Setting Live tv to come on

I got the roku streaming stick for my grandparents so they can watch their westerns. is it possible to have the live tv western channel come on each time they press the power button? They are not very technologically knowledgeable so I’m not sure they can navigate the home screen.

Agreed. Press * then choose Move Channel, and move the thumbnail to the #1 spot. A step further would be to add 'Old School Social Studies Films' channel for them and make it #2. Full of old archive & public domain films.

Re: Setting Live tv to come on

 I've had Plex for a couple of years with the Plex Pass, and never use it. However, I would like to. I know that Plex has live TV support, but I can never understand how to do it. Is there any way I can get steps on how to go from it being on my desktop with basically nothing on it to streaming live TV? And assume I don't have what's needed other than a computer and internet. Kodi nox
