Despite the porn industry’s pioneering role in the growth of on-demand content, the tech and broadcasting industry’s caution towards adult content often means those platforms don’t want adult content included in the directories – Apple and Google are notable examples.

Luckily, if you want to watch adult content on the biggest screen in your house, Roku’s free hidden porn channels are one way that won’t require a whole lot of technical know-how or tinkering. Alternatively, if you need a guide to the best VR porn sites, we’ve got you covered there too.

Roku has been around for nearly twenty years, before settling on its current business model in 2008 with its first set-top-box. That was specifically for the fledgeling Netflix service, but since then it has expanded to thousands of ‘channels’ (its term for apps) covering a huge range of different subjects… but no porn on display.

Except that’s not true if you know how to access the ‘Private Channels’.

Although not specifically geared at porn, several studios use these hidden offerings, designed to appeal to beta testers and closed user groups, as a means to bring their porn apps to a wider audience, and that means that you can probably access them too.

What you need to access Roku porn channels

The first thing to remember is that although there’s nothing illegal about adding these channels, they are not officially supported, and Roku will give you a warning about not breaking your device. We’d like to echo that – we haven’t had any problems so far, but that doesn’t mean you can come crying to us if something goes wrong. With that, let’s get going.

Before you start, you’ll need:

  • A laptop (ideally) or phone
  • A Roku device connected to your TV.
  • Some Private Channel codes (below)

You’ll also need some codes. Because these channels don’t officially exist, they also could disappear or change their passcode at any time – a quick Google will fix that for you though.

How to add porn channels to Roku

  • Make a note of any channels you want to add from the Roku porn code section below. Each has a code – usually a word – so write that down if necessary.
  • Go to Roku.com and log in to your account.
  • Find the option to “Add Channel with Code”. Click that, and simply type in the code for the channel you want. For example, for Pornhub, the code is ‘pornhub’ – it’s often that simple.
  • Hit Enter and in a few seconds, you should see the channel added to the bottom of your Roku channels list.

It’s that simple – and with a range of channels – free and paid, gay and straight, softcore through to BDSM, there’s something for everyone, and many paid channels offer discounts to new subscribers.

Straight Roku Porn Channels

While there’s a whole lot of free porn available via Roku devices, some of the free channels might still require you to have a free account in order to be able to access the service. Adult Empire Unlimited is a good example of this, with thousands of scenes available – provided you at least have a free account.

Here are a few more adult streaming channels that have apps available for Roku devices. You’ll often need at least that free account though, where they are available.

The great thing about using Roku as a porn viewer is that it’s almost completely devoid of malware. But we should remind you that because there’s no VPN option, you’ll need to make separate arrangements to protect your privacy, but it’s a small price to pay for a world of adult entertainment at the touch of a remote.
