GMA Video Service Support

Should you require assistance with your GMA Video, please don’t hesitate to contact Green Mountain Access Technical Support at 888-321-0815 or support@gmavt.net.

Important Note

Please be advised that your GMA Video service is only authenticated for use at your physical location. If you move your Roku player to another Internet connection outside of your home, your GMA Video service will not work.

rokuSetting Up Your Roku Streaming Stick

Step 1 — Connect to your TV

  • Simply plug the Roku Stick into an available HDMI input on your TV. Be sure to make note of the TV input used.

Step 2 — Connecting the Power Cord

  • Use the included power cable to connect the Roku Stick to either the power adaptor or an available USB port on your TV.

Step 3 —Power Up Key Components

  • Turn on your TV and select the correct TV input.
  • Install the batteries on the Roku remote.

Step 4 — Complete Guided Setup

  • During Guided Setup, you’ll be prompted to connect to a wireless network.  Select your network from the list of available networks in the settings menu on your Roku stick.
  • If your wifi network has one, enter wireless network password when prompted.  (Note:  passwords are case sensitive)
  • Your Roku stick will let you know if there is a software update available, and will restart after the update is complete.

Step 5 — Create a Roku Account Online 

On your computer, go to: http://owner.roku.com. Your Roku stick will generate a unique code that links your player to your new account. Roku accounts are free, but require a valid credit card to create your account (this is a Roku policy, and independent of Green Mountain Access). Please note, Roku will only charge your credit card if you authorize purchases of paid channels, games or other content from the Roku Channel store.

  • Now, link your Roku stick from any Internet browser. A link code should be displayed on the TV screen after restart. Using an Internet browser, follow the instructions to link your Roku stick to a new or an existing Roku account if you already have one.

Step 6 — Add the GMA Video Channel

•  On your computer, go to http://my.roku.com/add/gmavideo

• You will need to be logged into your Roku account. Once you add the channel, it should show immediately. If it doesn’t, you can refresh your channels on your Roku home screen by selecting, Settings > System update or Settings > Player info and checking for an update.

Step 7 — Enjoy!

•   To watch your live GMA Video channels, simply select the Green Mountain Access Video channel from your Roku Home screen (it’s the one with the Green Mountain Access logo).

GMA Video Channel Functionality

  • You can change channels by using the up and down arrows on your Roku remote. For your convenience, the channel channel listing information will momentarily appear in the upper lefthand corner of the screen.
  • Press the up arrow key on the Roku remote to access the channel list. You can then use the right/left arrow keys to scroll through the list of channels and use the “ok” or “select” buttons to change to that channel.
  • The “return” button (or instant replay button as Roku refers to it) will take you back to your last channel.

Control Your Roku Player From Your Mobile Device

  • Try the free Roku Remote App available for iPhone® and Android™ that turns your phone into the ultimate Roku remote. You can control any Roku player on your network: change channels, play photos, music, or video on your TV. You can also log into your Roku account to browse the channel store to add, remove, and rate channels. There’s even a useful virtual keyboard for when you prefer to type instead of swipe.
