“Channels” are the apps that make up the bulk of your Roku experience. There are some that come pre-installed and you can also install your own from the Channel Store. Eventually you may want to remove some.
There are two places where you can uninstall channels and games: directly from the home screen and in the Channel Store. The home screen is the easiest method, but we’ll show you both.

How to remove Roku channels from the home screen
First, use your remote to highlight the channel on the home screen that you want to remove. Click the options button on the remote. It looks like an asterisk.
A menu with various options will appear. Select “Delete channel”.
The next screen will ask you to confirm by selecting “Delete”.
Once the deletion process is complete, the channel will no longer appear on the home screen!
How to Delete Roku Channels with the Channel Store
You can also remove channels from their listing page on the Channel Store. First, navigate to “Streaming Channels” from the sidebar of the home screen.
In the Channel Store, navigate to “Search Channels” and enter the name of the channel you want to remove.
On the channel listing page, select “Remove Channel” and confirm your choice in the pop-up window.
That is all! The channel will be removed from your device and home screen. Both ways are effective, but the home screen method is much faster. Channels are one of the main things that make Roku devices great, so make sure you keep them clean and tidy.
