I remember the days when we had to watch whatever was on TV with cable. Now, there are so many different options for watching my favorite shows and movies that sometimes it can be hard to choose! One of these is streaming services like Netflix or Hulu- but the most famous and growing among them is Roku TV.
If someone were looking at this passage, they would know what technology has done over time and how much more complicated entertainment systems have become today than 10 years ago (due to new technologies). They may also want a second opinion about their choices because we now live in such an age where media consumption seems limitless; if not overwhelmed then simply confused as well as unready for picking and choosing, with too many options one can choose.
Let’s have a look at channel subscription of Roku TV:
Roku users should be aware of the harmful effects that deleting channels from their account can have. When a user deletes an undesired channel, they may think it’s gone forever but in reality, subscriptions will still go through and continue to bill them every month until unsubscribed!
When you delete channels on your Roku device or subscription list many people forget about those pesky monthly charges for services attached to deleted accounts. Make sure not just to add new ones but also remove old ones too if desired so there are no surprises when looking at your bank statement next time around!
So, you have your Roku account and setup, you have installed many of the channels on your TV or are about to install some. One thing to watch for is that you must select “keep my payment information on file” and provide credit card numbers when signing up with the services. Otherwise, they will not be able to charge your account each month!. That leads us to say that we must have an active subscription in order for our Roku channels to work. You can remove channels in the following ways:
Through channel Lineup:
If you use this method, you will see the list of channels installed on your Roku. You can select “remove channel” to remove particular one. It will remove both from main menu and home screen.
Through My account:
This is a semi-permanent way to remove a channel. If you delete an app from my account, it will be removed from the top of your Home screen and from the main menu but when next time you restart Roku box- this channel would appear again in your line up. It will remove the channel from main menu and home screen but not from your Roku account.
Through manage subscriptions in my account:
The only way to make sure a channel is removed for good is to remove it through my account. It requires you to enter email address and password of your Roku account then click “remove“. There are also some charges for doing this method (I mean, there must be credit card information for them to be able to charge you!) A small fee of $1.99 will be charged if you use this method or free if you do it online- otherwise they would not know whom they should charge!
With all these different removing methods available, choose one that works best for you! Keep in mind that I have only listed the most common ways to remove channels from Roku. There is also a third way- removing a channel through my account on Roku website:
Use the Roku app: You can do this by going to http://my.roku.com/account and logging into your account.
Find the channel you want to remove, then click on 3 dots next to it >>>> choose “delete”
Use Roku website:
You can also do this with any web browser by finding my account section of your account (removing a channel from web is free!) and clicking link to channels. Find the channel you want to remove, then click on “remove channel” next to it.
How To Remove Subscriptions From Roku: If you do not want the service anymore just go through manage subscriptions option in my account section of your account and follow instructions online or call their customer care number provided. If you have subscribed through your Roku device- then pay attention: if you delete app from the top of home screen- this channel would appear again in your line up but when next time you restart Roku box- this channel would appear again in your line up!

Where do I find an app’s store page?
You can find a list of our channels under ‘Browse Channels’, which can be found under Manage Account, Channel Management. If you have the channel installed, but don’t see it in your account’s Channel management page, then you may need to contact Roku support.
I deleted a channel and now I regret it; can I get it back?
Yes! Once you delete a channel from your Roku player, it is no longer available for viewing. However, if you did not update your list of channels on your Roku player before deleting the app from my account or for another reason do not have that channel in your list at all- then keep reading 🙂 You can go through manage subscriptions option in my account section of your account and follow instructions online or call their customer care number provided.
