remote opened roku and it added a channel

I  was watching a show on roku and paused it.  Later I went back and clicked the remote to  open 

the screen and continue watching the show but it started adding a channel and I wasn't quick enough

to stop it.

I deleted the channel but am worried that if that happens again that I or someone else might accidentally

purchase something.

How can I stop that from happening?

It wont.

Im pretty sure you have to jump through hoops to subscribe to a Premium channel.

If they charge you for something you can complain and it gets worked out.

You should always watch for movement on your credit cards.

Don't use the OK button on the remote to dismiss the screensaver; use any other button.  One or more of the Roku screensavers advertises channels and pressing OK will install the channel.  I don't believe that any of those channels cost anything to install.  Also, enable a PIN on your account at

Change the screensaver to the digital clock.

Re: opened roku and it added a channel

The problem only happens when I have paused a show.  While the channel installs, it disconnects the tv show I am watching. No one else is even in the house, so I know it's not being added by another user.
