KOCOWA Roku Open Beta Test - 10/23/2018




It's finally here!

We are putting all our efforts into releasing an error-free, stable Roku app, but it would be impossible to make a perfect app without our users' feedback. Thus, we came up with an idea to launch our Roku app in development as a beta version to our subscribers first, to hear what you think about the new app. We take your feedback extremely seriously, and will carefully listen to everything you have to say. Once this project is over, we'll analyze all the bug reports and you awesome ideas to gradually improve it. We will try our best to continually implement better features and make adjustments to the Roku App going forward. We'll see how it goes!

  9. Open the app in the Roku Home
  10. Click 'Log in' to sign up to your subscribed KOCOWA account – this is your email address you signed up to KOCOWA

If you cannot find KOCOWA Roku app in the 'Home,' you probably have logged in to a Roku account that your Roku device does not belong. In order to check the email address that your Roku device holds, go to 'Settings → System → About' and check the 'Roku account' section.
