Re: How can I change the area my Roku device is set up for from one area to another


This question has come up before and Roku has never reported a way to transfer an account between regions. All you can do is create a NEW account in your new location and link your Roku to that.

To link to a new account, you'll have to do a factory reset on your Roku and set it up all over again.
(Settings > System > Advanced system settings > Factory reset)

When you set up the Roku after doing the Factory reset, be sure you are connected to the internet via an IP located in your new area (not via a VPN with its server elsewhere). Link your Roku to a new Roku account in your new region. And just to be sure, it's a good idea to identify the account with an email address also located there.
