Roku Search says movie/show is free but it isn't

I've noticed this constantly happens with Sling. Roku search shows a movie as free on Sling and then I click to watch it and Sling launches and then pops up an error. If I go into Sling myself and search that movie, it's only available as pay-to-view.

Re: Roku Search says movie/show is free but it isn't

My guess would be that Sling is providing Roku with inaccurate information.  It's up to the providers to provide the information that appears in Roku's search.
