Alternate Way to find MAC Address on Roku
If the TV or the steaming device is not working or having some issues with the display, you can use this as an alternate way. On the back of the device, there will be a sticker. Look closely at that sticker, and you will get the MAC address.
Other names of MAC addresses are Wireless ID and Media Access Control address. In the sticker, the name may vary according to the device you are using. You can also check both MAC addresses from the Settings menu and from the sticker. If both are the same, then your device is legal and legit. If it varies, you are using the corrupted device, or the device is from illegal sources.
With these two methods, you can find the MAC address of your Roku TV or Roku streaming device. MAC addresses are needed when you sign up for IPTV services or to claim the warranty. Take a snapshot of the MAC address on your smartphone for easy access. If you want to know any specific things about Roku TV, mention that in the comments below.
