Apollo Group TV on Roku: Your One-Stop Streaming Destination

If you’re looking for a reliable and affordable streaming service, Apollo Group TV on Roku is definitely worth considering. With its easy-to-use interface and vast selection of channels, Apollo Group TV offers a great alternative to traditional cable TV. Plus, it’s compatible with a variety of devices, including Roku streaming players and smart TVs…but how do you actually use it?

Apollo Group TV is a streaming service based online, not a specific app you download on Roku or another device. To use Apollo Group TV on Roku, activate the service and select content form a smartphone, tablet, or web browser and then screen-cast it to a Roku that’s on the same WiFi network.

Another benefit of Apollo Group TV on Roku is the flexibility it offers. You can watch up to five streams on one network at a time, which means everyone in your household can watch their favorite shows on their own device. Plus, with the ability to pause, rewind, and fast-forward through live TV, you never have to miss a moment of your favorite shows. So if you’re looking for a cost-effective and flexible streaming service, Apollo Group TV on Roku is definitely worth checking out, so let’s start by looking at the service in more detail before moving on to how to use it.

First, What is Apollo Group TV?

First, let’s just briefly recap what Apollo Group TV is: at its core, Apollo Group TV is an online service that provides live TV channels, video on demand (VOD), and other similar content.

As we mentioned above, it’s not an app that you download from an app store, but rather a service that you can access through a compatible device. It’s similar to any other general “IPTV” option, which we’ve covered in reference to Roku devices in a separate article here.

One reason we see users picking Apollo Group TV for is its affordability. Unlike other services that require you to add expensive sports or premium channel packages, the pricing structure means you never have to pay more than you need to (if you want one of the smaller packages).

At time of writing, pricing packages begin at $45/mo with a signup promotion (and note that is with some of the key channels you may want, like ESPN), and they go up to traditional cable package prices of over $200 for packages including more channels.

Overall, Apollo Group TV is a premium entertainment platform that offers unbeatable quality and affordable prices. Whether you’re a cord-cutter or just looking for a better way to watch TV, Apollo Group TV seems to have something for everyone. But how do you use it on Roku?

Do We Recommend Apollo Group TV?

We have tested and used Apollo Group TV and found it to be a cost-effective solution for live TV. It competes directly with options like Sling and YoutubeTV, and offers many of the same packages, with basically the same quality.

The lower tier packages are competitively priced and provide access to a good selection of channels. However, larger packages are going to be driven by your personal perceived value of the channel selection.

All that said, we really feel that YoutubeTV is a better option, because, though it starts at a higher price point, it has a much more clean and polished user interface…which is to say it has an app you can download, so you won’t need to do all this screen-mirroring.

Channel Surf’s Up: Apollo Group TV on Roku Redux

If you’re seeking flexibility, affordability, and a vast array of content, Apollo Group TV on Roku offers a tantalizing proposition. But as home-theater experts, we have to point out that this is an accessory service first and foremost. There are other better streaming options we recommend for a home theater, that simply offer a better user experience.

That said, if some of your priorities are taking your streaming solution with you and having access to it on the go…well, YoutubeTV and Sling still compete very well here.

If there’s not a specific feature or pricing structure that’s pulling you to Apollo Group TV, then you should pause to look at the others. But, if you move forward with Apollo Group TV, it’ll work just fine with your Roku so long as you’re willing to do a bit of screen-casting!
