How to Watch Patreon on Roku

A month ago, I found an app where I could watch my favorite creators providing awesome values. But after looking for the same app on my Roku TV, I got tired and ended up finding nothing. 

I know, you have the same issue!

So, to watch Patreon on Roku TV, (as it’s not given on the Roku channel store) after wearing out my mind, I have explored two ways to do so.

Now, to get all the Patreon videos on Roku right away, let’s start going through the steps given below:

No, you cannot watch Patreon on Roku TV.

Instead, since the Patreon app is available on your Apple, Google Play Store, and browser, you can download it and cast the screen (of Android, iOS, laptop, or Mac) to your TV.
