Roku is a media player that allows you to add channels and stream content on your Roku TV. You can easily add channels by visiting the channels store.
However, for any reason, if you want to get rid of a channel on Roku, you can effortlessly remove it from your device.
The process to delete channels on Roku is pretty simple, but here’s the catch. If you are looking to delete a paid channel (subscription-based channel), you’ll also need to cancel your subscription. Otherwise, even though you are not using the channel, your card will be billed.
Moreover, keep in mind that the channel will be deleted from all other Roku streaming devices connected to the same account when you remove it from one Roku device.
Moving onto the process of deleting a channel on Roku, we will share four different methods to remove any channel on Roku, in this guide. So, if one doesn’t work for you, you can go for the alternative one!
