TV, VCR, & DVD players remotes don't usually have buttons to other companies services most media remotes have buttons that have buttons you CAN program to use your other devices like TVs, VCR/DVDs n etc not misc other companies paid devices that you get push to by a finger press mishap... I do as another poster suggested remove the offensive buttons totally!!!
So Roku charges it's paying customers for the advertising billboard (the Remote). Then charges the channels for the preset remote buttons now owned by it's customers. Then those advertisers further charge those very same Rocku customers for more services. Don't you just love capitalism. LMAO
Would be nice to have a hack. It’s a big assumption that most users would want to use ESPN, as one of the most prominent buttons on a minimalist remote. I don’t give a **bleep** about sports, and cheapens the Roku experience for me.
Does anyone else HATE all the extra buttons to premium channels? We often accidently hit one of those - usually one we DON'T want - and it will download that channel!
I'd like a plain ol' remote that just does that: choose the channels I want, turn up/down the volume, mute, and off. That's it - no more than that. And please don't tell me to use my smartphone app. I want to use my phone as a phone - not a as a remote.
