I recently connected my Roku3
Foolishly I reset to factory default, it then would not proceed until I made an internet connection, so I connected it to the web.
It then downloaded the latest firmware which launched a wizard that started an ACTIVATION process asking me to enter a code it displayed to the webpage at http://roku.com/link
That page accepted my code but did not activate my Roku3
The activation wizard then asked me if I already had an account or whether I wanted to create on now.
I started the account creation procedure, entering email, etc but on the following it wanted my payment details, there was no option to bypass this.
In this world of major companies being hacked I am not prepared to store my PRIVATE financial details on ROKU or any other website.
Can someone tell me how to bypass this
My Roku3 has not been activated and my feeling towards ROKU are starting to get negative.
How can I use this product without being FORCED to enter private and confidential information?
I should point out that this activity is illegal in the EU under data protection and privacy legislation, I believe the FTC has similar rules.
