Also, it's a private channel that is unsupported by Roku, so they won't offer any assistance with it.

As @atc98092 mentioned, private, non-certified channels are not supported. You will need to contact the channel developer directly for any further assistance or support with that type of channel. 

Thanks,

I wish someone would create a "private non certified channel" for Netflix, just a basic interface like the old one used to look like, so I can scroll in peace without preview trailers and watch videos without app pop up buttons asking to skip things and then shrinking the credits!

That's not possible with Netflix.

Netflix's HORRIBLE interface is the main reason I have canceled them and not resubscribed for over three years. But Netflix does not care because they have a huge number of sheep that will keep subscribing no matter how bad their interface gets.
The only way to get a good interface back on Netflix would be for a significant number of their subscribers to drop their subscription and give the horrible interface as a reason and that is not going to happen because people do not care that what they have should be better all they care about is sitting and watching what is fed to them.
Of course Roku could have an impact by refusing to certify the Netflix app until the interface is restored to reasonable functionality but that is also not going to happen as Roku does not see the need and, even if they do, they do not have the guts to get in Netflix's face.

Lighten up, Francis. Netflix is not out to get you.

When I saw Pornhub listed as a private channel, I was surprised that it would be allowed on Roku. It does not surprise me it may be gone. Roku wants a family friendly environment.

There's a number of "adult" private channels available. Roku will never allow them in their channel store, but as long as the feeds are legal (not pirated) there's no reason for Roku to shut them down. I'm glad they aren't listed in the channel store, not because I have children in my home, but it's not content I want to watch, and my grandkids do have a Roku in their home.

I did not know that there are a bunch of private adult channels for Roku. I am still surprised they are allowed on Roku. Maybe it is only pirated material that they get rid of.

NETFLIX supports older versions of Android with a separate app (side loaded from netflix's website, not playstore), FWIW.  I know that doesn't help with the Roku interface but just info.

I agree sometimes less is more.
