Re: No Link Code displayed on my tv for setup.

Roku doesn't link to your account using that method any longer. Instead, you enter your Roku email address on the TV screen, and you receive an email with a link that activates the device to your account. What model Roku are you trying to set up?

Yes, the Premiere will be using the new activation method. You enter your email address on the TV screen when asked for, then you should receive an email from Roku within minutes with a link to activate your new player onto your user account. Just make sure you enter the email address that you use for your Roku user account.

Still takes me to a page with:

Please enter the link code displayed on your TV

There are no other options on the page.

Re: No Link Code displayed on my tv for setup.

I faced this same issue activating a number of new streaming sticks and I was able to resolve by opening the activation links in a "private" or "incognito" tab.  

I initially spent a couple hours setting up the first Roku going through restarts and resetting a bunch of times, then I finally decided to start with a clean browser session by copying the activation link from the email and pasting it into an incognito window in chrome.  Worked every time for the next couple of streaming sticks that I was activating.
