Each time I open the app (I am not a subscriber, yet) and then want to exit, I can’t find any “exit” option on the main screen. The only way I can get out is by unplugging my roku. Am I just not seeing the option? Where is it?
Hey, DB, such a simple solution (I’ll try it but I’m sure it’ll work). I have trained myself to look for the exit button and put all other solutions aside. If it doesn’t work I’ll get back to you. Thanks much. But shame on curiosity stream for holding potential subscribers hostage, at least those that can’t come up with a simple solution you did.
If the apps are coded to standard, they'll close out gracefully and return to the Home screen.
For what it's worth, I've always exited all apps via the Home button. I don't even bother looking for any exit method. For some apps (not all), exiting via a menu system will also log you out of the app, not simply exit. I've never bothered any other way since I bought my first Roku device in 2010.

As already mentioned, the best and easiest way to exit any app/channel is using the home button on the Roku remote. Another option is pressing the back arrow on the Roku remote, but depending on the app/channel, you might need to do that several times, and also verify the exit.
