ROKU Remote buttons

Let me begin by saying that I understand the marketing and the agreements and the cash that surround the specific buttons for specific product and services such as Netflix on the ROKU remotes.

HOWEVER, on a remote with such limited functionality to begin with, PLEASE start to negotiate terms allowing those buttons to be re-assigned.  Something like 6 months after the date of initial activation or whatever.

I can't tell you the number of times I've dropped my remote and or the dog has jumped on the couch and BOOM, the show I'm watching is gone and I'm at a screen to install an app I don't want.  Heck, I'd probably be willing to pay $5-$10 to have the privilege of remapping these buttons for ALL devices on my account.

PLEASE do something, I know this has been asked before.

Brought to you from someplace in Texas!

Hi,

Thanks for the feedback about your remote buttons. I'll pass it along to our team.

If you're looking for more ways to launch specific channels on your device, check out the free Roku mobile app here: https://support.roku.com/article/115003211087-how-do-i-manage-channels-using-the-roku-mobile-app-[/u...

Choose ROKU Remote buttons?

I like those quick-select buttons, but which buttons you get (Netflix, HBO, Hulu, etc.) seems to be random. Is there a way to pre-select which buttons I'm going to get with my remote before I buy a Roku Ultra or other device?

Re: Choose ROKU Remote buttons?

Sorry, but you can't, probably only way for you know at least one of the keys is by buying it at Walmart, where Roku's sold at Walmart have a Vudu key.
