How do i permanently block and/or disable Disney+?

How do I prevent DISNEY+ channel from being added back to my device everytime I delete it?

So far I have removed DISNEY+ from my Roku seventeen times tonight and within 10 minutes what ever program I am streaming it gets interrupted to perform a "Updating Channels" when Disney+ is reinstalled to my device without authorization or permission.

This same behavior holds true for ESPN, HULU, AppleTV, and Crackle.

No matter how  many times I remove the channels they get reinstalled within  minutes.

How do I make this stop?

Or better yet what IP addresses or domains do i need to block to prevent the Roku from ever connecting to these channels?

First thing I would do is log into my account at and set a PIN for the account. While there, designate that the PIN will be required to add a channel.

I setup a PIN years ago, I even change the PIN and account password regularly.

Good question, why didn't that prevent Disney+ from being added the first time?

Was it force added in the last firmware update?

Going to check and reset my PIN & P/W.
