Adding stick to tv account

I have a Roku tv and just bought a stick for the bedroom. When we set it up, my husband made a Roku email. That’s where the link went to activate my stick. I don’t even know if that’s a legit email?? How do I get my stick to link to my tv so I can have Roku in my bedroom???

Re: Adding stick to tv account

You do not link one device to another. They are linked to a Roku user account. That account email address is displayed on the Settings/System/About menu. That's the email address you have to use to link the Stick to the same account as the TV. But it's not required to link them to the same account. They can be used separately, and that might be desirable if you want to have a different selection of channels on the two devices. 

But if they are currently linked to separate accounts and you want them on the same one, you will have to do a factory reset on the one that isn't linked to the desired account and set it up anew. 

Roku Stick (3600), Ultra (4640), Ultra (4670), Ultra (4800), Premiere (3920), Insignia 720p Roku TV, Sharp 4K Roku TV, Nvidia Shield, Windows 10 Pro x64 running Serviio and Plex on a wired Gigabit network.
