Re: Feature request: Block ads inappropriate for children

Block ads inappropriate for children and I


@customer12345 wrote:

Parental controls do nothing to block ads with sexual or violent content. These ads are being shown during the day, most often for content on the Roku channel. So don't tell me you can't do anything about it. It's your own channel you are advertising. Give parents the ability to block these ads. Comments about this topic have been in the forums for at least two years. Your software team could add this feature in about a day. Get it done.


 

Re: Feature request: Block ads inappropriate for children

My son's elementary school uses Roku TVs for their lobby and I walked in to find an ad for the movie "Showgirls" as the first thing someone would see as you walk in. Roku could very easily have a "Block mature ads on the Home Screen" option under the Settings.

That is just unacceptable.  Roku needs to make sure the main screen is rated G.  Adult oriented themes should be available only behind a password portal.  Just because someone decided to hyper-sexualize the entire month of June does not mean we all want to participate or have our kids indoctrinated.  

Re: Feature request: Block ads inappropriate for children

Agree. Roku does this deliberately. Money over morality. Thinking about canceling as my daughter is old enough that I need to filter her input for her long term well-being.

I don't try and force my beliefs on others. My Bible says homosexuality is wrong, Christianity is 2000 yes old and is my right to believe in. The media pushes adultery, fornication and homosexuality, look how sad and miserable the world is. How would you like me to force you to watch clean family friendly shows. Instead you try to pervert the minds of children, they don't need to see serial content, let them be children.

Yes, we used to have something called standards. The leftists have done a great job of eliminating them and calling anyone who disagrees a homophobe. And the more society decays, the more they double down and shove even more filth in our faces.

I'm planning to email my AG here in Tennessee, Roku doesn't seem to care whatsoever if kids see sexually inappropriate or violent images but perhaps a state AG investigation will make a bigger impact. 

Re: Feature request: Block ads inappropriate for children

Wow, yes I even emailed Roku a complaint about this as well. Very inappropriate.

Re: Feature request: Block ads inappropriate for children

Right, I just don't understand why they don't incorporate a true parental filter, that would solve any of these issues. Also I did successfully file with my AG here in Tennessee and am still waiting on Rokus response.
