Either You Agree Not To Sue, Or Roku Disables Your TV And Dongle

Roku is making headlines this week and it’s not because it makes great TVs.

Roku users around the US woke up this week to discover that, if they don’t accept Roku’s new license agreement (EULA), their devices are disabled.

The new agreement was deployed immediately after users received an email that announced the following:

“We have made changes to our Dispute Resolution Terms, which describe how you can resolve disputes with Roku. We encourage you to read the updated Dispute Resolution Terms. By continuing to use our products or services, you are agreeing to these updated terms.”

What is the update?

Well, it’s so users can’t sue Roku. The new ToS includes a forced arbitration agreement under which Roku users can’t sue or take part in class action lawsuits against Roku. Unfortunately today, that’s a common clause in most services. If you don’t agree to it, your Roku dongle or TV will just be disabled, unfortunately.

If you want to opt out of Roku’s almost abusive EULA, fortunately there is a way and Techcrunch described all the steps you need to take.
