Customer Question
Have been trying for...

Have been trying for hours to activate my PBS account. Have gone on line to PBS as it directed, re-paid fees for PBS, they say my account is activated. There is a place to active the account but it keeps saying it is inaccurate. I tried going to the suggested Roku activation site and it said it is no longer available.... HELP please

Technician's Assistant: What Roku model do you have?

An Old one I believe it is a 2

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your Roku media player?

Nothing, just keep following the above instructions to no avail

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Video Expert to know before I connect you?

Don't think so... all is fine with PBS but I cannot find the place at PBS to enter the Roku activation code.. so can't watch any shows.

Thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you.

Sorry but to clarify, is the Roku asking you for an activation code or PBS?

Please let me know
