is an account and credit card information necessary to use a Roku device?
My brother just received a new Roku device. He only wants to watch free content, and not a subscriber of any "pay" channels like Netflix, AmazonPrime, etc. Does he really have to create a Roku acct and provide credit card info?
Re: is an account and credit card information necessary to use a Roku device?
Even if you use a credit card attached to your account nothing will be charged. I have one attached to mine but never use it. I always subscribe to paid channels directly from their own website. Follow this link to make a Roku account without a credit card. Using a Roku is free. There is no charge ever. Only if you physically subscribe to a paid service such as Netflix is there a charge. That charge will be whatever Netflix monthly cost is.
