The Roku 3 has options for a Movie Store and a TV Store that allow you to purchase or rent videos from their M-G0 service. An update to the Roku 3 operating system added links to the Movie Store and the TV Store directly to the home screen.
If you do not use either of these options or if you have a child that you do not want to be able to use, then you might be looking for a way to remove them.
Fortunately, both of the store options can be hidden from the Home screen by following our short guide below.
