Get Terrarium on Roku: Load and install Terrarium TV on Roku | Updated

The truth is you can only load and install terrarium TV on Roku through screencasting or screen mirroring via your smartphone, computer or tablet.

If you’re searching for a way to natively install and load Terrarium TV on Roku you’ll need to wait for the developer to create a Roku private channel.

The simple way to get Terrarium was to use a Roku private channel (see what happened to these private channels) and if they’re coming back to Roku.

I personally would not recommend using AllCast app since Web Video Cast is more smooth and intuitive to navigate on Roku.

Here’s how to load Terrarium TV on Roku:

  • First, go to Roku settings and turn “screen mirroring” on.
  • Next, ensure Roku and your device are both on the same WiFi network.
  • Download and launch “Web Video Cast” on Android.
  • Enable “unknown sources” on Android phone under security settings.
  • You can now Load terrarium TV on Roku via cast!

I’ll also be going over the best alternative to do this on iPhone.

There is no side-loading on Roku… see Roku hacks: How to jailbreak Roku.

By using the Web Video Cast or AllCast app, you’ll be able to cast or “download” terrarium TV on Roku for Android. (this was much more simple than the AllCast app for me)

How to install and load Terrarium TV on Roku

Since there are no private channels made for Terrarium TV on Roku (and no way to sideload it), your only option left is to screen mirror or cast.

Some choose to use the Allcast app on their smartphone to do this.

However, I found Web Video Cast app to be much more useful as it gives you an intuitive, navigational, fully functional internet browser for Roku.

Alternatives for loading Terrarium TV on Roku (iPhone)

Since Terrarium is not developed on the iPhone you can use an alternative called “Movie box.

However, I personally use Plex instead of Terranium to get any movie or show that exists. (jailbreak jack). Roku has Plex natively installed and I didn’t need to buy an Amazon Firestick.

For those iPhone or Android users that really want Terrarium natively loaded on their Roku, they can grab a Firestick for pretty cheap.

I impulsively made grabbed this specific model Firestick on Amazon without thinking and I’m happy I did. It really is a massive upgrade from Roku for such a small price. The value and capabilities are endless.

Use plex for Roku as a Terrarium Tv substitute for iPhone

Plex app, which is natively installed on Roku already, can be used instead of Terrarium TV. It allows Roku owners to play their media from devices other than where it is originally stored (think torrents). This gives users the ability to create their own personal Netflix and Spotify. It’s actually amazing.

Since Plex leaves it up to users to find movies and shows to stream… those who aren’t ripping Blu-rays and DVDs are instead creating massive libraries of just-released movies through automating torrents and other alternate methods.

Is Terrarium TV a hidden channel?

Terraium TV acts as a Roku hidden channel, but only through the act of screen mirroring and not through a secret jailbreak code itself. 

This is because in the past, Terranium may have had a code, but it could had been taken down by the developer or Roku. Many experts on the topic claim this was no longer being updated by the developer.
