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

Generic remotes from now on. #Rocku

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.

Extra buttons *%!!&**

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.

Lots of people hate those buttons, but I doubt they're going away.  The first thing I do when I get a Roku is to open the remote and rip out those buttons.

I always wanted to rip those buttons out. I didn't pay for a roku remote to have a Disney Plus and a Vudu button. I want those buttons to be replaced with a Youtube and Spotify button.

Tried ripping out a button and left with a hole.  Can't do anything from the inside as it's only a cavity to hold batteries.  Am I doing it wrong ???
