Trailers for TV shows

Hello.

I have noticed that some, not many of my tv shows now have a trailer. But when I click the trailer button nothing happens.

So far I got a trailer appearing on Who's Line is it anyway? Big Bang Theory and Sherlock.

They do nothing but I see a button to view trailer. It only seems to be on my Roku not on my iPad. On my iPad I do not see the trailer option. Is this new and will work for more shows soon?

Cause that would be amazing.

    @batnick you were right. It looks like TV extras is an upcoming feature! We'll get this fixed on the Roku shortly.

    This sounds like a bug on the Roku. Where exactly are you seeing a trailer button for TV shows? If you can, please post a picture.

    Hmm I wonder if you refer to a small button next to episode names in episode lists with an eye in it.

    Hello.

    I have attached photos of it. It seems that it mainly appears to have trailers in older shows and shows that have multiple seasons. Although one of the included photos only has 1 season. I understand it sounds like a bug. But if this could be a feature that works, that would be amazing.

    Sometimes seeing a trailer of a show would be amazing.

    How did you get them to show up in the first place? The movie trailers work fine for me but not the TV trailers

    Hi I have the same issue. Almost all of my library movies show a trailer but none of the TV shows do, how do I enable this?
