When you tap search on the top bar, a search field opens at the top of the screen. A back arrow appears to the left; you can tap it to return to the previous screen.
Enter the text you want to find—a movie or TV show title, an actor's name, sports team name, or a network—and tap return on the keyboard. As you type, suggested searches appear below the typing area. Tap a suggestion, or finish typing your search. The search results appear.
Search finds shows from your DVR recordings, on demand, VUDU (if activated), and TV listings.
You can watch Netflix, VUDU, and some live and on demand shows on your mobile device. You can't watch shows from your DVR on your mobile device.
You can also use your remote control to search for content.
