If you’re frustrated or angry that Roku requires a credit card or PayPal payment to create an account, or if you’re afraid that your Roku will be hacked. Your identity will become compromised, and there is good news for you – Roku has an unpublicized “no credit” link. Just head over to https://my.roku.com/signup/nocc and create a free account, register your device and enter no personal information!
Alternatively, if you create an account through the normal signup link on Roku’s website, you can quit when you get to the screen asking for payment information. Your account is created when you enter your name, email address, and other requested information on the first screen and click “continue.”
Roku requires payment information to stream or purchase directly from the Roku device. In addition, Roku takes a percentage of any payments charged through your account. This means Roku, Inc. has an incentive to get your payment information.
If you want to add a fee-based channel to your Roku, you’ll need to look for the “update” button under the payment options heading and enter your credit card or PayPal account information there.
If you try to add a channel without paying but already have a PIN set up, you will be prompted for the PIN before being charged. When selecting this option on Roku settings, remember that free channels remain free for kids or other housemates who might not always follow instructions.
One more thing to note – as mentioned above, Roku does not charge for an account or registrar; instead, Many Roku customers were told to pay a fee of up to $100 for the accounting process or technical support.
Be aware that many fake sites claim to be the place to go for help with the Roku device registration, but they do not offer any service because they are fraudulent. In addition, Roku’s website states clearly that “Roku does not charge an activation fee or charge for support.” For more information, please visit this link.
