Different devices sharing the same channels menu.

I have two Sharp Roku Smart TVs. I was setting one up for my daughter and noticed that when setting up channels, the channel list is changed for both TVs. I was wondering if there was a way to make it so this does not happen and each TV has its own independent channel menu. I have channels on my TV that I do not want her to access without my supervision.

All Roku devices on the same Roku account will have the same apps. If it add an app to one, it gets added to all devices on that same account. If you remove an app from one, it is removed from all devices on that account.

The solution is: Create a separate account for each device that needs its own catalog of apps.

Re: Different devices sharing the same channels menu.

I really dislike this.  It would be nice if there were a "remove this channel from this device only" function.  Having to manage multiple accounts is a hassle.
