just set up....channels added?

Jump to solution

Just set up my Roku, asked me a bunch of questions, told it I had DISH.  Did not press on any ADD buttons. It set up and downloaded about 35 channels.  I did not order any but the FREE ones.  Were these the free ones?   If not an they were paid for, how can I delete them ?

Thanks,
TImK

When you tell it what provider you have it just downloads a bunch of relevant/suggested channels.  Those channels are generally free to download, but may require some kind of authentication or subscription to watch anything.  You can remove a channel by highlighting it on the Home Screen and then press * on your remote.  There should be an option to "Remove channel".

I'd suggest adding a PIN to your account so you don't inadvertently purchase something without realizing it:   https://my.roku.com/account/pin
