming services available on the platform. But did you know that you can also access local TV channels through your Roku device? With a few simple steps, you can start watching your favorite local news, sports, and entertainment channels on your Roku. Here’s how to get started.
Add Local Channels to Your Home Screen
The first step in receiving local channels on your Roku is to add them to your home screen. To do this, open the Roku Channel Store and search for “local channels” or “local news.” You should see a list of available channels that are specific to your area. Select the channel you want to add and follow the on-screen instructions to install it. Once it’s installed, it will appear on your home screen for easy access.
Subscribe to Local Channel Services
In addition to adding individual local channels to your home screen, you can also subscribe to services that provide access to multiple local channels at once. These services are typically offered by regional cable companies or streaming services like Sling TV or Hulu Live TV. To subscribe, simply select the service from the Roku Channel Store and follow the on-screen instructions for signing up and paying for the service. Once you’ve subscribed, all of the included local channels will be added to your home screen automatically.
Watch Live or Record Content
Once you have added local channels or subscribed to a service that includes them, you can start watching live content right away. Just select the channel from your home screen and start streaming. You can also record shows and movies with most services by selecting “Record” from the show or movie page in the channel app. This will allow you to watch content even if you don’t have time when it airs live.
With these simple steps, you can get access to all of your favorite local TV channels through your Roku device. Whether you want to watch live sports games or catch up on local news stories, having access to these channels makes it easy and convenient. So what are you waiting for? Get started today.
