Re: Previous channel button in TV Apps (Spectrum TV) (DirecTV Streaming)

I have found that this function depends on the App to work.  With Spectrum TV you need to use the << button.  With DirecTV you need to use the up arrow to view "Recently watched" then press OK to select the last thing you were watching.  When you do this again it goes back.  I like this as I sometimes switch between 3 stations and this gives me the option to quickly do that.

I will agree a "Previous" button to switch between "Channels" in Roku terms (Apps to everyone else) would be nice to have so I could switch between Prime and Hulu.  But that's not a huge issue with me.  Within TV Streaming though it is very important.

Re: Previous channel button in TV Apps (Spectrum TV) (DirecTV Streaming)

Thank you so much for sharing this information. I was going crazy trying to figure out way to get to last watched channel on Spectrum. << exactly what I needed to know.  It works!

Re: Previous channel working differently depending on which app is being used

The fact that I spend time researching how to go back to a previous channel tells me how badly designed this remote is. It should be intuitive...it is not. I mean previous channel button has been a thing with remotes since inception of remotes. YouTube TV / Fubo / Spectrum apps all behave differently with the Roku remote. There should be guidelines Roku sets with these app to make things universal. Since they don't, it's a horrible user experience. Thanks Roku with your lack of structure.
