Hi,

Thanks for the inquiry.

You can remove the a channel from the Roku home screen by navigating to the channel tile, pressing the * key on your remote and choosing 'Remove channel'. Then restart your device from Settings>System>System restart. Once your player starts up again, add the channel back once more. 

Thanks,
Danny

Re: Uninstall and reinstall

I notice it's possible to install a channel from the website, is it possible to uninstall a channel from the website? if so, how is it done. If not, why not?

Nope.  It's been asked for many times and no one knows why it hasn't been made possible.

Yes - though the Remove option may not be there if you have subscribed to the channel through Roku Pay.
