1. Remove the app. 2. Settings -> System -> Power (If not applicable, skip to the next step!) -> System Restart. 3. Reinstall the app once the device is restarted.
I’m into videotapes and old electronics stuff, including extenders, converters and analog 4:3 TV sets (which are obsolete these days), and Miss Bianca is my favorite character in Disney’s The Rescuers (1977) and its sequel, The Rescuers Down Under (1990).

Rokus have a feature called the "Bandwidth saver" that kicks in when the Roku has received no user input in four hours. It asks if you are still watching, and if it receives no response, it exits the current stream and returns the Roku to its home page. At that point, further inactivity may trigger the screensaver if you have one enabled.
You can turn this feature on and off via Settings > Network > Bandwidth saver
Note that some individual channels may have a similar feature. I don't have Directv Stream, so I don't know if it has it's own similar "are you still watching" feature.
I would suggest, though, that when done viewing, you at least return that channel to its start page before turning off the tv. This is to prevent it from streaming unwatched content and putting an unnecessary strain on both your own internet connection, that channel's own servers, and everything in between.
