How to Add Sunrise Radio to Roku

There are two ways to add the Sunrise Radio Channel to Roku — through your Roku device or the Roku website. We’ll run through each method with step-by-step instructions.


Add Channels Through Your Roku Device

  1. Press the Home Button

Press the home button on your Roku remote to make sure you’re on the home screen.

  1. Go to Streaming Channels

Using the arrow buttons, select “streaming channels” from the menu and press “OK” on your remote. That will open the Roku Channel Store.

  1. Find the Sunrise Radio Channel via the Search Tool

Use the search tool. Go to “search channels” and type in Sunrise Radio using the on-screen keyboard.

  1. Add the Channel to Your Roku

Once you’ve found the Sunrise Radio channel, press “OK” to see more details. Select “add channel” and press “OK” on your remote. Then click “OK” to confirm that you want to add it.

  1. Confirmation message

You’ll see a progress bar and then a confirmation that Roku added the channel.

  1. Find the Channel

By default, any new channel will be added at the bottom of your channel list (though you can move it). Press the home button on your Roku remote and scroll to the bottom using the down arrow key to find the Sunrise Radio channel.


Go to the Roku Website and Log In

Go to and log in to your Roku account. Use the search bar to find the Sunrise Radio channels.

  1. Check the Buttons

You will notice that channels have different “buttons” underneath them. If a channel is already on your Roku (some install as default), you will see “installed” underneath. For channels not already added, there will be a “details” button for viewing more information about the channel, and, for the most part, there will also be an “+ add channel” button.

  1. Add a Channel

Once you’ve found the Sunrise Radio channel, simply click the “+ add channel” button. If that button isn’t there, click the “details” button and then click the “+ add channel” button.
