Special Interest Category Deleted from Channel Store

As of January 15, 2020, it appears that the "Special Interest" category in the Channel Store has been deleted.  Is everyone else seeing this?  Was there any warning from Roku indicating that the category would be terminated?  Am curious as to what the current Roku strategy is regarding channel store categories.  Will new categories be added to replace deleted ones?   

Thank you.

Re: Special Interest Category Deleted from Channel Store

I'm wondering the same thing. Sci Tech category is also gone. The store desperately needed to be pruned, but eliminating wholesale categories seems like the wrong way to go about it.
