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.
