Re: Can I activate without a credit card

Thank you, registered first on computer and added the device by linking the device(just add the code present at the add credit card screen on the TV).

Sure. I discussed it much further right here:  How To Keep Your Hard Earned Money Very Separate From Your Roku Account For The Foreseeable Future

Just use the search bar to find it.

Re: Can I activate without a credit card

Hello,  Thanks for your post. I am going to try it now. 

What page do I look for the button. Is it the credit card page?

Thanks

Re: Can I activate without a credit card (Skip Roku Pay)

They hide the "Skip this Step" link on the mobile version of the website.

Four Different Ways to Skip Roku Pay (as of November 2020):

  • In your mobile device's browser, locate the "Desktop View" setting and see if it appears at the bottom of the page.

  • Use a computer (laptop/desktop/netbook should not matter), see if it is at the bottom of the page.

  • In the URL/Address Bar, navigate to "https://my.roku.com/payment/link/returning/e/o#"
    (that is where the link directly points to.)

  • OR: In the URL/Address Bar, navigate to "https://my.roku.com/link/channels"
    (that is the step the site instantly redirects you to after the previous link.)

Re: Can I activate without a credit card

You can. But I would not recommend it. Purchase a cheap prepaid card, and put that card on it. If you choose to not put a card on your roku,  you will experience update issues and lag times.

Is there anyway to activate account without providing payment information?

Re: Can I activate without a credit card

ROKU has changed their options so you are forced to activate your device through a credit card registration. All of this information is misleading and needs to be redacted. You can set up your Roku account, but the first time you try to activate a device it will not give you an option to enter the standard 4-digit link. You are now forced to click a link that leads straight to the credit card sign-up even if you have entered an existing NOCC account email.

Re: Can I activate without a credit card

There is another option to consider.  Try using a prepaid reloadable debit card for registration/using your Roku account with it's balance always at "0." 

I use this method successfully (see my previous post) since I don't want Roku to withdrawal any money  from me.  I pay for my paid apps via directly from their own website's payment page.  I don't see the need for any third party handling my money any more than necessary.

Roku does not need to know my actual credit card numbers anyway.  People seem to obey anything requested online without any conscious thought.  Roku does not really need to know EVERYTHING about you do they?
