Once you’ve connected it to Wi-Fi, your Roku TV will automatically remember your Wi-Fi details and connect in the future. If you want to disconnect it from your wireless network, you can make it forget your Wi-Fi details.

This process is simple, but the option is a bit hidden. To find it, press the “Home” button on your Roku remote to go to the home screen. Navigate to “Settings” on the left side of the home screen and press the “OK” button to open the Roku TV settings.

On the Settings screen, go to System> Advanced system settings> Reset network connection.

Select the “Reestablish connection” option and press the “OK” button on your remote control. Your Roku will restart and take a few moments to forget your Wi-Fi network details.

Please select "Reestablish connection" on the setup screen.

Now the Roku smart TV won’t be able to track what you watch.

If you ever want to reconnect to your Wi-Fi network in the future, you can re-enter your Wi-Fi details on the Roku TV’s settings screen.

Of course, network connected functions will not work when you are disconnected from the network. For example, you will not be able to use applications like YouTube or features like Apple AirPlay that are built into your TV. However, if you use a separate streaming box, that streaming box will work fine as long as it is connected to the internet.
