Searching all streaming channels

Jump to solution

Good day everyone,

 I just purchased a Roku device, and I was wondering how to search all the streaming services I am connected to. I like Star Trek and when I use the voice search it only brings up Paramount +. I am not subscribed to Paramount + so it tells me I will be charged for watching any episode. The search does not show that Star Trek is available for free on Pluto TV. I found it by going through Pluto TV's channel list. My question is how I make my voice search find all instances of a show from voice search. Is there a setting that needs to be changed? Or do I need to search each streaming service separatly? Thanks for any answers someone may have.

The Search function on the Roku home screen menu is available in the following countries:

In English:
  Canada
  Ireland
  United Kingdom
  United States

In Spanish:
  Mexico
  United States

Where it is available, search works for those streaming services that submit information about their programming to Roku. Accuracy and maintenance of the data is the responsibility of the channel providers. Roku lists services providing this information on this page: https://support.roku.com/article/235044948 -- Pluto is not on the list.
