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

Just go to Home.

From now on if people dont upvote me and do as I say I will consider holding my breath and selling my Roku's.

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

Re: ROKU Channel auto play

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.

Re: ROKU Channel auto play

@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

Re: ROKU Channel auto play

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