"Roku wants your credit card...why?"0.5 starson by wburychka
Pros: Price, size of the box, support of all popular streaming services
Cons: You've got to give Roku your credit card before the device will be activated, even though you're not buying anything from Roku. Sony and Vizio have no such requirement for their streaming devices. I've had identity theft and stolen credit card numbers,
Summary: The credit card requirement is outrageous. Don't we have enough risk to credit card theft without giving our credit card to someone whose product we have already purchased? I know some people create a Paypal account for stupid requirements like this, then close the account afterward, but I'm not willing to go to that trouble when there are alternatives.This box is going back to amazon.com today.
