Your device automatically checks for updates, but in some cases, such as when streaming issues arise, a manual update may be required.
Update your Roku Smart TV or Streaming Stick.
Check to see if your device has a WiFi or Ethernet connection to the internet.
Then, on your Roku remote, press the house-shaped button to bring up your device’s home screen.
From the left-hand navigation menu, select Settings, System, and finally System Update.
This section contains your current installed version as well as other technical information.
Selecting Check Now, according to The Verge, will initiate a manual search for any available updates.
A popup will appear if an update is available, asking if you want to install it now or later.
If you’re ready, click Update Now.

The next part of your update is about to begin.
Depending on your internet connection, this may take some time.
When the update is complete, your device will reboot, and the reset may take some time because the update takes time to properly install.
If your Roku device is still having issues after an update, according to Gizmodo, it may be time to upgrade it.

This is especially true when watching ultra-high-definition content, which requires significantly more bandwidth than even 1080p HD. However, there is one way to be sure: test your TV’s performance to find the bottleneck.
To do so, you’ll need to first test your internet speed with a device that can do so.
