I mean, he's not wrong here about the data collection, it's fairly rampant... check out my DNS blacklists (for the IoT "untrusted" VLAN):
The only device(s) we have which are anywhere even close as chatty would be the Google Home smart speakers, but we have four of them compared with a single Roku TV and they still generated less (combined) requests than the tv. I highly recommend everyone implement some form of DNS blacklisting on their networks. I've found Pi-hole to be both wonderful and fairly easy to set up, but is by no means the only way to approach this.

Krull, feel free to exercise your personal choice in the matter!
We should probably not be insulting people regardless of their posts. Just saying....
Strange, long rant aside, I would remind Iona-D of the EULA agreed to when you actually set up your Roku for the first time.
You do realize that Roku is recording and using the information it gathers about what you watch, right? That's FAR more personal than any data recorded from an online forum.
