Does Roku have Patreon?
No, as of now Roku still doesn’t have a Patreon app on their Roku channel Store. Alternatively too there’s no way to download a third party version of the app which would be compatible with Roku. So sticking to screen mirroring would be the best option.
Can I watch Patreon on TV?
Yes, but there’s a catch. You can watch Patreon on your TV only if you stream it from your Android or Apple device by screen mirroring.
