How to Check on a Roku Order

By Chris Davis-Falco

The Roku company sells its digital video box directly to customers through its website. Customers can check on their orders in three ways. They can call customer service using a toll-free telephone number; they can open a support ticket on the Roku website; or they can use a live chat feature offered during certain hours on the company's website.
