It is a confusing task to activate Roku without using a credit card or a PayPal account, but following the right steps will help you do it quite easily. Now, get more details about those steps in the post that is written below.
Whenever we have to link our existing Roku account to our Roku TV we go to some URL like www Roku com link or www Roku com link and enter the code on TV onto the dialog box and it is activated.
However if we want to make a new Roku account the process is not even remotely related. Unlike the Roku link which is a one step process, Roku new account needs information to our account like either a PayPal or a credit card account hence making it a bit difficult and unreliable if we just want to see free channels or use it during the trial period or maybe we have just applied for a card and waiting for it to arrive.
While making a new account from our PC, Roku account setup introduces a few checkmarks which are blatant and a deal breaker if one is sceptical about paying for service in advance. Roku customer service need to be contacted for one of the ways to bypass the problem. It is one of the methods to take a look at it.
Now there are two types of Roku support for two major problems so we need to know which one we are dealing with. One is for Roku link code activation diagnostics and other for bypassing the credit card or PayPal account info entrance page.
Solution to the problem:
Once we have filled in our credentials like our personal info and all once we encounter entering PayPal or credit card, we can contact customer support from where they would give us another URL in which there is an option to skip credit card and PayPal so that way we can skip the option and use Roku for either trial period or use free services or may be wait for our credit card to come and then fill it in.
Second option is something which is present right there but we do not see it. When we are registering using our web browser Chrome on PC, when we reach the cc# dialog box there is a skip icon on lower right corner of screen so it is easy to skip it but laymen often do not see it as it is made that way.
If we are using Roku for prime video or Netflix, it is justified to not give credit card info hence safeguarding against payment at one click so we can follow the above mentioned steps to not enter our monetary data credentials.
Also if you don’t want the hassle to contact customer support, here is the link where skip option is available which is not given on the website. There is another link, i.e., www.owner.Roku.com/signup-nocc where no credit card info or PayPal info is to be given and we can fully use numerous free features of Roku without caring for if instantly deductions are made from our account.
However, it is responsibility of Roku to provide this link with the one given there but it is not provided because it’s easy to mint money at one click once the information related to account is already put in. It creates a psychological factor too so Roku has stooped to such methods of making money out of unsuspecting customer base which can be easily avoided.
