Is there a way to sign in to a different Roku account without having to do a factory reset and having to setup all my apps and services all over again?
I'm asking is because I recently acquired a slightly used Roku TV that had 1 previous owner. This owner neglected to sign out reset his TV to factory settings before giving it to me, so the TV is still tied to his Roku account. It would be nice to have the option to use this Roku Account that I created today to have the option to rent some non-free movies on the Roku Channel using my payment details. Any help more experienced Roku users could provide would be much appreciated!
In retrospect I probably should have asked my brother to help me do a factory reset while he was hooking it up and before I downloaded and signed in to my various streaming channels, but I was so excited to try it being a first time Smart TV User that it slipped my mind. Sometimes I can be such an Airhead! LOL! Any help that more experienced Roku Smart TV Users could Provide would be much Appreciated!
P.S. Here is my Specific Roku TV Model information: Roku TV: 8112X
You can change the email address on your Roku account at https://my.roku.com. That updates the account itself. The email address shown on your Roku device should update the next time it communicates with the Roku servers.
If you want to change the user account on a Roku device, you have to do a factory reset and configure it with the new account. All your existing installed channels will be removed and whatever channels attached to the new account will be installed. You will have to add any personal login credentials again for channels that require a login, such as Netflix.
