Roku Stick - Favorite Channels

I have a Roku stick and noticed that I'm no longer able to add a channel as a favorite (clicking the station and then the "*"). I've searched around in settings but I don't see an option there. Can someone help? How do I edit (add/delete) favorite channels?

Verify that you are all the way to the left of the Roku Channel Live TV guide before pressing * button.  You need to be on the name of the channel, not on a program.

When you press the * button while on the channel name, you should have the options of Favorite this Channel, Hide this Channel, Manage Channels, Filter, and Close.

Re: Roku Stick - Favorite Channels

Thanks! But it looks like they have changed the way favorites are managed. The method you've described is how I did it in the past. I'm not sure when this changed but now I go to the channel press the * and it appears to open up the program on that channel. Let's just say it's "People's Court". I use the arrows to scroll to the right for the options for that program and then I see "favorite". I thought at first that this was making the program itself a favorite. I doesn't. By selecting "favorite" down there you can make a channel a favorite (or unfavorite if the channel if needed).

New way is kinda not obvious. But at least I figured it out.

Thanks!

Different Channels/apps have different ways of selecting "favorites".  The procedure you describes is similar to Pluto method.  Other Channels/apps also use that method.

I thought you were asking about Roku Channel Live TV.   If so, not seeing this behavior on my Roku devices.

Glad you figured it out.  Just remember that this is not universal throughout all the different channels/apps available on the Roku platform.
