As with most things on Roku... it's probably not possible without logging in and logging out through the app/channel interface.

Have you ever stopped to think the long-term GOP immigration policy might be to make the United States of America a less desirable place to live than Mexico?

I am looking for the answer too. I cannot imagine fandangonow has been designed so painful.

My information/comments apply to the Roku 3, Roku 2 XS, Roku SE [FOR SURE] where a Roku update over a year ago embedded FandangoNow, when it was still M-GO, into the Roku Devices Operating System (OS).

No, again at least not on the older devices I listed above. ORIGINALLY adding the M-go channel on the Roku 2 XS was an option. However, when they pushed the OS update the Roku 2 XS and Roku 3, Roku SE and likely other versions had M-Go (no FandangoNow forcibly embedded in the menu & OS).
The Channel CAN NOT be removed or deactivate.
There is a phantom Deactivation option in your FandangoNow account but clicking it does nothing.
The only way to remove an account is to do a Factory Reset. - And that is really stupid.
Since I link it to my ROKU page most of my channels redownload for me, but it takes a good bit of time for that and then going around and logging into and relinking all the channels to accounts. HAD no one at ROKU or M-GO considered this? EEK! Mad

Unfortunately, not in the case of FandangoNOW Nono It's just not possible at least on the Roku 3, Roku 2 XS, Roku SE... and any other model that has that embedded FandangoNOW channel shoe horned into the OS without a choice.

Unfortunately it has, they must be under some kind of advertising contract with FandangoNOW (formerly M-GO) but I sure hope that ends because a factory reset is a RIDICULOUS length to have to go to just to remove an account --- linked to a channel.



What I am seeking is information on the newer & newest line of Roku Products.
SD member RUSum1 on a recent thread said his (2016) Roku Streaming stick does NOT have FandangoNOW embedded in the menu and does NOT have the channel pre-installed.
However, he is unwilling to TEST out adding the channel for fear that he can't remove it later. Which is understandable, but I would very much like to know if the Roku 4, Roku Stick (2016 Newst Model), Roku Premiere, Roku Premiere +, and Roku Ultra can add and REMOVE the channel --> and if the channel can be removed IF that deactivates an account ==> OR if on those newer than Roku 3 devices have a working deactivation option in the device list on FandangoNow accounts.
