How do I move channels on my Roku® streaming device?

Background

After you add a channel from the Roku Channel Store, a square tile with a channel icon is added to the grid of channel tiles that appears under Home on the main screen of your Roku® streaming player. Scroll down and you will find the newly installed channel at the bottom of the grid. If you prefer, you can move the channel to a different location.

Moving channels

  1. Press the Home button home button on Roku remote on your Roku remote.
  2. Press the OK button OK button on Roku remote or the right button on the directional pad to access your channel list. The directional pad is plus-shaped and is in the center of your Roku remote.
