Customer Review

Reviewed in the United States on January 23, 2020
Bought this to stream Amazon prime videos but unfortunately never used it because of the unreasonable (my opinion) set up data requirements. Connection to my TV and WiFi network was easy. The unit powered up and the "set up" menu appeared as expected. The menu directs you to login to the Roku web site with a second device to activate your unit. The Roku site requires you set up a Roku account to activate your unit.

This is where I ran into my issue with the device. To set up an account you MUST enter your name, your address, your gender, your date of birth and your credit card information. Gender, address and birthday info is irrelevant and none of their bloody business as far as I'm concerned. Credit card information is also irrelevant if I only use the free streaming videos.

So, unless you don't mind providing personal information to a unknown entity on the internet don't waste your money on this item. It make work very well, what little I saw worked fine, but blindly providing unnecessary personal information on the internet to any entity is foolish.
