How to create a channel shortcut WITHIN a channel shortcut?

Is there a way to create a channel shortcut WITHIN a channel?

For example, I can watch "Hallmark" movies within Peacock (I'm a Peacock subscriber).  I want to create a shortcut to THAT Hallmark channel/Hallmark programs. 

If I try to add the regular Hallmark Movie channel shortcut, I am asked to login to Hallmark (for which I do not subscribe). So, that doesn't work.

The same can be said for wanting to create a "Smithsonian" channel shortcut from within Paramount+ (I am a Parmount+ subscriber).

IS THIS POSSIBLE?  If not, it would sure be a nice feature.

The developer of the channel/app would have to provide such a thing.

Thank you.  That makes sense.

However, it would sure be nice if someday Roku could allow the user to create a custom shortcut to anywhere; similar to how you can create a shortcut to a specific web page within a specific website.  Wishful thinking, I know.
