How To Pair the Roku 2 XS Controller to Play Games

One of the cool features of the Roku2 XS is the ability to play games like Angry Birds and others. The remote control that comes with it acts as the controller as well. Here’s how to pair the controller with your Roku box.

First, power on the Roku box. Open the battery compartment press the purple button and point it at the Roku device for a few seconds.
