Netflix & Prime Search

I've recently upgraded from V6, can anyone confirm whether the TV360 voice search can/will return search results from Netflix and Amazon Prime Video when content is available? At the moment I need to manually launch and search in each of these apps. 

'Boxsets' appears to return shows available on iPlayer but not other '3rd party' apps. My v6 did this and was a much used feature in my household.

Re: Netflix & Prime Search

The word on the street is that this will be available in a future update. There's no saying exactly when, however.

Re: Netflix & Prime Search

Hey, Netflix won’t be available just yet, like with Sky Q they aren’t keen on integrating their results. Amazon Prime Video is coming  very soon...

Re: Netflix & Prime Search

Thanks for confirming. Seems strange though considering the TiVo powered V6 already had Netflix search integration...

Re: Netflix & Prime Search

Releasing the 360 while requiring basic multiple upgrades is just shocking from virgin. Total disaster from virgin

Re: Netflix & Prime Search

It’s not fully released yet though, amazon prime video will be updated before launch at the end of the year. 

The integration that TiVo and V6 have with Netflix will never bettered by anyone. Ever. Netflix just won’t do that anymore. 

However, we will find a way to include Netflix results in search. It’s just going to take some time. Until then just say “netflix” into the remote, it’s a lot quicker than V6 at launching the app!

Re: Netflix & Prime Search

Netflix are definitely making it difficult to include their content in aggregated results at the moment. The best implementation seems to be in Google TV, which even lets you add Netflix content to your watchlist. (Even then, there's a little wrinkle at the moment where Netflix seems to be preventing this from working for Netflix Originals).
