Using ClearStream TV™ with Roku

Roku streaming devices do not support initial WiFi Setup of your ClearStream TV. You will need to complete the WiFi Setup with an iOS or Android smartphone or tablet first.


WiFi Setup for iOS and Android devices to connect your Roku streaming device:

Download the App

Download the FREE ClearStream TV companion app to your iOS or Android smartphone or tablet. To download the app, go to your app store and search for “ClearStream TV” or click on one of the app store icons below. 

ClearStream TV Installation Video

Apple: Download on the App Store

Android: Get it on Google Play

MINIMUM OS REQUIREMENTS: Android 4.2 or above and iOS 8.4 or above.

Power Setup

Plug the ClearStream TV power adapter into a wall outlet and the power cord into the ClearStream TV power jack.

Connect ClearStream TV™ to your TV Antenna

ClearStream TV works with any HDTV antenna, and connects using a standard coaxial cable, just like the one used to connect the antenna directly to a TV. Be sure the antenna is positioned in the best location to receive broadcast signals, and ClearStream TV is within range of WiFi signals, with no obstructions to facilitate proper reception.

Setup Lights

When the device powers on, you will see blue and red status lights. This indicates ClearStream TV is starting up. When the status light turns green, this means ClearStream TV is on and ready for use.

  3. Return to the ClearStream TV app and tap “Next.”

Add ClearStream TV™ Channel to Roku

Go to the Roku Home screen by pressing the home button on your Roku remote. Select “Streaming Channels”, and then select “Search Channels”, and perform a search for the ClearStream TV channel. Once you find the ClearStream TV channel, select “Add Channel”.

Once in the ClearStream TV channel, go to “Settings”, and then “Scan for Channels”. Scanning for channels can take 5-7 minutes, depending on signal strength and the number of channels in your area. Once the channel scan is complete, go to Live TV and sit back, and watch all your favorite live, network, and local TV shows.

The ClearStream TV channel for Roku is supported on most Roku models. Some older Roku models may experience lower performance due to differences in Roku hardware.

Pause and Rewind functionality is not available on any Roku streaming devices due to the limitations of the Roku data storage on the Roku device itself. The pause and rewind works by allocating a certain amount of memory on the local device and is using that as a buffer for the video. Roku has very limited memory onboard and has restrictions on how channels can perform.
