Send "Push Notification" when new video uploaded on specific channel.

I want to send a push notification when a new video is updated on a specific channel.

Is there available "Push Notification" in Roku scene graph?

Re: Send "Push Notification" when new video uploaded on specific channel.

If you are developing the channel, the channel would need to be running/active on the client's roku.  Then you could track who is logged in and try to send out remote input commands to trigger an event on the device like refreshing the content list and screens. https://sdkdocs.roku.com/display/sdkdoc/External+Control+API  Your app could need to look for the custom events being sent to it from your server push.
If you are using Roku Global Search, last I heard was it updates the contents automatically every hour - so if you have a new item indexed in your search feed it will update on its own for that.

I am asking for "Push Notifications" is available in Roku just like Android or iPhone. So please provide me example related to this.

The only PUSH notifications Roku supports, without doing something like what I said, is for the Roku Billing system, and PUSH notifications for the Roku mobile app.

Yes, that is all there is, those are the only options.

This reference link says you can specify a URL endpoint to receive push notifications for transaction events such as purchases, cancellations, refunds, and credits.

This reference link says about Roku application for controlling Roku device and notification received on mobile.

But I want to send push notification on Roku TV like below screenshot.
