I can find no such channel called CuriousityStream. I did a web search and I do see it as a streaming service. It must be listed differently within the Channel store. 

You will need to contact CuriousityStream to find out if their channel has a search function. Roku themselves did not develop the channel. Some Roku devices have a search function, but for it to work within 3rd party channels they have to explicitly allow Roku Search to access their content. Many channels do not permit it.

Here is the response from CuriosityStream:


You are using the Roku Channel add on which does not have a search function regretfully. The Roku channel add on is separate from traditional subscriptions and handled by Roku only.

The general Roku search feature on the left side below Home seems to work to search programs on CuriosityStream.
