Good lord PLEASE allow us to turn off auto play on The Roku Channel! Creates major controversy in our house when I say it’s time to turn off the TV, but the kids always see there is yet another cartoon beginning. So annoying to not be able to stop this...
I just helped my parents (in their 70s, retired) set up their Roku and the first show they watched was Alf on the Roku channel.
I spoke with my mother this morning. She shared concerns because yesterday they used 9 gigabytes of days, and their internet plan only allows 300 gigs total before overcharges begin (and before you ask, they live in a rural area and do not have much competition in the way of internet providers). I explained that watching one Woodie if any show would not use up nine gigs worth of data. After further investigation, we figured out that autoplay was on and it was still streaming all alpha episodes and they were already on season one episode 16. I spent time with her over the phone remotely trying to figure out how to turn off autoplay on the Roku channel, but I could not find a solution. This is concerning because they are on a limited data plan on their internet cable provider.
If a "turn off autoplay" solution has been implement for this channel, could you please respond? Because I would like to help my parents turn off autoplay so that they do not receive a large bill than normal from their ISP. Otherwise, I will recommend to my parents to watch a different channel in the future. And I would kindly ask that you pass on to the Roku developers to have a "discontinue autoplay" option on this channel. Thank you.
