Help & troubleshooting for channels on your Roku device, including adding/removing channels, logging in to, authenticating, or activating a channel, channel-specific playback issues, assistance contacting channel publishers to report issues, and adjusting channel-specific settings.
For more than a week, I have had four specific classic Hollywood channels, all downloaded from Roku's channel store:
Gary Cooper Feature Films
Humphrey Bogart Films
James Stewart Films
Joan Crawford Feature Films
Tonight, the icons (and descriptive icon text) changed to:
TV Time History
TV Time Crime
TV Time Drama
TV Time Biographies
respectively. I went to the channel store and they are showing up there, as well; so, I eliminated a Roku device corruption. I.e., I started to remove and add them back; but the channel store shows these new icons, as well.
For a comparison, go to the channel store (https://channelstore.roku.com/browse) and search for "Rita Hayworth Feature Films". The icons for the other four channels were very similar in design to this one, albeit with different colors/patterns; but the wording on the icons were as listed above.
The channels are still functional and showing up in the title description as those listed above. I.e., the "Gary Cooper Feature Films" channel still shows that description in the Roku title bar (below the Roku | Home in upper left) and the channels all look the same, once inside them.
So, is there a way to revert to the previous icons? Obviously, the new descriptions/icons have NOTHING to do with the channel's content, and cause confusion.
Just a guess, but the channel provider most likely made the changes, for reasons known only to themselves. You would have to ask the channel providers about it. But no, there's no way to edit or alter what icon and/or description the channel provider supplies.
