@Randyarvelo07, Direct Publisher is dead, so the answer is, "you can't".

Re: implement a custom Roku channel

Roku is discontinuing the Direct Publisher system in January 2024 and no new Direct Publisher channels are being accepted.  Last July, developers were given six months to convert their apps to the new system which replaces Direct Publisher before all Direct Publisher apps will be taken down in January.

Meanwhile, you've posted to a forum for Roku users, where few, if any, will be able to help. The Developers forums are a couple of doors down the hall: https://community.roku.com/t5/Developers/ct-p/channel-developers
