Too far! Paws advertising on Home Screen

Long time Roku user here, also an investor in the company (full disclosure).

I’m really disappointed in the latest Roku Home Screen theme, “Paws”.  The Olympics screen took over the theme in an intense manner, but the latest Paws theme is the wrong move.  It changes the screen, advertises at me, for something completely uninteresting to me.  It’s also “girly”.  Nothing wrong with that but I’m a single guy.

I’m fine with uniform and generic themes, but not highly niche ones - especially those which do not pertain to me.

Couldn't find a Contact Us section for complaints, so writing here.

FYI, these "niche" movie/show/service wallpaper/theme advertisements have been going on for a couple years now - they aren't new.

This is the first time you noticed?

As @DBDukes indicated, you should turn off seasonal themes (though that wont eliminate all of them)

Re: Too far! Paws advertising on Home Screen

Thanks, I know how to turn off seasonal themes.  What I’m trying to say is the advert itself is off putting.  Again, not looking for help, just hoping Roku would notice since they have no way to provide user feedback.

Thanks, I did review that section - there is no general contact.  It’s all for questions.  I’ll just mark this completed as I don’t think it will be gaining any attention from Roku’s team here.

Thanks again.
