Newsy on home screen

My home screen should be MY home screen!  When I REMOVE NewsY from my home screen, giving it a 1 star and putting in the comments that it offends me, it SHOULD NEVER SHOW ON MY HOME SCREEN AGAIN!

I removed NewsY for the 2nd time from my home screen a few nights ago (with a rating of 1 star and the comment that the channel offends me) only to have it re-appear on my home screen a few days later.

GET IT TOGETHER ROKU!!!  This is part of the reason that people are SOOO pissed off at everything.  We do NOT AGREE to you pushing your BULLS%^T down our throats!  Pull back for a second and be a REAL human being instead of relying on fake "Polls" that tell you anything you want to hear.  WE AS A PEOPLE ARE SICK OF IT!

Make us thankful for the service you provide rather than appalled and ashamed at the **bleep** we put up with just to watch too many commercials.

Re: Newsy on home screen


Thanks for the inquiry.

When you removed the channel from your home screen and saw it reappear, was it on the same device or another device? Is it possible that someone else may have added the channel back on another device?

Please keep us posted and we will continue to assist you from there.

Re: Newsy on home screen

I agree with o.p. I just saw a huge red ad for CPAC on my home screen from Newsy and I don't want Newsy or anything to do with CPAC on my tv. I'm so upset I would never actually try to contact someone in the middle of the night if this weren't so disturbing. it's definitely not one of the channels I have, or would ever have. I logged out and back on and T*** face was on there! he is the last thing I want to see before I go to bed Smiley Embarassed / What is this? are channels now buying ads on our home feeds???? Please get this Nazi propaganda off of here!
