Wrong movie listed on search

Searched for “The Secret Garden”, selected the 1993 version.. first choice that pops up free is on a channel called “Local Now”. It was the 2020 version. The other selections for the same movie on other channels are correct, but not free. 😞

Re: Wrong movie listed on search

This happens all the time with movies and shows with identical titles. Different services submit databases of shows, and if some data is missing, Roku's database may make some assumptions. Or the original database sent in may be bad.

Recently, there is "The Little Prince" on The Roku Channel that is actually some bizarre AI-generated thing. It originally had some other artwork from another version, but now seems to have been updated to show it is some form of documentary.
