default channel list has many many unavailable channels

Why does a brand new roku Express come with so many channels that are unavailable? Most annoying to have to click on each one and then remove it if it doesn't play. Is there a better way?

Re: default channel list has many many unavailable channels

Examples, please? Or is this a rhetorical question?

Re: default channel list has many many unavailable channels

Sounds fishy. If it's on your list of available channels, and you add it to your channels list, assuming you have the bandwidth necessary these channels should work.

Examples, please.
Yeah, I got some Rokus.

Well drat. I removed them already. These are not ones I added from the channel store. They were part of the list on Home that were there when we first turned it on.

If you import a Roku into a region that that it's not supported in or if you import a Roku designed for USA into Canada or another country, that is expected.
