Switching Channel from SDK to Direct Publisher

Hello,

I posted this on the Direct Publisher forum as well.  Hope that is ok.

We have an existing Roku Channel that was created using the SDK.  We would like to replace it with a Direct Publisher-based Channel.  Same URL, same placement in the channel store, and still using existing analytics.  For folks already subscribed to the existing channel, when the new RDP channel is launched, it replaces the previous content/layout.

I don't see how I make that switch.

Is it possible?  If so, how do I do so?

It can't be done natively, in otherwords, there isn't an established method in the dashboard to achieve it. None that I'm aware of. However I would try reaching out to Roku in some way (mod: Roku Shawn or Joel or whoever the current one is). Or if you have any contacts or past emails you can reach out to.

Possibly it can be done on their back end, I'm not really sure either way of how much of a technical workaround it would be for them, (possibly it just can't) but you should get in touch & see if they can assist you in this. Makes sense what your asking, it's just the technical/backend of if they can do it. Hopefully they foresaw things like this when implementing the DP infrastructure & anticipated conversions like this.

Appreciate the suggestion. Thank you.
