Why does ROKU have to change Networks a show airs on. 1 week a show is on Paramount
These shows began airing on 1 Network like Paramount + then the next week it airs on HULU. Why do you continue to change shows around where they air it makes no sense of us trying to find a show that last week aired on 1 Network & this week it is moved to another Network?
The different content is licensed and made available on different streaming Channels/apps for varying amounts of time. (for the most part, monthly is the normal minimum, but never seems to be disclosed).
However, it does seem some content is increasingly being promoted with free episodes to steer users to some subscription services. (free limited-time only viewing)
If you find a particular show or movie is no longer available, you can either use the "Search" feature on your Home Screen or use the online "Whats On" feature on the Roku Website under "What to Watch". This has actually been giving better search results as of late compared to the device's Search feature.

@JAGUARDOG Most of those are nationally aired shows that have weekly releases on major networks such as NBC, CBS, ABC and Fox. Usually after 24 - 48 hours after airing live on tv those shows are released for on demand. Who offers them for on demand release varies on who has the streaming rights. Such as Yellowstone. It airs live on Sundays on Paramount (not Paramount+). The current season is 4. But if you want to watch season 3 you need Peacock. It has nothing to do with Roku. Different networks release different shows and seasons to certain companies. Now are you talking about the new seasons or the past? It all depends on who bought the streaming rights. The Walking Dead is owned by AMC. Season 11 airs live on AMC. But Netflix owns the rights to season 1-9 cause they bought it from AMC
