I have the same issue.  Roku currently offers no phone support. And online support requires that I log into her account. But I don't have her account info. I entered her email address and clicked forgot password but I don't get a password reset link.  So as of now, I can't access any support options.  

Please tell me how to address this issue. 

Thank you.

Thank you for the response. But the only two options in the link you sent are to select "Forgot Password" on a computer login, or to access her account via her Roku. Neither of those is a viable solution. The Forgot Password link does not generate a response, and I don't have access to her Roku box. She passed in November and the equipment was all discarded then.

Hi @Malachaidc,

We appreciate your contact.

We're sorry to hear about your loss. We suggest unsubscribing the channels from TV. On your TV, highlight the channel and press the * button to manage the subscription and cancel the subscription. I've provided a link to go into further detail: How do I manage or cancel a Roku® Pay subscription?

I don't have access to her tv or Roku device - they were discarded when we cleaned out the house.  I can't access any of your online support options because you require a login and I don't know her login. And the forgot password option doesn't work. And you don't offer phone support.

She passed away in November. I'd like to get an account refund for the billings since her death.  I was able to do that with everything from her health insurance to her social security. I didn't expect Roku to be the service that made it impossible. 

This is too hard and not a positive customer experience.  It's not a lot of money. You can keep it.  I give up.

When you use the support site use the same login you're using here (don't worry about it not being your loved ones' account) then you can explain the problem.

Danny,

Your advice is garbage. There is no way to contact Customer Service unless you login to the deceased person's account, and those of us here find ourselves without passwords and access sending us into a painful loop. This seems suspicious. I personally will just go ahead and cancel my late husband's credit card that was paying you. I do want to continue the service, but I see no way to simply change it over to me and my credit card. If you can help us out, I'm sure we would all appreciate a better solution. Losing a loved one is hard enough.
