Explore the world of entertainment with Roku.com/link
The Roku is a popular and pliable device, compatible with several platforms. It streams video content from the internet and lets you enjoy a range of entertainment including movies, series, news and a range of other genres. There are some subscriptions that let you watch live cable as well. Which also means, serious cord-cutters can ditch the cable and migrate to the Roku to watch the content of their choice, just like they would on the cable but at rates that are much, much cheaper. First, create a Roku account and thereafter go to Roku.com/link to enter the activation code that is received.
Creating Roku.com/link account (Roku Account Setup)
To enter the code at Roku.com/link, first, go to roku.com and create an account. At the WELCOME TO YOUR ROKU ACCOUNT screen, click on CREATE ACCOUNT.
Thereafter at the CREATE YOUR ROKU ACCOUNT form, enter the FIRST NAME, LAST NAME, EMAIL, VERIFY EMAIL, PASSWORD and VERIFY PASSWORD.
After confirming to the agreement click on CONTINUE to complete account creation.
Device and setting up
Roku’s hardware setup process comes with some rather simple steps. The set top box sits outside your entertainment center and connects to the TV through the HDMI. Some devices like the Roku Express Plus support composite connectivity as well. If you are using a Roku Streaming Stick, then plug it directly into the TV’s HDMI port. The fact remains that Roku’s set-top boxes are extremely powerful and some of them come with signal boosters as well.
- Once you have plugged the hardware in, power it up and follow guidelines as they appear on the screen
- Sync and pair the remote by inserting the accompanying batteries
- Then connect the device to the network

How to find Roku link code from TV?
The Roku Link Code on the TV is displayed only after all the steps of the hardware, software and wireless/wired setup have been completed. The hardware setup requires pairing the remote along with the player and then completing all the necessary questions or prompts that appear on the screen.
Thereafter, the software updates are automatically performed by the device once the network is set up. One of the steps requires users to create an account. For those who have already created the account, just have to login and enter the code information that appears on the screen.

Roku Activation Issues
Roku Error Code 001
The error code 001 simply means that the Roku device is not connected. For this, power off the player and remove cables from the router and the Roku. Thereafter power up the device again, while connecting the ETHERNET as well. The issue should have subsided by now.
Error code 003
- This error is indicative of the inadequacy of the TV’s communication with the Roku server’s update. It could also mean that there is a firewall issue where the Roku refresh server is unavailable due to an inappropriate DNS.
- Restart the complete set of associated devices including the router and the TV to alleviate the issue.
- The USB can facilitate the manual refresh as well by HOME x 5 + FORWARD x 3 + REWIND x 2. Click on OK once you see the UPDATE SOFTWARE option.
Error Code 009
- While the Roku device is connected to the router, the internet may not be available. For total loss of connection, it is best to consult with the ISP. Alternatively, change the DNS settings on the modem.
- To ascertain whether the internet is indeed in working condition, check if another device gets enabled with the same network. If yes, change the configurations on the player.
- Additionally, check for firmware updates
- Next, change wireless channels and modify the ACL/MAC address filtering
- Change DNS server information only after you have managed the Wireless Security Mode
Roku Error Code 11
- When a connection to the Roku fails, the error code 11 appears. The device is unable to recognize and connect to the Roku Software Update Server.
- At this time, reset the streaming player from the SETTINGS + NETWORK + REPEAT GUIDED SETUP.
- All instructions provided by the player have to be performed in full
Roku Error Code 014
- Essentially, Roku’s error code 14 means that the player is unable to get on to the local network. To resolve unplug the router from its power and plug it back after reboot is complete.
- Additionally, the router’s security mode could also be altered to WPA-PSK (TKIP).
- It is also advised to bring the player closer to the router to receive better signals.
Purple Screen on Roku
- The purple screen or the HDCP ERROR DETECTED issue means that there has been a handshaking error
- Before embarking on a solution, it is best to retrace all the steps for setting up the player
- If the purple screen error is still visualized, disconnect all the cords including the HDMI to the TV from the Roku to power it off
Connecting all the devices
- During reconnection, place the cables back into their place securely and firmly
- For continuous purple screen errors, it is best to change the HDMI input to the TV. Use a cable that is less than 6 feet in length and is devoid of any defects.
- Trying switching over to the AVR if possible and connect the Roku into the TV directly
- In the end, change the HDMI cable or even the TV
- Change the DISPLAY TYPE from SETTINGS + DISPLAY TYPE on the device. This setting is also an incessant cause of the HDCP error
- For first time errors with the HDCP check if the TV indeed supports HDCP. Additional information, in this case, is usually available with the manufacturer of the appliance.
HDMI input does not support HDCP 2.2 error message
- The HDCP 2.2 lets you play 4K and HDR content and Roku’s latest Ultra, Premiere and Premiere Plus all of them support 4K streaming.
- The HDCP 2.2 error means that one of the devices within the associated chain of TV and player is not compliant with HDCP.
- Device manuals invariably provide all the solutions
- Check if the TV port is indeed compliant with HDCP 2.2
- If you are running the device through an AVR, check for the AVR’s HDCP 2.2 compatibility.
