Search tab missing.

Streaming stick +

 On the home page I do not have the "search" tab so I am unable to search for EG PlutoTv etc.

 Is there any way to enable the search function, as Im just stuck with the channels pushed onto my Roku..

   Thanks citizens..

Re: Search tab missing.

From what I believe I've heard from the Roku moderators here, the Search function is not available in all countries. Are you in the US, or another location?

In another location,  so it seems that roku have a geoblock on their search engine..!   Yet, loaded already is BBC iplayer from the UK which wont work outside the UK anyway..  seems strange.

Re: Search tab missing.

It is not permissible to discuss VPN usage on the forum. No, there is no workaround from geographical restrictions.
