Where to get a programmable remote for custom shortcut buttons

On my standard roku remote, I only use the Netflix shortcut button. I'm sure they, sling, hulu and NOW all paid good money to be there.

However I also use a Prime and YouTube heavily and almost exclusively on my Roku.

Is there a brand that makes a quality remote with programmable shortcuts?

Re: Where to get a programmable remote for custom shortcut buttons

There are but it won't be labelled with the name, just have the command and so you would have to remember where they are. 

If you don't mind using a IR remote you could get Inteset 422-3 or One-For-All urc-7880 Universal remotes, with these remote and a boat load of Advanced codes(EFC), you code map individually all kinds of channels, of course you'll have to remember what and where they are on the remote. This are some of the codes available:

Google play 00022

Rdio 00026

Youtube 00032

Feature Free 00043

Deezer 00054

Ch Store 00224

Prime Video 00082

TED 00084

PS VUE 00085

Spotify 00086

Pandora 00088

Red Bull 00090

CBS AA 00128

Yupp Tv 00130

Vudu 00138

Showtime 00149

Hulu 00151

Hbo Now 00153

WWW network 00180

Crackle 00181

The CW 00182

Happy Kids Tv 00184

Starz 00222

Slingtv 00229

Att TV 00247

Roku Ch 00118

Fandango now 00133

Netflix 00148

ESPN 00187

Disney + 00070

Apple tv 00073

To map these to a key on Inteset remote, first you use setup code 03061, and:
1. device key
2. press and hold SET for two blinks, release
3. enter 9 9 4
4. tap SET for one blink
5. enter 5 digit code
6. pick a key

One-For-All makes the urc-7935 Streamer remote, it has four labelled keys, there are two versions of these remote, one has an A for amazon, the other replaces the A with Vudu key. In addition it has netflix, hulu, and red arrow for You Tube. P1010420 (800x600).jpg

 

Its a learning remote too.

I'm guessing that this means that the original Roku remotes can't be reprogramed to change the Sling, hulu or Now buttons?
