If only email@example.com would respond to my request to be included in the Roku advertising setup, I wouldn't have to go through the headache of dealing with these 3rd party advertising companies. 7 email now with no response... not even an "Out of Office" reply.
I love Roku... it's a great product, but I find myself constantly frustrated at the developer relations and the lack of responses on questions that should be easily answered.
I'd say "RokuJoel will connect you" but he's no more with us apparently.

Fair warning: JohnC is unreliable and RokuCo's ad program has a distinct quality of a mirage. In that money seem within a grasp - but when you reach, it ain't there. I started the process beginning of 2016 and still haven't - just a moment! (quick check of bank account) - yes, still haven't seen a cent. I had the ads working in April, in June i found out the ads people missed setting up reporting on my ads (pretty absurd, sure) - but through the persistent efforts of MikeG (one of the unsung heroes at the Co), wrongs are being righted, an arrears invoice was sent and ... now we wait some more, the Roku ads lord&savior has been sitting on the invoice for almost a month (aging it like a fine wine?!).
My experience is not isolated - i talked to 3 of the lead indie developers that had jumped on the RAF bandwagon and they all had horror stories^ to share. Here is excerpt from one^^ of them: "It took me quite a lot of stress, a ton of emails, and 8 months of begging and harassing anyone and everyone to get any money at all... a real awful situation. I literally lost a lot of sleep over it. It's the main reason I stopped releasing on roku, even though I have like 3 more already written over the previous months that I probably should've published."
In other words - bring lots of food and warm clothes for the road, it's gonna be frosty.
(^) coincidentally now i am watching a marathon of "The Simpsons: Treehouse of Horror" 😛
(^^) the complaints of the others were so alike, i don't think i am in danger of revealing the exact source
