Can I Broadcast to a Roku Channel With Resi?

  • Updated

Roku is an over-the-top (OTT) streaming service where viewers can access your content. If you want to give viewers more opportunities to watch your events, consider designing a Roku Channel. For more information on creating and developing a Roku Channel, see Roku’s Developer Documentation. When you’re ready to stream to Roku, the following instructions provide what you need from Studio.

1. Enable Stream URLs

You’ll need the HLS stream URL to broadcast with Roku. First, make sure stream URLs are available in your Resi subscription. If you don’t have access to them, contact your Customer Success Manager or Resi’s sales team.

Once you have access to stream URLs, toggle them on for each web channel you want to broadcast to Roku with. Learn more Screen_Shot_2023-01-27_at_12.51.40_PM.png

  1. Navigate to Settings > Web Channels.

  3. Scroll to the bottom of the page or click the Embed tab.
  4. Click Stream URLs.
