Activation Code

Postby tomsg69 » Mon Dec 07, 2009 9:54 pm

Hi,
I just received my Roku video player, and followed all the directions to set it up. To activate my code, it asked me to go to www.roku.com/link, and enter the code shown on the screen; but when I tried to go to the website it kept asking me to enter my username and password, which I do not have.
I called Roku (888-600-7658), and got a rep from Netflix instead. The person told me that this way to activate the code was something new from Roku.
Has anybody had a similar same experience trying to activate the code? I thought you were supposed to go to www.netflix.com/activate to do so.
What should I do to activate the code in this case?
Thanks!

Oddly enough I had to reactivate Netflix through my Roku the other day...I think it was last Tuesday or Wednesday? It wasn't hard to do since I keep a laptop in the family room now, but odd that it happened nevertheless. I've had a Roku for several years and only had to activate initially and when there was that major upgrade that caused a lot of devices to need it again a while back.

Where do I go to enter my activation code? I've opened an account but nowhere is there a place to enter the activation code. I'm talking about the code given on screen to activate the player.

Unless things have drastically changed when the code is on the screen the address is also there.

As Gil stated above, there's always a web address on the same screen with the activation code, for both channels and the box, telling you where to go on your computer to enter the code.
