Deleting apps off now tv stick. Why does it delete on another.

Hi

 

I have 2 now tv sticks. 

 

This morning I deleted Netflix and Amazon off one box. 

 

Went to the other box and its deleted of there aswell.  Why is this?  Surely each device is separate?

Re: Deleting apps off now tv stick. Why does it delete on another.

@johnbhoy1967 This is just the way Roku built devices work. The apps you install are account based, rather than device based. Therefore, if you install on one device, the app will automatically install on all your other devices. Similarly, as you have found, deleting from one deletes from all others.

 

There may, however, be a setting somewhere that isolates one device from the other.

 

Apple devices do the same thing, but at least there you can turn off auto-sync via the icloud settings.

Thanks for your reply. 

 

Does that mean all apps on other devices will need to be signed into if I reload them?

Yes, it the apps in question require their own account/sign-in, you still need to sign in to them on each device you want to use them on. It’s just the install/removal that’s automatic.
