This is kind of possible. It is the way Amazon handles favorites on this device that is a PITA.
For your Favorites only favorite your absolute favorite channels. For me, that is 100% OTA and mostly the networks “.1” channel.
In the area where you can remove channels, blast away (hide) at the stuff you will never watch. For me, that would be duplicates (I get two metro areas) and silly .2-.4 stations of no use to me like ridiculous 1950s-1970s shows, PBS kids channels, shopping, bible thumpers, etc. I do not speak Spanish but I kept them because: free soccer…
This kind of works but, again, because of Amazon's insane interface for thee channel guide, you have to be sure you are looking at the Favorites section. Inexplicably, if you are on a channel and pop back to the guide, instead of back to your Favorites, it pops back to the full channel selection (except the ones you hide).
Don't get me started on the iOS Recast app and Echo Show 5. Selecting a station on the Show from Recast is a total nightmare! A horizontal scroll of all the OTA stations, including the ones you removed. Insanity to make a customer scroll through 54 stations, in my case. 75% of which, I do not watch in the kitchen or anywhere.
