View Your Facebook News Feed Videos and Photos on Roku

If you have a Roku, you might not know that you can link your Facebook account to it and view photos and videos on your HDTV from your News Feed. Here’s how to set it up with the free Facebook Photos channel on Roku, and your Facebook page.

Add Facebook to Roku Player

On your Roku, download the Facebook Channel if you don’t have it already. Launch it, and you’ll get an activation code.

Next, on your computer, open a browser and go to the Facebook for Devices page and enter in the code. You’ll need to give Roku access to your Public Profiles.

After that, on your Roku you’ll be able to access your videos, photos, friends’ photos and videos, news feed videos, and more.

Select Friends Photos or Videos

Photos will be presented in a slideshow view, with a new one displaying every few seconds. Of course you can also use your remote to shuffle through them too.


If you pause your photo collection you can see comments that your friends have made on them.

In Settings you can change the amount of time between photos, slideshow resolution, and even select different types of slideshow background music.
