What happened to the Search function?

Roku seems to have dropped the search function off the Home screen? Why?

Re: What happened to the Search function?

Hi @AbbiNormal

Thanks for the post.

Please be advised that the 'Search' functionality is not available if you are using a Roku device linked to a Roku account created in a region in which we do not directly market or sell Roku devices, including Roku TVs.

Could you tell us in what region are you located and the affected device serial number? It can be found in Settings > System > About.

We look forward to your response.

All the best,

Same question.  I am in Louisville, KY, USA and know you sell Roku devices here because I bought mine at the local Walmart.  So, what happened to the Search function?
