I had also had a great idea of having the Netflix channel be able to play a preview or movie trailer directly from the Play Menu??!?!?! One other thing that is needed is a better Search result feature from the Netflix channel, allowing the user to use a search filter by actors, director, year, genre and more than 10 search results at a time!?!?!?!?!!
It's possible they could expand (or offer an option to expand) some of the text descriptions from netflix, since I think some of them on Roku don't read back the full text of what's available on Netflix.
From there, it's possible they should look at going to something like imdb.com.
Regarding improving the Netflix search function on Roku, I agree. The search is better with the Amazon channel on Roku, so I guess they could take that as a model.
