Spectrum TV Version 8 Build 1 - Can't find default (startup) channel setting

All 4 of my Roku boxes received Version 8 Build 1 yesterday and when the app opens now it goes to some awful news channel. In previous versions you could set the startup channel or at least it would open the app to the last channel you were watching. I've looked for settings but I only see settings for captioning. Are there other app settings I'm missing? It seems like they stripped out some settings in order to promote certain channels.
