Movie doesn't match the title on Roku Channel

I wanted to watch the Movie "Accepted" (2006) free on the Roku Channel but it plays a completely different movie. It's a bit disappointing. I've tried numerous times to contact Roku but nobody seems to understand what I am talking about.

Looks like Accepted (2021) is playing for free on both Tubi and Roku Channel.

I don't see Accepted (2006) streaming for free at this time.  Unfortunately, sometimes the Search Results show the wrong movie as being available for free when a similar named title is actually the one offered.

It's definitely on the search list but when it plays its the incorrect movie.

What I meant to say is that I don't see Accepted (2006) as being available to stream free anywhere else. (other than the Roku Channel).

In most cases (not all), if a movie is offered for free on the Roku Channel, then it is usually available for free on some of the other free channels/app like Pluto, Tubi, Plex, Filmrise, etc.  Generally helps to determine if the wrong movie poster/description is actually being listed. 

Since Tubi is offering Accepted (2021) for free currently, (and this is the movie being played when selecting the Roku Channel's offering of Accepted per the search results as well), this is likely what should be displaying under the Search Results for the Roku Channel.

Occasionally, the Roku Channel (and others) will link to a completely different movie (completely unrelated title, genre, content, etc), so that is some sort of CDN linking error.  That does not happen too much.  However, what happens more often is that the wrong movie with a similar title is incorrectly listed under the Search Results.
