* To remove BlinkFeed from your homescreens simple long press on a blank spot on the home screen (same way to add a widget)

* Click the square with a pen icon on the top right hand corner

* Scroll to the far left (so that the blickfeed page is highlighted)

* Click Remove

To remove Blinkfeed go to settings>personlize>homescreen. You can turn it off there.

Edit:

Opps, I guess that doesn't work. I had seen it before and just looking at it one would assume that turns it off. I had never tried it though. Decided I should see. Doesn't seem to though. Pressing on it just returns you to the homescreen and Blinkfeed is still there. Rebooting didn't help either. Egg on my face I guess.

You need to do as runandhide05 said but when the menu pops up, select manage homescreens. Then slide things so you can see the Blinkfeed page. Then click the remove button at the bottom.

I have 'removed' blinkfeed from my homescreen and am running the barebones rom. I just noticed today, while in airplane mode at work, that in my power usage settings HTC Blinkfeed has used 10%. The hell? There has to be something you can do to turn that crap off?

Blinkfeed is the name of the default launcher, so unless you're running a different launcher then it will always show up as using battery.

Yes, I was just coming back to say this. I went into TB and froze it and had no launcher.

Ah. Okay. Now I know. Thanks for this.

Is there anyway to customize it?

I don't use the Blinkfeed launcher, I use Nova Prime. I'll have to let someone else answer what customizations are in the Blinkfeed launcher.

What's the difference in this than simply selecting "Manage Home Screen Pages" that pops up on long-press on the home screen? Simply hit that, scroll to the Blinkfeed page, and hit remove.
