Click the “install” button and the installation process will begin. When its done, your app will instantly open on the Roku.

Congratulations! You’ve sideloaded an application. There’s one key catch, really: you can only have one application sideloaded on your Roku at any given time. If you want to sideload a different channel, your first sideloaded channel will be removed. The good news: there aren’t too many Roku channels out there that are sideload-only.
