Thanks for the inquiry.

Roku does not charge a monthly service subscription using a Roku device or Roku TV. There is also not a charge for creating a Roku account.

However, you may be charged a monthly subscription for services, channels, or partner content available with Premium Subscriptions.

For more information about charges when using a Roku device, visit our Support page here: Will I be charged a monthly subscription or rental fees?


Thanks,
Danny

To add: Be VERY careful when setting up your Roku account and linking your TV or device. There are many scam sites that rig search engines to point to them, and you end up with a company that charges a ton of money to 'help' you. If you end up with some message saying to call a number, YOU HAVE BEEN HACKED! Do a factory refresh on the device and try again using the info below.

Always start at this link:

https://www.roku.com/

Use it to create your account, and then to link/Activate your Roku to that account.
