How to Move Channels on Roku Streaming Device

Roku is a media streaming device that offers thousands of streaming channels. You can install the Roku apps (channels) from the Roku Channel Store. And after installation, the app will be listed under your Roku channel list.

However, after installing some channels, you might find it hard to navigate through the list every time you want to find an app. Also, if there are some channels that you frequently stream, scrolling through all the less-used channels every time is a headache!

Luckily, there is a solution to this issue. You can now move channels on Roku streaming devices and arrange them alphabetically or as per your requirement.


Well, this article shows you the detailed steps to move Roku channels. So, without any further ado, let’s begin!
