How best to mass-delete unwanted channels?

My Roku account has several hundred channels that we had added (and probably should not have).

 

While I can add them over the web, the only way to delete is on each device, one channel at a time, right?

 

It would be ideal if we could manage the channel list on the website.

 

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

 

Alan

I agree with the bit about removing on the web site.

You might as well Factory reset and start from scratch.

Settings/System/Advanced System Settings/ Factory reset

If you add or delete on one device it affects all devices connected to the same Roku account.

  • Roku Streaming Stick +, 3810X, Ser YH0059427035, wifi - Samsung UN55ES6100
  • Roku Streaming Stick, 3600X, Ser 5S56D8240827, wifi - JVC EM37T
  • TCL Roku TV 43S425/C107X, Ser X000001R60KV, wifi

Do the reset and set up another account.

This is stupid. Each device is registered individually. There is no reason you shouldn't be able to add and delete channels via the website. Roku, please step up and address this!

That said, I love my Roku units. Best accessories I've purchased for TVs. If Roku fixed this, I couldn't say a single negative thing about them.

this wont work, it will factory reset , and when logged back in it will automatically restore all app you didnt want in the first place, you are married to the app, very frustrating on how easy is is to get alot of app, but not uninstall them

it seems to truly factory reset it is to use another email address, so every time you want to wipe it clean create a new roku account if your not buying anything with the actual account , flood roku with as many email since they make deleting so difficult , let them weed thru like a million phony email just to wipe a device, that's there fault

It's just silly that Roku won't allow you to customize from your desktop. Every other service does but not Roku. I hope they're reading the comments here...
