A kind person recently gifted me the 2019 Roku Express and all is running smoothly. I since learned of the mobile app and installed it on my Samsung tablet. Very cool! When I start it the home location is The Roku Channel and I am able to watch/stream the various content. One does not require the Roku hardware for this app to function. However, I assume one needs to register/create an account nonetheless.
My question: At the bottom of the home page is the 'My Channels' icon. When I clik on it the app displays a full window of the remote control. I was expecting a display showing the 'My Channel' icons (Netflix, Prime Video, Hulu, etc.). Is there a step or setup process I need to do to correct this issue?
Danny - thanks for the reply. I am not using the mobile app with a Roku device or a Roku tv so I am not sure you understand my issue. As per the op I am using my tablet.
I have not visited this topic until I was recently emailed that there was a reply to my post. I then started up the app and noticed that something has changed. When I go to My Channels the screen no longer changes to a display of the remote control. It now displays the channels (as I was expecting). However, selecting a channel to watch changes the display to a remote control image. I was expecting the selected channel to run. So, one step forward ...
Please be aware that the Roku mobile app will only allow you to watch The Roku Channel on your device (tablet or phone). When you are in the My Channels screen and select a channel, the mobile app is telling the connected Roku device to go to that channel, and the app will then change to the remote screen allowing you to control the channel playing on your Roku device.
