Roku Private Channels: The Best of the Lot


Roku recently gained immense popularity in the streaming industry with its devices that let you stream numerous channels and streaming services like Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney+, and Hulu.

The recent change of events (Hint: pandemic) brought a lot of catastrophe otherwise, but luckily things were good for the streaming industry, including the devices. With everyone quarantining in their homes, outdoor activities took a significant backseat.

It was time for the TV and internet to shine. And so it did with the help of devices like Roku, which brought along a variety of content on demand. From new TV channels to movies, TV shows, and reality TV, Roku had it all.


The compatibility of Roku on Disney Plus, Netflix, and Hulu was the primary source of its popularity, but little did we know that it holds much more content than that. Apart from these titles, Roku has a whole set of hidden private channels on their system. 

Why does it have Private Channels?

What’s the point of having these channels, you ask? This is because it is a way for private channels to test out their channel on the Roku system before they officially begin streaming for the masses. 

But Roku does not review these hidden channels until they officially are on the system, which gives room for misuse and content piracy. It discourages in all regards; hence, it works hard to eliminate as much pirated content as possible. 

How to add Private Channels on Roku?

  1. Visit the Roku website and create an account. 
  2. Sign in using your credentials.
  3. On the screen, click on Add Channels.
  4. Enter the name or code of the channel and press enter.
  5. Roku will display a warning regarding third-party content on the site. Press OK and proceed.
  6. Re-confirm one more time. 
  7. Now, wait for the channel to show up on your screen.

Final Thoughts

While you can find tons of content on Roku, these private channels are like a secret that one can discover along their way. But this too comes with a few set of rules that one has to follow no matter what. 

Some of these channels hold pirated content; while you won’t be penalized or your account won’t be ceased if Roku finds you accessing pirated content through your account and device, it will take action nonetheless. 

Roku will remove the channel immediately, and you will be banned from adding any other non-certified or private channel to your service. But this does not mean that you can’t add any channel, this rule is strictly for non-certified private channels. 

So browse safely and avoid any pirated channel at all costs.
