Roku has announced a new software update for several of its video streaming devices that makes it easier to find the programs you want to watch. The software update is available for the Roku 2, Roku LT, and Roku HD players as well as the Streaming Stick. The update brings the devices to version 4.8 352x.
The update will roll out automatically over the coming week, but can be applied manually as well. Once the update is applied, it allows you to search for programs, actors, movies, and directors by name. The search function works across all of the services available on the Roku device.
That means you can search across Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, Hulu Plus, Crackle, VUDU and HBO GO at the same time. Once you find the program you’re looking for you can simply select a channel and the search listing will take you directly to your movie or show. Check out the video to see the new search function in action.Filed Under: Technology News
