Important: You must create the account from a computer BEFORE starting activation of Roku device.

Roku will ask users for a payment method and billing address and uses it to select apps/channels available through Channel Store ie those available to UK or US or Canadian account holders. In order to setup a Roku account that is "compatible" with UK or US or Canadian channels you need to select "United Kingdom or United States or Canada" as country and use Post/ZIP code of your actual billing address. Don’t worry nothing will be charged to this account unless you purchase a channel, but most are free.

If your device still does not show UK or US or Canadian channels (depending on your preference) then you'll need to create new account, do "factory reset" and "link" device to that new account.

You can check the account is correctly created by the currency symbol that shows “Your account balance is £0.00”

Then connect the device to your TV, switch on and follow the on screen instructions.
