You know what would be nice?

If somebody could just post customer service numbers..........one........after another...............day after day.
One has to wonder what's wrong with the person(s) who do this.

It's called spam. It's not Roku's support number they're posting.
Yeah, I got some Rokus.

Scambuckets have made quite a business for themselves posting fake customer support numbers and websites all over the Internet. Not only for Roku but for other companies also. When a confused customer calls for free support, they end up seeing these scumbuckets fake phone number posted all over goggle then call and are asked for a credit card to continue. Many people especially old people like me fall for this scam. Wish someone from the FTC, ATF, EPA, FCC, FAA, FBI, CIA or NASA would just shut them down.
Roku is my favorite streamer, mkvXstream.com has my favorite Roku channels

Hard to shut them down when they aren't located within the US. I'm certain these are all offshore locations.

It is pretty hard to stop spammers from posting an advertisement.
