NOTICE: Roku recently announced that on February 23, 2022, it will sunset all channels not available through its official store. This includes the current VidAngel channel. On that date, VidAngel and all other non-certified channels or “sideloaded” apps will be disabled across all Roku devices.
You are welcome to install and/or cast the VidAngel Roku Channel until that date. We are also getting some great options ready for you!
The VidAngel channel is not yet in the Roku store but can be installed manually on your Roku. You can do this by casting to your Roku from our VidAngel mobile app. If that sounds intimidating, don't worry, we'll walk you through each step!
Before you get started, be sure to have your Roku turned on and your mobile device ready to go.
