After saying "OK Google play Watchmen", how do you voice command it to play the first option?

Roku just brings up the list of matches for "Watchmen". What is the google Assistant command for OK/Enter? "Play" does not work on that menu. Not even Play on the remote will launch it. You have to press OK on the remote. So what's the voice command for OK?

The advertized support for Google Assistant so if you can't even get it to play Watchmen via voice command (a basic functionality of the TV), that is False Advertising and Illegal. They need to make the Play button work from that menu or add an OK command to their Action on Google, or remove the advertizement from their box.

I use the Alexa Roku skill and you have to be specific about what you want to play and on what Roku app. I just tried a few commands, including Watchmen and what works is:

'Wake Word' ... Play WATCHMEN on HBO NOW and/or HBO GO.

This will start up the Roku app and begin to play the NEXT episode or RESUME an episode, depending on where you are in your viewing. Not sure if it would be exactly the same for Google.
