New streaming. Handle on Antenn

Roku added a list of streaming channels to the antenna, however I don’t like to watch majority of them.

If I go into settings it only allows me to remove the entire list. 

is there a way to remove only the ones I don’t want like the antenna channels?

In addition. I selected the same option and it didn't even remove the streaming channels.

I'm just learning Roku. Also, curious how to jump to channel 200? This remote is incapable.

You can at least move thru the list a page at a time instead of a line at a time via the << and >> keys.

Re: New streaming. Handle on Antenn

Yes (thanks). But it doesn't really help when there's however many hundreds of channels there are.

If you press the left arrow while watching live tv, then press it again so you've highlighted the station name, then press * you can change the way you view the channels. However, you can only switch guide to 'recent channels' or 'all channels', so still not useful.

Go Home, Then

    Settings --> TV Inputs --> Live TV --> HIDE ANTENNA CHANNELS 

Setting "Hide steaming TV channels" seems to have no affect whatsover.

You need to select the channels to hide one-by-one (because... Roku).

I don’t want to hide any of the antenna channels. Just some of the streaming channels. It only provides the option to hide ALL streaming channels.

Re: New streaming channels on Antenn

I think it was the streaming channels that I was hiding in that option. I can't really tell the difference, especially since hiding streaming channels had no affect. Basically, "Hide Antenna Channels" gave me the option to hide any of the channels that are available in the menu (why that's not available directly from within the menu is a bit of a mystery). Whether they were antenna or stream I cannot tell.

dieterschmied:

Go to Settings, then TV Inputs, live Tv (this is the antenna)

it give you the option to hide stream in my channels and hide antenna channels  

you can pick and choose which antenna channels to hide but cannot **bleep** and choose which streaming channels to hide  its all or nothing  

the reason I hide channels on antenna are those channels either are extremely week signal or there is no interest in watching 

as I said above the news streaming channel features only allows you to either hide them all or show them all  there are too many and makes searching for the one or two channels that I watch unbearable  there’s just too many of them
