Never got an activation code on the tv screen during setup

Trying to get an activation code never came up on screen can’t complete activation. Calling Roku is of no help. Will tell everyone I can not to have any dealings with Roku of any kind. Spread the word.

Re: Never got an activation code on the tv screen during setup

You don't get a code on screen anymore, after choosing language, putting in your internet credentials, you then enter an email address. Now go to your cellphone or computer and check your emails for one from Roku. In it theres a link to finish activation on-line. So, to do over try a factory reset.
