My Channel Viewing History

Is there a way to view my viewing history?    For example how long and when did I last watch the Netflix channel,  YouTube,  Prime, etc. 

I understand that Roku cannot tell me exactly what I watched on Netflix but they must know when I last opened the Netflix app and for how long.

I have read that the Roku device itself does not store a viewing history but it must be in some database somewhere.  Also understand that most channel apps have a history.  I want to see a list of channels and when I watched them.

Re: My Channel Viewing History

I have the same frustration. Last night I only saw an hour of a 1-1/2 hour movie because I fell asleep. This morning it wasn't on CONTINUE WATCHING. Want to see the rest of it, but can't remember the name.

PS: Nothing I watch on Amazon Prime ever shows on my Continue Watching list. What gives?!
