Any way to manually tune to a specific OTA frequency?

The antenna app can auto-scan for OTA channels, but I want to create a custom channel, tuned to a specific frequency, as is possible on samsung tvs (https://www.samsung.com/au/support/tv-audio-video/manually-tune-samsung-tv/).

Is there a way to do that on a Roku tv?

Re: Any way to manually tune to a specific OTA frequency?

Unfortunately, no. Roku TV does not offer any way to manually add an OTA channel, nor to directly tune to an OTA channel. One exception might be using the Roku app on a phone or tablet. It does have a keyboard function, that has numbers as well as letters. What I don't know if it works to select a channel, as I've never used it for that. But that's the only possible exception. Roku doesn't offer a remote with a number pad, nor an onscreen virtual number pad.

Really dumb of them to do it this way. Had to scan 20 times to get a local station for football. Waste of an hour.
