Hello, my name is Rusty. Yes, you can use a Roku 4 with it. Just plug it into any available HDMI ports on your TV, plug Roku into power, select the proper HDMI input (where you plugged in Roku), and you'll be all set. Let me know if you have trouble with it.

Please leave a 3-5 star rating. It does not close the question, and you can get advice from me on this problem at no extra charge.

Haven't bought it yet.Will do so on your green light and will contact you if problems.Obviously premature to rate you

Your TV specs match Roku 4. You have 1080p, so you won't have any problems. It's plug and play, go ahead and get the Roku.

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
