Re: Roku express doesn't show search bar

I'm in the United Kingdom and have just set up roku express. When I search anything it tells me that I need to specify my search. Even searching Netflix. My account is set up in Enland. Is this a fault?

Hi Tanner, 

Do you have any idea when you will market or sell Roku in the Netherlands? Or conversely, when the search functionality will be supported/activated in the Netherlands?

The search should be available everywhere. It's just geofencing that is blocking this simple functionality.

I don't believe Tanner works for Roku any longer. I haven't seen anything from him in many months. You'd be best to ask this of @RokuDanny-R

Hi all. 

I think I have found a solution to this. You can setup your Roku TV using a VPN (and set your location to Canada or US) on your internet network. That way, you will be able to access the full features of the Roku TV box....search function inclusive.

I hope this helps.
