How do I find the link code on my  TV? I found two numbers but neither was accepted.

Re: Link code

Hi @fayecald,

Thanks for reaching us.

When activating your Roku device, you should follow the Quick Start Guide and complete the on-screen instructions to connect your Roku device to the internet. Once this is complete the Roku device will display a link code on the screen to link your device to your Roku account.
For more information regarding linking your Roku device, please see our support page: How to activate or link your Roku® streaming device

Thanks,

Mary

Re: Link code

when I installed mine, I was never given a link code.  I've searched every option screen available and no topic makes any mention of a link code.

Re: Link code

Roku used to require entering a link code on your Roku user web page. But they've changed that and now you simply enter the email address used by your Roku user account, and they send a link to click that completes the registration. If your Roku is connected to your account and everything is working properly, there's no need to look for a code. You won't find one.

If you are having problems getting a new Roku linked to your account, please provide more details, such as the Roku model number and where you are in the setup process that you're stuck at.

Re: Link code

thank you!  I was afraid not having one would interfere with adding new subscription channels.
