Roku FAQ

What is a Roku® streaming device?

A Roku streaming device enables you to stream movies, TV shows, and much more over your home Internet connection to your TV. These movies and TV shows are brought to you by streaming services such as Netflix and Global TV, which can be accessed through the Roku streaming device.

Will Roku Premiere work with my TV?

Roku Premiere will work with any television with an HDMI® connection. However, you will not be able to take advantage of 4K UHD resolution without a 4K UHD-compatible TV, or HDR without an HDR-compatible TV. A compatible television is not the only requirement to stream movies and TV shows in 4K UHD or HDR; learn more about setting up your Roku player for 4K Ultra HD or setting up your Roku player for HDR.

Why is the image not displayed in HDR or is the picture quality poor when I watch HDR content?

When you specifically watch an HDR movie or TV show on your HDR-capable Roku device, you may notice the image is not displayed in HDR, or the picture quality is poor. If you encounter this behavior, you may need to update the software on your HDR-capable TV. You can typically find instructions on how to do this along with the latest software on the TV manufacturer’s website. Once you confirm that your TV is running the latest software, check that it is properly configured to enable HDR on the specific input to which your Roku player is connected. Some TVs that support HDR do not enable this feature by default.
