As discussed here, there are many who would like to have the ability to disable autoplay in the "Roku Channel" so that when the episode you are watching is finished, the next one won't start automatically. Many other channels on the Roku (like Netflix) have this option. I know some like this feature for binge watching, but many others don't so allowing you to choose your preference would be nice.
If Roku truly listened to their customers, this option would have been implemented many years ago. Unfortunately the 'powers that be' at Roku are like all other corporations in the world, the only thing they care about is their 'bottom line' and profit margin. As long as Autoplay can help generate more advertising dollars this option to turnoff Autoplay will never be made available.
I've been watching the Roku channel on my desktop at night and need to turn Auto Play off. It stays on playing all night. When I watch Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, etc. on my Roku, it doesn't play forever, though. And of course YouTube and other online video sites offer the same option to have it on or off. But I don't see it on the Roku. Where is it? If it doesn't exist, when will you fix that and add it? Thanks!
