Roku search no longer valid - frustrating!

As of a week ago, Roku no longer provides accurate search results for shows and their channel options. I thought it might be a temporary glitch, but the option seems useless at this point. Honestly, it’s part of why we equipped our home with Roku tvs, and this is a serious disappointment…or a major programming screw up. Y’all need to address this quickly, or you will lose customers.

Re: Roku search no longer valid - frustrating!

This might be the result of changes made in Roku operating software version 11.5, which is slowly rolling out.

Settings > System > About will show you what Roku software version you're running.

I don't have 11.5 yet on any of my devices, but Roku's announcement of 11.5 touts "an all-new content discovery experience".
