You’ll be prompted to create a Roku account during guided setup. Your Roku player will provide a linking code that you’ll enter from any browser at my.roku.com/link. Alternatively, you can create an account here.
A Roku account is free, but we do prompt you to put a payment method on file for your convenience. Roku’s vast selection of channels and streaming options mean you certainly will find something that piques your interests, and the ability to rent & purchase directly from the TV immediately without having to update your account on a computer is a big plus. Once you have a valid payment method on file, you will only be charged if you choose to make a purchase.
You can use the following as payment methods:
- Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover Card
You may add, change or remove your payment method on file at any time by logging in to your Roku account from your browser – found at https://my.roku.com/ and clicking “Update” under “Payment Method”.
Please keep in mind, the following features may be impacted if your Roku account does not have a valid payment method:
- you will not be able to make Channel Store purchases
- you will not be able to rent/purchase Movies and TV Shows
What if I don't have a credit card?
If you don’t have a credit card you can use PayPal which only requires a checking account (note PayPal does not share your payment information details).
