Does anyone out there know why Roku has decided to make it virtually impossible to contact them directly to ask a question?
I'm looking to make a purchase, but their ridiculous approach to support is making it extremely difficult.
If ANYONE out there knows an email address, or a course of action that DOES NOT lead to this half-hearted "community" self help type thing, please could you provide it.
The questions I need answered are not covered by the handful of help topics Roku has provided, and it is not covered in any of these "community" threads.
Any pointers would be appreciated,
PS. I'll be blown away if someone actually responds with some useful information.
I totally agree. There seems to be no way to contact Roku by phone, email or chat. The answer you were given was, to put it kindly, unhelpful. I am having real problems and answers from "the community" isn't cutting it.
I sent back my faulty Roku player to their warehouse and they received it. Now I need to know when will they ship me a replacement? I need a telephone number to talk to someone.
Thanks for the inquiry.
If you have contacted our Support team previously regarding your RMA, feel free to reach out to them again to follow up regarding the issue you are experiencing as they would best be able to assist you moving forward.
Please be aware that there may be a delay in response time from our Support team during this period.
I see that now you cannot contact them directly...when I first bought my Roku I had some issues with the remote and was able to contact them for resolution. Now have to go thru community which is really not very good customer service.
My Roku never works correctly and there’s no one to talk to. I literally want to smash it I’m so fed up with the **bleep** service
Thank you RokuDanny-R,
Thank you for the feedback.
Unfortunately your response only serves to emphasize my point.
It appears you only have one point of contact, and that is dedicated SOLELY to addressing Account and Billing issues - a very narrow sub-section of enquiries that people might have.
You guys have obviously done this by design, perhaps due to insufficient staff, or insufficiently trained staff to handle "proper" communications.
For your interest, my question was sales related.
It appears that your company is not too interested in answering questions that might result in the sale of your products.
Maybe selling your Roku product range is NOT your top priority. Maybe you've decided sales are no longer important at this point in time, and you wish to concentrate EXCLUSIVELY on supporting your clients with billing issues.
This leads me to believe there are probably PLENTY of those.
Which pretty much answers my sales-related question.
I won't be purchasing hardware from a company with so many billing and account enquiries that they need to dedicate ALL staff communications to this narrow aspect.
Thanks again for your feedback, and for highlighting the veracity of my original questions.
