It was reported about a month ago that roku gets paid a $1 for each key, from each app per number remotes made. So $4 remote helps keep the prices down. The new firestick remotes will have those keys as well.
It would be nice for older people to have a few more personalized buttons. I am constantly having to show older ones how to use their remotes to switch between the channels that they use. Typically around 5 or 6 channels. Is there a place to give suggestions for future roku devices?
Well the one I bought did not. That's why I'm asking if I can buy a new remote instead of an entire system. I'll never buy a new system for this reason, but maybe a new remote. I'll definitely look more closely next time before purchasing a tech product with such little adaptability. Makes me respect Roku a bit less and will be seeking other options in the future. **bleep** you Roku for trying to influence my programming habits.
