Roku Channel Autoplay - how to shut it off?

So I signed up for Paramount Plus via the Roku channel because it offers 30 days free versus the 7 days if you sign up directly through Paramount.  Paramount's own app offers an autoplay shut-off option, but the Roku channel does not. 

Am I missing something? I don't think I am, I searched for quite a while.  Does anyone here know how to turn off autoplay in the Roku channel?

I never liked autoplay after episodes end, and shut it off on apps like Max and Netflix, but the Roku channel offers no such option.  Same with Apple TV Plus, don't know why they don't have the sense to let people shut autoplay off...

Same here, I cannot turn off the autoplay, which means I will no longer watch much of anything on the Roku channel. The LOUD commercials also nail in Roku channel coffin for me.
