While trying to load HULU on my TV (I use a ROKU streaming stick), I received a message having to do with verification (which contains a code) which was sent to an email that was not my email. I have logged on to check the email on file and it is correct. I have no idea why this is happening. I have tried to contact ROKU, and aside from one response asking for additional information, it has been radio silence. I have done a factory reset as well as a restart. ANY thoughts????
Thank you for your questions (and for the record, there is no such thing as a dumb question). I checked the "settings-system-about" and my email is correct there. I performed a restart, then a factory reset, then another restart for good measure. My TV is not a smart TV, so I have to use the streaming stick.
I can't imagine where that other email address is coming from. I have seen strange reports of channels/apps being logged into someone else's account, but I can't recall any having to do with Hulu. Does it display on the TV screen that it sent an email to this mysterious email address or is this something that's happening on a Hulu webpage?
I don't know how Hulu's customer service is, but you might try asking them about it.

I was online with HULU for about 3 hours (no exaggeration), to see if it could be resolved on Hulu's end, but the prompt asked me to log in using the Roku email address (the one that is neither on file with Roku or my real address).
