How To Install IPTV on Roku with this Simple Trick (2021)

iptv on roku

The following tutorial will provide you with step-by-step instructions to install IPTV on Roku for your live streaming needs.

Because Roku uses a closed source system, we must “sideload” IPTV onto this device for use.

This will require the use of a computer in order to download the IPTV app file and add it to your Roku streaming device.

Legal Notice: TROYPOINT will not be held liable for data breaches, infected/hacked devices, or ISP logging caused by using unverified 3rd party applications, IPTV Services, addons, or streaming websites.


TROYPOINT always recommends using an Android-powered device such as a Firestick or Fire TV because of its open-source system.

Many purchase the Firestick in order to “jailbreak” the device for access to unlimited content including Movies, TV Shows, Live TV, and more.

How to Jailbreak a Firestick

However, if you are stuck with a Roku, we can use the workaround below to install IPTV on your device for all your live viewing needs.

Although we cover Roku devices on this Website, we don't recommend them due to their closed system.  We recommend the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K due to its low price and ability to easily Jailbreak it which will allow for free movies, TV shows, live channels, sports, games, and more.

Before you install IPTV on Roku, you will need an IPTV Service and the service’s Server URL.

You can always find a complete list of working IPTV Services on the TROYPOINT IPTV Resource Page.

Best IPTV Services

There are also a ton of Legal IPTV Services available in the Roku Channel Store available for installation.

Once you have your IPTV Service login information, we can install IPTV Smarters onto our Roku device for streaming.

IPTV Smarters is one of the Best IPTV Players that is compatible with hundreds of IPTV Services that use a Server URL.

It is currently available for use on Firestick, Android TV Box, and now Roku.

Because it is compatible with numerous devices and works fabulously for live content, we have included IPTV Smarters in our list of Best Roku Channels.

If you are using another IPTV Player such as TiviMate, you can also view IPTV by casting to your Roku device.

While casting IPTV is a reliable way to stream IPTV on Roku, the method below works best for viewing live tv.

VPN on Roku


When streaming IPTV on Roku or any streaming device, we always suggest a VPN.

A VPN will encrypt your connection and make your online streaming activity completely anonymous.

Best of all, your information will be hidden from app developers, Internet Service Providers, and more.

While there is no real way to install VPN on Roku, we can still protect our privacy when using this device.

The best way to do so is by installing VPN on Router.

This will ensure all devices connected to your internet are completely secure including your Roku.
