Roku takes over?

During setup, I'm asked about my interests. News, sports, etc. I click sports, news and something else. I thought I would then be presented with a list of channels from which I could choose. But no. I'm in the midst of an 85-channel download I don't want. I want 3-4 things that I wanted to choose. Is this just me, or something others have experienced?

Re: Roku takes over?

Is it a new Roku account or are you linking a new Roku to an existing account?  Once it finishes, ensure the email address that appears under Settings->System->About matches your Roku account email.
