It seems that the Roku button to add channels is throwing an error. There is a way around it until they get it fixed.
- Go to your Roku account at https://my.roku.com/account/add
- When it brings up the next page that says "Enter a channel access code to add a public channel, a non-certified channel, or a beta channel to your Roku account" write-in "VidAngel" and add the channel.
- Then select "ok" when it warns you it's not a certified channel.
After completing these steps, the new Roku channel should appear in the Home section with your other channels!
We're so excited for you to use VidAngel on your Roku. Install the VidAngel Roku channel using the instructions below. (NOTE: The VidAngel channel is not currently available in the Roku store.)
