Can you sign in to a different Roku Account on your Smart Tv

Hi,

I recently acquired a very slightly used Roku TV that had 1 previous owner,  This owner neglected to sign out reset his TV to factory settings before giving it to me, so the TV is still tied to his Roku account.  My question is: is there a way to sign in to a different Roku account without having to do a factory reset and having to setup all my apps and services all over again.  The only reason I'm asking is the fact that it would be nice to have the option to use this Roku Account that I created today to have the option to rent some non-free movies on the Roku Channel using my payment details.  Any help more experienced Roku users could provide would be much appreciated!  In Retrospect I probably should have asked my brother to help me do a factory reset while he was hooking it up and before I downloaded and signed in to my various streaming channels, but I was so excited to try it being a first time Smart TV User that it slipped my mind.  Sometimes I can be such an Airhead!  LOL!  Any help that more experienced Roku Smart TV Users could Provide would be much Appreciated!

P.S. Here is my Specific Roku TV Model information: Roku TV: 8112X

TCL Model: 32S321

Serial Number: YKOOV0087991

Re: Can you sign in to a different Roku Account on your Smart Tv

Unfortunately, the answer is no. The only way to change the Roku account the device is assigned to is a factory reset. 

You can log into many subscription channels with different credentials, but The Roku Channel is tied to the Roku user account the device is linked to.
