How to Get US or UK Channels on Roku

Last Updated: Sep 21, 2015 11:28AM CEST
Since the 5.4 firmware update it's also needed to block access to 8.8.8.8 from the router. Please see these guides.

​Because the Roku box does not allow you to change DNS directly on the box you will have to change DNS on your router. Please complete this step first and make sure you get 3 green check marks in the account home.
