I can't find the Channel Options Menu

Just got a Roku Express 4K+.  I was trying to set up "favorites" but all of the post on how to do it say to start with the CHannel Options Menu.  Anybody know how to find it?  Thanks.

Re: I can't find the Channel Options Menu

Hello! @PaulK,

A friendly welcome from the Roku Community!

We understand that you wanted to ask how to access the channel guide. We're pleased to assist. 

You can open the Live TV Channel Guide directly from the Live TV row in The Roku Channel, or you can access it any time you are watching a live streaming TV channel or an "over-the-air" channel (if you have an HDTV antenna connected to your Roku TV and the Live TV input has been set up). Press left on the directional pad to open the channel guide when watching a program. The directional pad is plus-shaped and is in the center of your Roku remote.

When the Live TV Channel Guide opens, the movie or show you watch will be highlighted in the grid. If you browse programs in the future, pressing when they are on your Roku remote returns you to the current day and time in the grid.

When you want to hide a channel, favorite a channel, or filter the list of channels in the guide, access the Channel options menu using the steps below.

  1. Open the Live TV Channel Guide
  2. Find the channel you wish to hide
  3. Move left until the channel name and logo are highlighted
  4. Press Star star button on Roku remote on your Roku remote to open the Channel options menu

Please keep us posted on what you find out; we will happily continue assisting you further. We look forward to hearing back from you.
