Pin required to add channels

Roku fail!!! I’m returning my device.

So, you have to enter a pin to add a channel. Slow clap... But you can still search and see all the content up front. For example search “p o r n” and up comes all the available channels with all the graphic images. The PIN should be required before even accessing the Add Channel/Search menu. 

I am a recovering p o r n addict. Thank God my marriage survived. Now I want to protect my family. I have three sons and they are worth more to me than some stupid TV app.

Step up your game Roku. Thanks and goodbye.

Re: Pin required to add channels

There are exactly two apps that come up when I search for "porn"

  • Food Porn Screensaver
  • Food Porn Main Dishes

What apps are you seeing?

I already unplugged and boxed it up. But, I saw a long list of available apps to add. Anyone else in the community care to screen shot what they see.

There was more information in the post besides a "peace out". I'm pretty sure that there are others concerned with parental controls and how this device behaves. So, don't troll me for sharing my experience and allowing others to see that I bailed on a product lacking features important to me.
