I have to change batteries in remote every week

I got my first Roku TV for thanksgiving and every week I have to put in new batteries for my remote to work. Is this normal? Why would they make a product that does this?

Any help would be appreciated

Re: I have to change batteries in remote every week

I had the same problem. Solved it by using the short connection cable that comes with the streaming stick. Connect it to the stick then to a wall outlet using a USB adapter. I'm not very tech savvy but it's been working for over a year, changed the batteries once.
