Unless I have missed it, I think it would be great to have the ability to Browse (not just search specific titles) from the Roku platform by genre for movies/tv across all the platforms (channels) I currently have. Also, perhaps search by FREE and it could search Nflx/hulu/prime etc..places you have paid for subscription. I find searching nflx/hulu/amazon etc for something to watch on a saturday night to be quite time consuming
I just spent over an hour trying to find an way to search by genre. The closest to a possible solution I found is to "just type the genre in the search"... but at least for "sciFi" or "Science Fiction" that only brings up movies and shows with the words "science fiction" in it. No genre.
I am making a wild guess that because Roku offers video from multiple platforms, there is no way to do it, because Roku would need to know how to search each of those sources.
I am glad I bought my Roku at a thrift store for $5. At least I didn't waste too much money.
