"What to watch" missing on the left side of my home screen.

For some reason, "what to watch" option on the left of the home screen is not showing anymore? What's up? 

Model: 3941X - Roku express 4k+

Serial number: X016007LGSUP

Software version: 11.5.0 build 4312-CR

Last checked update: 3/22/23

Last updated 12/20/22

Please help. Does it need an update? I want that back! It would show all movies I saved on any app. Save list on Roku channel only shows for Roku app. What to watch would show movies and shows available for other apps like Tubi ect. 

When "My Feed" was changing to "What to watch, I had to email support and they sent an update to finally see my list in the "what to watch" last year. Now I can't even. See "what to watch" anymore. Help please. I sent support an email but only got a auto reply back that didn't say anyone would get back to me. Thank you.

Do you see it as an option to Show or Hide under the Home Screen in the Settings?

Settings/Home Screen/What to Watch [Show/Hide]

@Teresa751-

Have you tried restarting your Roku?

These things are just special purpose computers. Like their big brothers sometimes clearing things out by restarting them can correct problems. (Note that if yours is a Roku TV with "Fast start" enabled, turning it off and back on just puts it into and out of a standby state and does NOT give you a complete restart.)

Depending on your Roku model and Roku version number you'll find the System restart option under Settings > System > Power or if not there, under Settings > System

If a restart doesn't do it, or if you don't have sufficient control with the remote to navigate the Roku menus, you can also restart by pulling the power plug to the Roku for a few seconds then plugging it back in and wait for it to restart.

Thank you all for replying. It was a needed update. Thank you. It's back after an update. I had called Roku yesterday and spoke to someone. So obviously they figured out the issue. All set!

Oh and of course I tried everything you guys suggest. I'm not dumb. It was on Roku. Not me. Thanks again for fixing it to who ever did.
