ios roku app keyboard not working on fandango now app

I'm trying to use the keyboard from the  roku ios app  on the fandango now app. the remote section works fine and will let me open apps and control the remote like normal. when i click sign in on the fandango now app, it asks for email. when i click the keyboard and try to type it shows on the app, but not on the tv screen. its weird because it lets me type in my other apps like netflix, hulu, vudu, redbox. It would be a lot easier and faster than have to scroll   across to each individual character. So does anyone know why it's doing this and how to get it to type from the app?

Fandango is a Premium paid for Channel you should contact them.

Or just use the voice control.

Otherwise you can use your remote.

What do u mean it’s a premium paid for channel? With that channel u don’t need a paid subscription to use it.

You need to have some sort of Cable service which you pay for and then they pay Fandango.

Its not really Free as in Freedom. 

Anyway you'll only need to sign in once Why dont you just use the onscreen keyboard

and manipulate through it.

I think you’re talking about something different. With the fandango now app on roku, u can just go in and rent movies like in Vudu. And the regular fandango app is where u see current movies playing in theaters.

I have the same problem regardless of the channel I’m trying to use. I get to a text field and try to use the keyboard and it doesn’t show on the tv.
