Local ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC stations are getting a new and improved Roku Channel


Gray Television is testing a new version of the Roku app for local ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC stations. While the app updates automatically, Roku users may notice that it’s missing from their streaming channel collections, but stay tuned. By default, the app has been moved to the bottom of the Roku home screen.

Fortunately, there is a simple — and quick — way to remedy this realignment. First, go to the home screen and scroll to the end of the Roku app selections to find the WBAY icon. Highlight your local TV station’s Roku channel, but instead of clicking OK, select the * button on your remote. The “Move Channel” option will appear, allowing you to move the channel to where you want it.

You can use the steps above to rearrange each tile on the Roku home screen, although WBAY recommends moving its app to the top for easier access.

The new and improved WBAY app, version 2.0, will make it easier than ever to catch up on the latest live newscast, 24/7 First Alert Weather, and stream all your breaking news. Other new features include access to more video content from the WBAY archives and an override cap on the number of videos viewed.

according to press release By WBAY, “You’ll find the entire Small Town series with Jeff Alexander, plus a month’s worth of glamorous 3 Minutes by Brad Spakowitz and Action 2 News This Morning Birthday Club.”

WBAY is still testing the new 2.0 version of its app, so not everyone has access to it yet. Those in the trial run group will see different backgrounds and text colors. The features promoted below the live broadcast will also change frequently.

Until the test is complete, only selected users will be able to see these changes. After WBAY works through all the upgrades and remedy any potential glitches, version 2.0 will be available on Roku to 100 other different Gray Media stations, as well as eventually launching on FireTV and AppleTV.
