Like other posters in this subject line, I have a problem with what I now assume to be an "accidentally purchased subscription." Can someone from Roku (Danny?) reach out to me via email so that I can explain the problem in detail -- basically, I was charged for an AcornTV subscription that I did not order. I chatted with 2 different Roku reps (Jojie and Peter Ian) on the same day the charge appeared, but the issue is still outstanding and the charge is still on my credit card. [personal information removed] Thank you.
Here is the solution: Call your credit card company and dispute the charge, especially if you can do it the same day the charge posts to your credit card account. Roku will not refund, and ESPN can't do anything because its billed through Roku. Also create the parental PIN code so it doesn't happen again.
Danny I have the same issue...we already had a ROKU TV, but replaced it with this new one. My kids set it up and didn't realize that they'd bought a subscription...we don't need it. Please cancel and refund, we've never even used it.
I did not order Fubu tv and show a subscription I don't believe I should g have to pay for it. I had family at my house for the holidays and a grandchild must have been searching and got that channel on our new tv. I have cancelled the sub but don't feel I should pay.
Thanks for the post.

You all don't aim for poor service, but you hit the mark of poor service every time.
Telling people to contact support, when you know full well support is going to deny any refund on any unauthorized purchase and tell people to setup a pin on their online account is in poor taste and not helpful.
I have dealt with this already and never received a refund. I setup the PIN on the TV following instructions and no charge should have been authorized. I was told after the fact that I needed to setup the PIN through my online account and no refund was allow on subscription services. This information should be up front when setting up the TV.
Hi Danny. I’m in a similar situation as my 97 year old grandfather accidentally purchased an app. After following your advice, I emailed customer support and got a canned response about how all sales are final. What kind of scam are you guys pulling over there?
