Why do I need to create a Roku account?
Before you can start streaming, channels must be downloaded and installed on your streaming player. To accomplish this, your streaming player must be linked to a Roku account. With a Roku account, not only can you add channels from the Roku Channel Store, but you can also manage your subscriptions, view your purchase history, and update payment method.

Why do I need to enter a credit card?

What should I do if my streaming player is not connecting to my wireless network?
Your streaming player connects to your wireless network the same as your laptop or smartphone. If these other devices can access the internet, then your streaming player should be able to do the same. Make sure to select the same network name, and enter the same password you use with the other devices. Remember that passwords are case-sensitive and easy to enter incorrectly.

Can I take my Roku streaming player with me when I travel?
Yes. You can bring your streaming player and watch your favorite entertainment when you travel. Remember to also bring the power adapter, remote and any cables you use to connect your streaming player at home, and make sure your destination has a good internet connection.
