Are you frustrated or dissatisfied that Roku asks you to enter credit card or PayPal payment information to open an account? Are you worried that Roku will charge you to register your device? You may be worried that Roku’s systems will be hacked and your information will be stolen. If any of these cases concern you, there’s good news – Roku has an unpublished “no credit” unpublished link. Just go to roku.com/link register to create a free account and register your Roku device or Roku TV without entering any payment information.
So, why does Roku still ask for payment information? There is never any cost to create a Roku account or to register a Roku device. (More on this later.) Roku asks for payment information to allow users to buy or subscribe to channels directly from their Roku device. Roku receives a reduction in payment when your Roku account is billed to you. Roku, Inc. also has a financial incentive to obtain your payment information.
