Roku activation

When I go online to active my roku. After I put in Roku code. It’s all in German. I’ve tried many times to change the language settings on my phone. It does not work. I can’t continue setting up my roku because it is in German. How do I fix that?

Re: Roku activation

Where are you?

Are you using a VPN?

Assuming USA, Canada, or UK, and no VPN, when you start a Roku from factory default (or after factory reset), the first option is the language. Choose the appropriate language with the remote.

If you've already done this, do it again. Slowly and carefully. Make sure you didn't do one thing, thinking  you did another.
