Re: Wrong movie playing. Similar titles, wrong version

I just had the same problem.

I was watching through the Roku Channel.

 

This movie is what shows on the screen:  https://therokuchannel.roku.com/details/5c17d73e661858f3a026cc0b94685f68/jury-duty

But plays this movie: https://www.amazon.com/Great-American-Sex-Scandal/dp/B000F4RHV6, which also went by the name Jury Duty

Re: Wrong movie playing. Similar titles, wrong version

I've seen that happen with broadcast TV as well. The channel guide shows a title and metadata, but the actual show broadcast was something different with the same title. Unfortunately it happens on occasion. Someone just gets the info confused and posts the wrong metadata. Hopefully Roku can get the info back to the actual provider to clean it up for their channel.
