Watching TV and don’t want to disturb the rest of the house? Audio is key to your entertainment experience – plug headphones into your smartphone or tablet and listen as loud as you like through the free Roku mobile app for your iOS® or Android™ devices.

Tablo Roku Private Listening


Movies and TV shows can have a wide range of sounds. Night listening mode is an audio feature available on Roku Premiere, Roku Premiere+ and Roku Ultra that allows you to watch movies and TV shows without disturbing others nearby. When night listening mode is enabled, the volume of soft sounds like whispering is increased while the volume of loud sounds like explosions is decreased.


Easily share photos, videos and music from your compatible smartphone or tablet right to your TV. Enjoy fantastic slideshows and videos starring you and your friends and loved ones on the big screen. You and your friends can even share and enjoy photos and videos from your mobile devices at the same time. Tap the “Photos+” tab on the Roku mobile app for iOS® and Android™ to get started.
