The update will be available on all current generation Roku players and Roku has at the same time this week launched its new, upgraded Roku 2 player in the UK.
Roku Search will allow users to search for movies, TV shows, actors and directors, with the results to show the availability and price of this content across different channels.
At launch, Netflix, Snagfilms and Popcornflix will support this search functionality in the UK, with more channels expected t be added over time.
Roku’s new My Feed function lets users follow upcoming entertainment they want to watch, with an initial focus on ‘Movies Coming Soon’, which will give reminders on when titles are available to stream, on what channel and at what price.
Roku also said that a new version of the Roku Mobile App for Anrdroid and iOS and Android, with support for the new search and discovery features, is available now.
Roku first announced the new Roku Search and Roku Feed functionality, and started to roll it out in the US, last month.
The new Roku 2 player will be available in the UK starting this week from Argos, Curry’s and Amazon.
