The menu and navigation system on the Roku 3 is very easy to use, and you have the ability to install many new channels directly from the device. But it gets more difficult to maneuver through your channels when there are more of them, and there is a strong likelihood that you will not want to keep every channel that you have installed. Luckily you can delete a channel on the Roku 3, although it might not be immediately obvious how to do so.
