These terms govern your access and use of The Roku Channel. The Roku Channel is a streaming video service operated by Roku Inc. and/or its subsidiaries and affiliates that provides access to content and the services made available through The Roku Channel application. By accessing or using The Roku Channel, you are accepting these terms. If you do not agree with these terms, you may not access The Roku Channel.
In accepting these terms, you are also agreeing that: (1) any disputes between us will be settled by binding arbitration (meaning we both give up the right to go to court), and (2) your recurring subscriptions will automatically renew and your account will continued to be charged for those subscriptions until you cancel.
Certain features, functionality, and content made available to you through The Roku Channel may be subject to additional terms, which will be provided to you at the time those services are offered. We reserve the right (at any time) to modify, suspend, or remove certain features, functionality, or content from The Roku Channel.
Using The Roku Channel
engage in or facilitate any unauthorized access to or use of The Roku Channel; or
disable, bypass, circumvent, or interfere with any digital rights management mechanism, security mechanism or access control measures.
Access to The Roku Channel requires an internet connection. Data charges may apply, depending on your data plan, which is your responsibility to pay. The display quality of streaming content on The Roku Channel can vary by device and is affected by many factors, including your internet speeds, WiFi strength, and location.
Roku provides access to content on The Roku Channel that is intended for your personal, non-commercial use only. Some content and services on The Roku Channel may be provided by other content providers, which may be subject to their own terms and policies, including privacy and data gathering practices. Those terms and policies will apply (and you are obligated to abide by them) when you access their content through The Roku Channel.
We may update, add, or remove content, and/or content providers from time to time (possibly without notice to you). We reserve the right to restrict (or remove) access to The Roku Channel (or to certain content) if we have reason to believe that your Roku account has been hacked, stolen, or compromised, or that the content is not properly authorized or licensed in your country or violates applicable law. We may also suspend your access to The Roku Channel if we believe it is necessary to protect Roku or our content providers and partners from what we believe to be fraudulent, improper, or illegal activity.
You are responsible for enabling the content access controls on The Roku Channel so that any age-restricted content is not viewed by persons not meeting the applicable age limits, as specified by law, regulation, or the content provider. Go to support for more information on how to enable these settings and controls on The Roku Channel or your Roku device.
Copying or redistribution of certain content is strictly prohibited, and digital rights management or other technologies may be used to prevent or restrict any copying or re-distributing of any content, which you agree not to try to circumvent or avoid. Certain content is only available in those countries where The Roku Channel has been authorized to be broadcast. If you attempt to access content outside of these countries, the rights granted under these terms will not apply. Some content providers may use technologies to determine or verify your location, and you may not be able to access The Roku Channel outside of your designated country. You are responsible for complying with any applicable laws that apply to your use of The Roku Channel.
Copyright & Content Takedown
If you believe in good faith that certain content appearing on our website or through our products and services infringes upon your copyright, other proprietary rights, or contains prohibited or illegal content, send us a content takedown notice.
Advertising and Promotional Messages
Roku (and/or its partners and content providers) may display advertising and promotional messages on The Roku Channel. We do not make (or imply) any endorsement or recommendation about the advertisers’ products or services. Any interaction you have with these advertisers is entirely at your own risk and between you and the advertiser. Roku is not responsible or liable for your interaction with those advertisers or their products and services.
Subscriptions to content on The Roku Channel are managed through your Roku account. Certain restrictions may apply to these offers (such as content may be accessible only within The Roku Channel, only on Roku devices, or only in certain geographic locations), which will be provided in the offer terms.
If your subscription includes a free trial, you must cancel the subscription before the trial period ends to avoid being charged. You may (or may not) be notified that your free trial is about to end, however, it is ultimately your responsibility to cancel a free trial before it ends (to avoid any charges).
Recurring subscriptions will automatically renew until you cancel. You must cancel your subscription before it renews to avoid the billing of the next subscription term’s fees to your account. We may set your subscriptions on The Roku Channel so that they all have the same billing cycle and the first billing period for additional subscriptions may be prorated to the same billing date as your current subscription(s). No refunds are given for partial term cancellations. If you cancel a subscription before the subscription period ends, your subscription (and your access to its content) will continue until the subscription period ends (it will not automatically renew in this case). Go to support for information on how to manage or cancel a subscription.
Roku’s Proprietary Rights
The Roku Channel is proprietary to Roku (and/or its licensors) and protected by copyright, trademark, and other laws of the United States and other countries. Any rights not expressly granted to you in these terms are reserved by Roku (or its applicable licensors). You may not remove, alter, or obscure any copyright, trademark, service mark or other proprietary rights notices incorporated in or accompanying The Roku Channel or from any content provided via The Roku Channel.
The Roku Channel is provided “AS IS” and on an “AS AVAILABLE” basis and to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, WE DISCLAIM ANY WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR NON-INFRINGEMENT, AND ANY WARRANTIES ARISING OUT OF COURSE OF DEALING OR USAGE OF TRADE. We make no warranty that the services provided by The Roku Channel will meet your requirements or will be available on an uninterrupted, secure, or error-free basis. We make no warranty regarding the quality of any information or content provided through The Roku Channel.
Limitation of Liability
WHEN PERMITTED BY LAW, WE WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES. TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, OUR TOTAL LIABILITY TO YOU FROM ALL CAUSES OF ACTION AND UNDER ALL THEORIES OF LIABILITY, INCLUDING FOR ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES, IS LIMITED TO THE PURCHASE PRICE (THAT YOU PAID) FOR THE ROKU CHANNEL SUBSCRIPTION FOR THE PAST SIX MONTHS OR $50 USD (WHICHEVER IS MORE). IN ALL CASES, WE WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY LOSS OR DAMAGE THAT IS NOT REASONABLY FORESEEABLE.
Some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion of certain warranties or the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, so the disclaimers and limitations above may not apply to you.
Arbitration of Disputes
All claims arising out of or relating to your Roku account or any Roku product or service will be resolved exclusively through arbitration, according to these Dispute Resolution Terms, unless you opted out or another exception applies. We both agree that all claims may only be conducted on an individual basis (and not in a class, consolidated, or representative action).
Governing Law, Jurisdiction and Venue
These terms are governed by the laws of the State of Delaware, without regard to any conflict of laws principles that may provide the application of the law of another jurisdiction. If, for any reason, a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration, we both agree that the exclusive jurisdiction and venue for any legal proceeding is either federal court of the Northern District of California or state court in Santa Clara County, California.
These terms are between you and Roku and no other person has any right to enforce these terms on your behalf. Your rights are not transferable. Each paragraph is intended to operate separately. If any court or relevant authority determines that any terms are invalid or unenforceable, those terms will be enforced to the maximum extent permissible and the remaining terms will remain in full force and effect. If we delay or chose not to enforce these terms, that will not mean that we have waived our rights or that you do not have to comply with these terms. These terms may be amended by us from time to time. If we make material changes to these terms, we will post the revised terms on our website and may also notify you through your Roku product or your Roku account. Your use after the changes go into effect will constitute your acceptance of those changes. If you do not agree to the new terms, you may not be able to continue using The Roku Channel with your Roku account.
If you have any questions about these terms, you can contact us.
