This is an epic guide to know how to add the channels to Roku. Installing channels on Roku is easy. From Home, scroll to the menu “Streaming Channels” and click the purple “OK” button on the remote. This navigates to your Roku Channel Store (don’t worry, most are free to install).
You can use “Search Channel” to search by typing in the search term or use the other search options available. Once you search a channel navigate to it with the arrow keys on the remote and press the purple “OK” button. Then from there, the channel will be installed and available on your home screen.

Roku OS is the user interface available on all Roku versions. Some of the following functions are not available on all versions. When this is the case, We will tell you. It provides cross-platform search, voice search, and other software features.
This feature is available on all versions. When you search for an actor or title, it searches about 20 apps and tells you which app shows are available. Furthermore, Roku shows whether you have free access to it through a subscription, or have to rent or purchase the program.

The Voice Search functionality is top notch. It comes with Roku ultra only which is available via remote. While experimenting with voice search, Roku was able to find about 90% of the famous films and TV shows.
When problems came we found; This was due to the title of the film in protest of Roku to understand voice. For example, we would say “Avengers”, but a live-action blockbuster was not found. However, if I said “Marvel’s Avengers”, then Roku knew that we want that.
Roku My Feed

Just follow your favorite show and Roku will tell you when a new episode is available. Say goodbye to checking different apps to see if a new episode of your favorite TV show is available now or not.
The Roku App
The free Roku Mobile App is a great app that we recommend downloading every Roku owner from iTunes or Google Play Store. All power of the operating system is available in the app.
You can search with voice or text, you can access “My Feed”, and install apps on your Roku using the new Roku app. Voice versions are possible through the app on all versions.
