Re: Add channel to Guest Mode

dmaister, Guest mode works exactly the same on Roku TVs as it does on the plug-in Rokus.

Source: I've used a bunch of both the TVs and various others.

Re: Add channel to Guest Mode

This would be ideal. We just got a rental property and I just want guests to turn on the Roku and have live TV available without having to login or configure anything. 

ideally I would like a Guest Mode option whereby I can set a default app such as Spectrum TV that would automatically launch whenever a guest turned on the Roku. That’s how a cable box works today and many guests expect that feature.

Re: Add channel to Guest Mode

Absolutely agree with the request to add an Option to each app to preserve the account credentials without having to add it for each guest. 

Also would love to tag one app (Spectrum TV) that would auto start when the Roku is powered on.

Re: Feature Request: Configure Default Channel Selection for Guest Mode

People responding to your question seem to think it's about spectrum TV. It's not.

I want to add YouTube as a permanent selection in guest mode, because after December 9th 2021 users will not be able to add it themselves.

So, Roku, how do I make YouTube a permanent selection in guest mode?

Re: Feature Request: Configure Default Channel Selection for Guest Mode

It's really not about spectrum, I should be able to add whatever I want as a defualt guest channel such as Tubi which is completely free. My guess is that Roku is not willing to because they are not being paid by the service to be on the default list. I don't suspect there to be a technical issue but rather a business decision issue. Unfortunately, the loser are those like us that have ok invested in multiple Roku devices around the house. If the business decision cannot be solved, the only solution is either Roku thinks of it's customer first or lose customers when another option is available. Potentially, there is an balance in allowing 2 to 3 apps max to be on the default custom list or subsidize this issue with a one time payment to add customer lists.
