Roku Originals in the App

Is there any way to block Roku Originals in the app? My son uses the app as a remote, but we don't want him having access to TVMA content.

Re: Roku Originals in the App

If you log into your account at you can create or reset a PIN value. You can then choose when the PIN is to be required, such as before it will allow any subscription or purchase to be made on your account. 

You can also set the program ratings which require entering the pin for access.  The verbage there indicates this only works for content on The Roku Channel.  Other  non-Roku channels may have their own parental control settings.

It doesn't look like that page has been updated since Roku Originals were introduced, so I don't know if the parental controls via Roku PIN extend to cover Roku Originals as well.  @RokuDanny-R  @RokuKariza-D  -- can you clarify?
