Re: Deep Linking

All deep linking methods use launch parameters. ECP is just one of many ways to deep link into a channel.

When the source is an ad on the device home screen, you'd work with our ad ops team to set up the launch parameters. When the source is Roku Search, your channel would be passed the playID that you provided in your search feed.

Thanks a bunch Chris.That was a great information.Actually is it roku channel store app search from roku device, which you mentioned above? If it is, how can i add the roku search into my roku device.Now there is a channel store option in my roku , where the channels are listed under certain genres.But i couldn't find any search options out there in my roku.I somewhere read that one-stop search only works with US based (North America) ip addresses.Is there such a constraint.Do you have any comments regarding these ?

Thanks.
