How to Change the Name of a Roku Device


If you have more than one Roku device in your home, you’ve certainly noticed that they are given unhelpful names like “Roku 2” and “Roku 3.” It might become difficult to tell them apart when using Alexa to control them or when switching between them in your mobile app. The obvious solution to this problem is to change them to something friendlier and more clearly identifiable, which is a simple task that Roku makes available to its users. The only place where you’ll be able to change the name of your Roku is on the Roku website; you can’t do it from the Roku device itself or through the mobile app. Here are the steps:

How do I find my Roku TV name?

Within the settings menu of your Roku device, you will be able to find information regarding the device’s model. To navigate your home screen, press the Home button on your Roku remote. Select Settings by scrolling up or down the page. Choose System, then About, from the drop-down menu.

Which Roku devices are no longer supported?

Beginning on June 24, 2020, support for Roku devices with model numbers 2400 to 3100 will be discontinued (this also includes the Roku streaming stick, models 3420 or earlier). Up until the date that the service is switched over, you can continue to view Hulu on these older Roku models.

Can an old Roku be updated?

Every day, your Roku does a check for software updates automatically, but you can also update it manually through the Settings menu. You may also bring the channels of your Roku up to date by clicking the star button located on the remote control. OS 10.5 is the most recent significant upgrade for Roku, and it introduces new voice control features.

Should I replace my old Roku?

If your current Roku fulfils all of your streaming needs, there is no incentive to upgrade to a newer model. Now, if you discover that a service does not support your Roku and you really want to use that service, you will need to update. However, if your current Roku player provides you with access to all of the content that you desire, there is no need to upgrade.
