Introducing the Roku Windows mobile app

You asked, we delivered! A Roku app for Windows is now available for Windows 8/8.1 phones and Windows 8.1 devices in the U.S., Canada, U.K., and Republic of Ireland. We’re thrilled to add Windows to our mobile app lineup, joining our Android and iOS mobile apps.

If you misplace your Roku remote or just can’t quite reach it from the couch – don’t fret, just grab your phone and/or touch-enabled tablet and stream away.

Once connected to your WiFi network, use the app to control any Roku player connected to the same network. Our handy on-screen remote allows you to control and navigate your Roku player. Like our Android and iOS mobile apps, you can easily view and launch your favorite Roku channels in a tap.

We hope you enjoy it and look forward to your feedback!

    This windows 8.1 app will be perfect once you add keyboard and mouse support for it. Please think of the legacy hard ware people out there.

      Give it another shot (ie update the Win 8.1 app). It was just a configuration thing.

        It seems to work but would be nice if the remote app could start up Iheart radio and tune in radio presets without having to actually look at the roku screen. I use my roku 3 to stream iheart radio into my onkyo receiver that does not have iheart radio. I would love to be able to do that on my ios and andriod roku remote apps too. Right now I have to go to the hdmi input on my pc monitor to set up iheart radio on my roku 3 to get it going. Thanks. The roku makes the perfect internet radio.

    Add the earphone feature and it will be great.

    Like other subscription channels,I wish you could work out with Fox News to get it at an affordable price,

    Extremely handy when your 18m old hides the remote in a random box somewhere. Want to add a feature…add a beeper to the remote :)

    We have 2 Rokus in the house and I want to switch between them for which one I can control with the app. I can’t seem to find how to do it. Does anyone know how? Is it even possible?
