Add the iTunes Podcasts Channel to Your Roku

Roku is one of the coolest set top boxes for streaming Internet media on your TV. I’ve shown you how to add hidden channels to it’s lineup, and here’s how to add iTunes video and audio Podcasts. The iTunes Podcasts channel gives you the entire collection of podcasts available on iTunes.

On your computer, log in to your Roku account and then the Add Channel page. Type: ITPC and click Add Channel.

Add Channel Code

On the next screen click Yes, Add Channel.

Yes add Channel

You’ll get a message letting you know it can take up to 24 hours for it to be added. In my experience, the channels are added within minutes.

Now on your Roku, navigate to the new iTunes Podcasts channel.
