Add official and secret channels to your Roku viewing options – How to Add Channels to RokuAdd Channels to Roku

Roku is a great way to stream free and paid entertainment services, including Netflix, Hulu, broadcast channels, and hundreds more. When you first buy and set up your Roku set-top box, streaming stick, or Roku TV, there’s an array of channels already included, with many more available. Here’s how to add channels to Roku using the Roku Channel Store as well as how to add “secret” channels. No Roku device? You can watch the Roku Channel using a dedicated mobile app.

To present more of a TV experience, Roku refers to apps, such as Netflix, Fandango, YouTube, and more, as “channels.”
