Step 2: Add Roku Payment Information to your account.

Step 3: Your developer account must be connected to a Roku device. If you want to link an existing Roku device to your Roku Developer Account, you can either factory reset it (located under Options > System > Advanced system settings > Factory reset) or buy a new Roku device. To link your developer account to a Roku device, simply login to the Roku device with the same email as your developer account. Please leave this Roku device dedicated to this account.

Step 4: To Verify your Roku Developer Account, navigate to Manage My Channels to receive this verification email. Select Developer SDK, provide your channel name, and then select Continue.
