How to Identify Your Roku Model

Roku is one of the most popular streaming device brands, offering a wide range of models to meet different needs and budgets. With Roku players, sticks, soundbars, and TVs to choose from, it can get confusing to identify which specific Roku model you own. Knowing your exact Roku device model is important to ensure you get the correct technical support, purchase the right accessories, and take full advantage of available features.

Fortunately, there are a few easy ways to find out which Roku model you have. As a streaming technology expert with over 10 years of experience, I will explain the various methods to accurately identify your Roku device model.

Check the Roku Model Number

The quickest way to identify your Roku model is to locate the model number. Every Roku device has an alphanumeric model number that precisely specifies that variant.

On the Device

Many Roku devices have the model number printed directly on the device itself. Carefully check the exterior casing on all sides and bottom for this number. For example, you may see a sticker or engraving showing the model such as “3810X” or “4660X”.

In the Settings Menu

If you don’t see the model number physically printed on your Roku device, you can easily find it through the on-screen settings:

  1. Turn on your connected Roku and TV.
  2. On the Roku remote, press the Home button to access the Home screen.
  3. Navigate to Settings > System > About.
  4. The model number will now be displayed, usually shown as “Roku XXXXXX” or just “XXXXXX”.

Write this number down so you can easily reference it later.

On the Packaging

If you still have the original packaging your Roku came in, you will likely find the model name and number printed on the box. This allows you to identify the exact variant you purchased, even if you no longer have the device itself.

Identify by Roku Type

Roku organizes their streaming devices into several product categories, including players, sticks, smart soundbars, and smart TVs. Identifying which type of Roku you have can provide useful clues to narrow down your specific model.

Roku Players

Roku players are small streaming boxes that connect to your TV via HDMI. They offer robust functionality and performance for streaming in HD, 4K, and HDR quality. Current Roku player models include the Roku Express, Express 4K, Premiere, Ultra, and Ultra LT.

Roku Streaming Sticks

As the name suggests, Roku streaming sticks plug directly into an open HDMI port on your TV. They offer portable streaming ability from a tiny device. Current models comprise the Roku Streaming Stick 4K and Streaming Stick 4K+.

Roku Smart Soundbars

Roku smart soundbars combine powerful streaming functionality with immersive audio performance in a single device. The Roku Streambar and Streambar Pro are the newest additions to Roku’s lineup.

Roku TVs

Roku TVs have the Roku streaming platform built directly into the television. They eliminate the need for any additional streaming devices. Roku partners with major TV manufacturers to produce their smart TV models.

Match Features to Your Roku Model

If you don’t know the model name or number, you can still identify your Roku variant by carefully comparing its features and specifications to Roku’s lineup.

Take note of your device’s included ports, wireless connectivity standards, remote control design, video and audio capabilities, processor, and any other hardware details. Then visit Roku’s website to browse the product specs of current models. Match your observations to the model with identical features.

With a bit of deduction, you can pinpoint exactly which Roku you own. This allows you to take full advantage of all its capabilities and get proper assistance when needed.
