Your Roku player may be an entertainment machine at heart, but it's also becoming an information hub. Roku has expanded its search feature to look for videos across 50 services, that now include news channels. If you want to find the latest election coverage from the big four US broadcasters (ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC), you can. The approach works by date, too, so you can find everything that happened on a given day instead of having to search by topic. Roku's news search selection is small right now, but there are promises of more partners coming in the months ahead.
