who's brilliant idea was it to now "force" installation of all channels during setup

Jump to solution

any thought to maybe asking the user? not a very user friendly way of doing things. instead of all of the stupid "topics" that are so clever (increasing fun factor, not!!!!) you could you know channels and allow selection. weird concept giving users choice.

Roku will only install the apps you have already on your account. It forces nothing.

When a new device is added, Roku presents you with options, but you don't have to accept them. I never do, and I never get any new apps when I add a Roku to my account.
