The following tutorial will provide you with step-by-step instructions to install IPTV on Roku for your live streaming needs.

Because Roku uses a closed source system, we must “sideload” IPTV onto this device for use.

This will require a computer to download the IPTV app file and add it to your Roku streaming device.

We always recommend using an Android-powered device such as a Firestick or Fire TV because of its open-source system.

However, for those wanting to watch live tv on Roku, we can use the workaround below to install IPTV on your device for all your live viewing needs.
