Help & troubleshooting for channels on your Roku device, including adding/removing channels, logging in to, authenticating, or activating a channel, channel-specific playback issues, assistance contacting channel publishers to report issues, and adjusting channel-specific settings.
I can’t find a way to stop auto play on the ROKU Channel. My provider caps the amount of data that we are allowed and overage charges are substantial. Please advise as to how to turn off auto play. If there is no option - I will delete the channel
Thanks for the note here. Roku devices currently offer an option in Settings>Network called Bandwidth Saver, which will limit automatic playback after a number of hours. We don't currently have a specific feature to instantly limit autoplay from one episode to another, but you can hit the back button to exit playback of any current title once it completes.
I will be sure to pass your request along to our team to share your interest in adding this feature though.
I am also interested in a shut-off for AutoPlay. I think this is a highly-desired feature for many who like to watch Roku as they fall asleep, but want to conserve bandwidth and don't want it to play all night - or even worse - have to wake up to turn it off (thereby defeating the purpose).
Currently, we do not have a feature that may allow the functionality you're looking for but thanks for the suggestion! Feel free to visit our blog at blog.roku.com for any future announcements or updates.
