Before you can cast your Oculus Quest 2 to your Roku TV, there are a few prerequisites that need to be in place:
- Ensure that your Oculus Quest and Roku TV are connected to the same Wi-Fi network.
- You will need the Roku mobile app installed on your compatible device.
Once you’ve checked that these items are in place, you can start the casting process.
Ensure the Oculus Quest 2 and Roku TV are connected to the same Wi-Fi network.
Before you cast your Oculus Quest 2 to your Roku TV, ensure both devices are connected to the same Wi-Fi network. This is essential for securing your Oculus Quest headset and Roku Television.
It’s also recommended to restart both devices and the router if they have been turned on for a while or if you’ve been having trouble connecting. If you need help checking or changing the connection settings on your device(s), refer to the user manuals before proceeding with casting.
You also need access to whichever streaming service you intend to broadcast from so that content can be quickly delivered to your TV screen via the headset. If required, ensure your device is equipped with a compatible video-out adapter that meets the Oculus Quest 2 standards (for example, micro USB-to-HDMI).
Ensure the Oculus Quest 2 and Roku TV are up to date
Before casting your Oculus Quest 2 to the Roku TV, you must ensure that both devices have installed the most up-to-date versions of their respective software.
To update your Oculus Quest 2, open the Oculus app and select “More Settings.” Then choose Software and check to see if there’s an update available.
For a Roku TV, you will need to go into the TV settings menu to check if any software updates are ready to be downloaded. If you don’t see one in the list of available updates, no new updates are currently available for download. Both devices need to have the latest firmware version to cast using Oculus Link.
Setting up your Oculus Quest 2 to cast to your Roku TV can seem daunting, but it can be relatively easy with the proper steps. In this article, we’ll be breaking down each step you need to take, from connecting your devices to setting up the casting.

Download the Oculus app on the Roku TV
I need to download the Oculus app on my Roku TV to begin the process. To do this, I need to go to the Roku Home screen and look for “Channel Store” on the left-hand side. Once there, I can search for “Oculus” and select it from the results list. After that, press Install and wait for it to finish downloading and installing.
Once that is done, I need to connect my Oculus Quest 2 headset using a USB cable to one of my Roku TV’s USB ports. Make sure you’re using a USB 3 cable with enough power supply for your headset and your TV’s ports – this will ensure both devices have enough power.
Once all this is done, I can begin casting my Oculus Quest 2 onto the Roku TV. To do this, I have to:
- Open up the pre-installed Oculus app on the Roku TV
- Head to “Devices,” where I can choose OKC2 as an output device.
- Press the Cast option at the bottom right corner of your headset display, and your stream should now be broadcasting onto your Roku TV!

The first step is to open the Oculus app on the Roku TV. To access it, go to your Home page and scroll until you see it in the list of apps. If you have not yet installed the Oculus app on your TV, you will be prompted to do so when opening it.
Once the app is open, a screen will appear showing an Oculus logo and asking you to enter a 4-digit code provided by your headset. Once the code is entered, select “Continue” to set up your VR headset for Casting.
