If a channel is already added, you’ll see it’s marked as “Installed” instead of having to click on “Add Channel”. Easy peasy, right? This method works for adding certified Roku channels. But what about the uncertified ones?

Add Uncertified Roku Channels from Your Computer

Listen up! Roku already has over 5,000 certified channels, which is a lot. But some channels depend on your location, so you might have fewer options than others.

Don’t worry, there are plenty of uncertified channels out there. Some of them are private or even secret. Roku likes to call them “non-certified”, but it’s all the same. These channels might be in beta testing or have adult content not suitable for all viewers.

Most of these channels work just fine, but they can sometimes glitch or have irregular content updates. To access these channels, you’ll need a code from the channel provider.

Unfortunately, non-certified channels don’t have official listings. But don’t worry, you can find them online. Just be careful, some sites with these channels might have mature content. If you’re interested, search for TV Streamin and MKVX Stream sites at your own discretion.

You’ll find a whole bunch of these private Roku channels. Some of them might even make it to the official Roku Channel Store if they get approved.

Ready to add uncertified channels using your computer? Follow these steps:

  1. First, sign in to your Roku account on the official website. Just your usual credentials are needed.
  2. Then, click on “Manage Account”. It’s like being in the control center of your Roku world.
  3. Next, click on “Add Channel with a Code”. We’re almost there, stay with me!
  4. Type in the Channel Access Code from the channel provider and click on “Add Channel”.
  5. A warning will pop up about adding a non-certified channel. If you’re cool with it, click “OK” to confirm.
  6. Now, sit back and relax. The channel will be installed on your Roku device, but it might take up to a whole day. Patience is key!

To check if the channel is installed on your Roku, go to your Roku device settings. Tap on “System”, and then “System Update”. This will tell you if the non-certified channel was successfully added.

How to Remove Roku Channels

With so many channels available on Roku, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. If you’ve added too many channels or found some that aren’t that great, you might want to remove them. But listen up, this can only be done on your Roku device or the Roku mobile app.

Now, pay attention if you have an active subscription to a channel like Netflix or Hulu. Before removing the channel, make sure to unsubscribe first. Otherwise, you’ll keep getting charged.

To remove a channel, simply find it on your channel list and click on “Remove Channel”. That’s it! Say goodbye to all those unnecessary Roku channels cluttering up your screen.

Time to Watch Some Roku

See? Using Roku is a breeze, even from your computer. Now it’s time to sit back, relax, and enjoy the thousands of channels available. Whether you choose official or uncertified channels, the choice is yours. And hey, if you no longer enjoy a channel, no problem. Just cancel it anytime. But don’t forget to cancel the subscription before removing the channel. You don’t want any extra fees, do you?
