ROKU Channel auto play

I can’t find a way to stop auto play on the ROKU Channel. My provider caps the amount of data that we are allowed and overage charges are substantial. Please advise as to how to turn off auto play. If there is no option - I will delete the channel

Go to Home and do what? I’ve checked all the settings I could access.

Just go to Home and leave it there. That supposedly stops streaming from all Channels.

Go to Home. Then you can turn the TV off or watch a screensaver.

@Clio 

Thanks for the note here. Roku devices currently offer an option in Settings>Network called Bandwidth Saver, which will limit automatic playback after a number of hours. We don't currently have a specific feature to instantly limit autoplay from one episode to another, but you can hit the back button to exit playback of any current title once it completes.

I will be sure to pass your request along to our team to share your interest in adding this feature though. 

 

Thanks again, 

Tanner

I agree with Clio. I want to be able to switch auto play off just like I can on Netflix and Amazon Prime.

@RokuTannerD,

I am also interested in a shut-off for AutoPlay.  I think this is a highly-desired feature for many who like to watch Roku as they fall asleep, but want to conserve bandwidth and don't want it to play all night - or even worse - have to wake up to turn it off (thereby defeating the purpose).
