For those who didn’t know, TeaTV is an extremely popular streaming platform loved by many users. That’s why it is kind of baffling how it doesn’t have an app version dedicated for Roku yet?
Anyway, don’t despair yet. What if I told you there was a way to stream TeaTV to your Roku device? If this is exactly the piece of information you are looking for, then read on.
Below is a guide on how to watch TeaTV on Roku. Without further ado, let’s begin.
How to stream TeaTV on Roku
As mentioned above, TeaTV has yet to have a dedicated application version on Roku app store yet, and no one has come up with a way to install it on Roku. Therefore, it wouldn’t be possible to install TeaTV onto Roku in a fully incorporated manner.
However, you can still stream TeaTV on Roku by mirroring. For folks who aren’t aware of mirroring or are sort of vague on it, here is a quick definition on what it is and what it does. Mirroring, in the technological sense, means that you project the screen of a device on another screen.
Whatever you do on this device’ screen will also show on the other mirroring screen. You got the idea right? Roku is one of many revolutionary smart TV technological devices. Therefore, mirroring another device, sure as hell, isn’t anything new it couldn’t handle.

Mirroring TeaTV on Roku
Firstly, install TeaTV on whichever device you are intending to mirror from.
Go to Settings on your Roku device, then locate System and click on it.
Within System, you will find Screen Mirroring, click on it then Enable Screen Mirroring.
To switch the display on different devices, go to switcher menu. Launch TeaTV program first, then use the keyboard shortcut Windows and P and the menu will show up.
By the way, ensure that the Windows device and Roku device which TeaTV installed on, are connected to the similar network connection. Otherwise, they wouldn’t be able to establish a link.
In the menu, you will find different options as below:
- PC Screen Only: images will be only be played on your PC screen.
- Duplicate: Images will be played on both the PC screen, as well as the screen connected with the Roku device.
- Extend: Images will be partially displayed on both the PC and the Roku device screen. With the correct setup, this setting can exponentially improve your enjoyment experience. Nonetheless, that’s a topic for another article.
- Second Screen Only: this option will display the content on the Roku device only.
Choose the setting you would like the connection to be, or you can do it later.
Below all the settings in the switcher menu, you will see the option to Connect to a wireless display. Click on it to display all devices which are currently connected to the same network. Then, choose your Roku device within the list, and give it a minute for the devices to locate each other.
Once the link has been established, you will see on message on the Roku device asking if you would like to Accept or Always Accept. Choose Accept to mirror this time only which means you will have to manually accept next time you connect Roku to your PC. Choose Always Accept for easy connection during your next mirroring.
Your Roku device should be displaying whatever it is on your PC screen now. Stream TeaTV on your PC and all images will be mirrored to your Roku device too.
Place your Roku device and PC in a setup which the distance is enough to see the thumbnails of the content, while maintaining a healthy distance between your eyes and Big screen.
Also, if you would like even more features for mirroring to maximize your enjoyment during your day off, use a mirroring application. Within the Roku app store, the one that is perhaps the most popular would be Screen Mirroring to Roku.
It has several features that the Roku default mirroring doesn’t, and is overall decent for streaming content.
Lastly, if your Roku device couldn’t establish a connection with your PC, try switching off the Roku device then reconnected with your Wifi. Another alternative solution you can try is resetting the modem. That allows the modem to flush out any glitches and reassign valid IP addresses to bot your Roku device and PC.
That’s it folks. That’s how to watch TeaTV on Roku. Indeed, it is slightly disappointing how a popular streaming platform like that isn’t a part of Roku for convenience’s sake.
However, that does not mean it would not be incorporated to Roku in the near future. In fact, it is very feasible it will be since TeaTV popularity has been on the rise recently.
