Re: Needing a PIN number to access channel..?

You (or someone) had to set it up. They don't have one by default. I just checked in the my user account, and you can log into yours on the Roku web site and change/remove the PIN.

No, there's no ability to lock a channel once it's installed. The PIN is only used for adding/removing channels.
