How to follow your favorite shows using My Feed

Background

My Feed does the searching for you to keep you updated on your favorite entertainment. Follow movies, TV shows, actors, and directors and get automatic updates when content you are interested in is ready to stream or available at a lower price.

You can access My Feed from the main menu on your Roku® home screen. Updates within My Feed come from more than 100 participating Roku Search partners. Click here for a list of channels included in Roku Search.

Follow your favorite entertainment

Using Roku Search, find the title, actor or director you want to follow across top channels. From the search results screen, highlight the selection you want and press right on your remote’s directional pad to enter the search details screen. Locate the option "Follow this on Roku" and press OK on your remote. You are now following this item and will begin receiving automatic updates as new content or viewing options become available.

Get updates in My Feed

From the home screen, navigate down to the menu option My Feed. Press right on your remote’s directional pad to enter the My Feed experience. My Feed will notify you when:

  • A movie or TV series you follow becomes available on the Roku platform for the first time, or is now available to stream for free or at a lower price
  • A TV series you follow has new episodes available to watch
  • An actor or director you follow has new movies or TV episodes available to watch

If you no longer want to receive updates for a specific title, actor or director, you can unfollow either from a My Feed update or from Roku Search by selecting "Unfollow this".  All updates within My Feed will be removed and you will no longer receive new updates for that particular item.

  • Note: The first time you visit My Feed, you will not have any updates. As you follow titles, actors or directors, you will receive a status confirmation within My Feed indicating you have followed the item but that there are no updates at this time. My Feed alerts will appear at the top of My Feed as they become available.

Browse popular movies and TV series

The Movies and TV Shows tiles within My Feed allow you to browse the most popular entertainment on the Roku platform. You can immediately find a show or movie to watch, or choose to follow the movie or show to receive updates within My Feed at a later time.

Explore movies coming soon to the Roku platform

From Movies Coming Soon, you can browse a wide variety of movies that are currently in theaters or too new to be available for streaming on the Roku platform. You can follow any of these items and receive automatic updates when the movie becomes available to stream.

  • Tip: If you do not plan to see a movie in the theater, you can follow it from Movies Coming Soon and receive an update when it becomes available to purchase and/or rent from channels available on the Roku platform.
