Are you looking to connect your Roku TV to Wi-Fi but can’t find the remote? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered!

In this tutorial, we will show you how to connect your Roku TV to Wi-Fi without using a remote, using just your iPhone. Let’s get started!

Step 1: Download the Roku App

To control your Roku TV without a remote, you’ll need to download the Roku app on your iPhone. Open the App Store on your iPhone and search for “Roku.” Tap on the “Get” button next to the official Roku app and wait for it to download and install on your device.

Step 2: Connect Your iPhone to Wi-Fi

In order for your iPhone to communicate with the Roku TV, both devices need to be connected to the same Wi-Fi network. Go to the Settings app on your iPhone, tap on “Wi-Fi,” and select your home Wi-Fi network from the list. Enter the password if prompted and wait for your iPhone to connect.

Step 3: Launch the Roku App

Once you have successfully connected your iPhone to Wi-Fi, locate the Roku app on your home screen and tap on it to launch it.

Step 4: Find Your Roku TV

The Roku app will automatically detect any nearby Roku devices connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your iPhone. Look for your Roku TV in the list of detected devices and tap on it.

Note: If you don’t see your Roku TV listed, make sure both devices are connected to the same Wi-Fi network and try again.

Step 5: Control Your Roku TV

Congratulations! You have successfully connected your iPhone to your Roku TV. The Roku app will now provide you with a virtual remote control on your iPhone’s screen.

Use the virtual remote to navigate through the Roku TV interface, select apps, and control playback. You can tap on the directional buttons to move around, press the OK button to select an item, and use the other buttons for additional functions.

If you encounter any issues during the setup process, try these troubleshooting tips:

  • Restart both devices: Turn off your iPhone and Roku TV, then turn them back on.
  • Check Wi-Fi signal: Make sure your iPhone and Roku TV are within range of a stable Wi-Fi signal.
  • Update the Roku app: Check for updates in the App Store and install any available updates for the Roku app.
  • Contact Roku support: If all else fails, reach out to Roku support for further assistance.

That’s it! Now you know how to connect your Roku TV to Wi-Fi without a remote using just your iPhone. Enjoy streaming your favorite content on the big screen!
