1. What is Roku?

Roku is a small black box that allows you to instantly stream EWTN to your TV. To get EWTN on your Roku, all you need is a high speed Internet connection, a TV and the Roku Player. The Roku connects directly to your TV and can be connected by an ethernet cable directly into your home modem or internet router. It can also be connected wirelessly as well.

2. How fast does my internet speed need to be to see EWTN?

Your Internet connection must at least be 1.5Mbps or better. Don't' know your speed? Check it here. http://www.speedtest.net

3. What is the monthly fee to watch EWTN on Roku?

There is no monthly fee. EWTN is free channel. You just pay your monthly Internet bill.

4. My local cable does not get EWTN. Can I still get it on Roku?

Yes. All you need is the internet to see the EWTN channel.

5. Do I need a computer to watch EWTN on Roku?

No. A computer is not needed. If you wanted the watch some other channels on Roku there would need to be a computer to register. You do not need to with EWTN.

6. Can I keep the satellite/ cable that I have while having a Roku?

Yes. Just swap back and forth.

7. Do you have to have Netflix to watch anything on Roku?

No. There are many free channels and EWTN is one of them.

8. Do I need to have more than one Roku to watch EWTN on other TVs in the house?

You can either buy a Roku for each TV or it is so small and easy setup that you just unplug from one and plug back up to new one. No new sign on is needed.

9. Sometimes the picture freezes or buffers. What is the cause of this?

Check your internet speed. It may not be fast enough for the program.

10. My Roku froze and the remote will not go to the "home page." How do you fix this?

If you freeze – unplug the Roku to re-boot the system. It will go through start up and should unfreeze the device.

11. Your German feed works for me but the US English times out. How do I get the US if another stream works for me?

Unplug device and reboot it. Sometimes the path to the Roku may change and the memory will not know about new direction it needs to take. A refresh works great to re-establish connection to EWTN.

12. My picture seems to be stretched or squashed. What can I do to fix this?

Go into settings menu and scroll down to display type. Adjust the setting to match your TV.

13. My EWTN channel cuts off at 2 hours and I need to restart. Why does this happen?

We time our channel to cut off and you to reestablish connection after 2 hours. Just streaming the signal cost EWTN lots of money and if no one is watching it still cost. Consider helping EWTN with a donation.

14. What connections do I need to hookup a Roku to my TV?

Your TV needs to have either an HDMI input or a composite input ( RCA input).
