How to change Amazon account on Roku?

Tue Feb 22, 2011 6:48 pm

My fiance has a Prime account and I piggy back on her subscription. The Roku was previously setup to use my account though to make purchases. With the addition today I'd like to change the Roku to use her Amazon account but there doesn't seem to be a way to do this. Any suggestions?

Factory Default your roku to clear out whatever settings you have, then relink through Amazon using her login and password. I'm not sure if piggybacking this way is in line with their terms of service though. Doing the default will reset all your channel settings.

I wouldn't do that. It will unlink all your accounts and you'll have to start from the beginning. Just go to your Amazon account and unlink your box, then go to hers ( or set up a VOD account for her if she doesn't have one) and link it there.
