Re: when I select a movie on a channel the selection will not stop

Hi @slajoice,

Thank you for posting here in the Roku Community.

We're sorry about your experience with the Roku channel. Keep rolling thru the selection. We want to help you with this.

What troubleshooting steps have you already taken to try to resolve the issue?

Did you try to Restart your Roku device? Also, have you tried to remove the channel and see if it helps?
