Utilizing Roku TV App

If you are a new user, I suggest using the Roku TV application. By using the Roku TV app, you will be able to connect your headphones to the TV. You can follow these steps to turn on the private listening of the Roku App.

  • Install the Roku app on your smartphone. 
  • After that, pair your headphones with your smartphone.
  • Now go to the remote or navigation bar of the App.
  • After that, you need to click the headphone icon. 
  • Look for the paired devices and find your headphones.

Connecting with TCL Roku TV Bluetooth

Regarding the direct Bluetooth, new TCL models equipped with modern technologies come with Bluetooth. On the other hand, the old TCL Roku TVs don’t have this functionality, so you have to buy the transmitter for Roku TV. 

But for modern TVs, you go to the settings and look for Bluetooth to turn it on. After that, look for the new devices and find your headphones. For better connection, keep the headphones in proximity and turn the pairing on for better connection. Now pair the TV with headphones and enjoy your Me Time late at night.

Using Remote for Wired Connection

Most of the time, the headphones come with a wire for a wired connection. The TCL Roku TV comes with a very usable remote. An aux 3.5mm jack is available in the remote that you can use to connect your headphones through the wire. I usually connect my Beats headphones with the wired connection to watch Real Madrid matches late at night.
