How to install OptiSigns Player on Roku TVs

Roku comes with many new Smart TVs, such as the 55' TCL for $299 on Amazon.
It is one of, if not the most cost efficient way to get your digital signs going.

Before we get going, a few limitations you should take note:

1) Beta limitations (our Roku app is in Beta, and these limitation is planned to be lifted)

  • Only work with images, videos & playlist of images
  • Portrait mode is supported
  • Schedule will be supported

2) Roku platform limitation (these are the limitation specific to Roku Platform and will not change once we are out of beta)

  • OptiSigns apps will not work on Roku (Social Media, Google Slides, Youtube, etc.)
  • Roku has small storage, be mindful of how much content you would like to cache on it

To install OptiSigns on Roku, there are 3 high level steps:

  1. Install OptiSigns channel/app on your Roku
  2. Set OptiSigns as screensaver so it will start automatically with Roku
  3. Pair your screen with OptiSign portal and start assigning content to it

1) Install OptiSigns channel/app on your Roku
