In the case of TV streaming, Roku is of many favorites. The varied contents and basic configuration make it a difficult buy. You will not be bored at any time soon by getting access to more than 500,000 films, television shows, and other material.
You just have to build an account, set up your computer, and start the fun, armed with remote control.
What about you, though, if you like a special feature that is on the website of Roku? You don’t know if it follows the model. In addition, you’re not quite sure which Roku model you’ve got.
How to Lookup your Roku Model Number
It was easy at first, but it could be frustrating now that Roku has introduced a lot of models. To be exact, there are currently nine models available. So, what models do you tell you about? Everyone looks the same and their names are still very similar.
The best way to see the model number, of course. You can find it on your device’s box but if you don’t have the box anymore, it doesn’t matter. Shoot your TV and Roku up and do as follows:
On the remote, click the Home button.
In the menu that appears, look for Settings.
Find and pick Device Data.
Open the About option.
You can find some pieces of information pertaining to your Roku, including information about your IP address, your app update, your network name, and so on. The model number, the serial number, and the system ID are available. All this will tell you with great accuracy what Roku model you have at home.
Here is a list, starting with the cheapest, of all the Roku models and their key features.
