Roku: Add Hidden Channels to the Lineup

Roku has more channels than most set top boxes. But you can add more. Here’s how to add hidden channels to your Roku box.


First you need to find the channel codes. To find new channels join a Roku forum, Yahoo Group or check out an online database of hidden channels.

After you have the code for the channel you want to add, log into the Roku website. Under My Account click Add a Private Channel.

Enter in the channel code. For example, if you want to add the Woot channel, type: BPPIM into the Add Channel field. Click Add Channel. When typing text on the Roku, the Roku Remote app for iPhone or iPod touch comes in handy.


Verify you want to add the channel to your Roku. Click Yes, Add Channel.


Success. The channel has been added. Roku gives you a message saying it can take up to 24 hours for it to appear on your device. But I’ve never had to wait that long.


Back on the Roku, refresh the channel lineup using the remote.


You’ll find the new channel under My Channels in the Channel Store.


Now enjoy your new channel on the Roku.
