    Siri is very cool on the new Apple TV, but what about the ability to dictate a search within an app like YouTube or Netflix??

    YouTube (and most other apps) not possible until Apple release the Siri sdk to all developers early next year.

    Apps like Netflix fall under universal search, so if you ask Siri to search for a film, it will return matching results for all currently compatible apps including if it's on Netflix. Just click on the film and you'll see a row of buttons showing where you can watch it. If Netflix is one of them, just click on that button to be taken to it.

    Wish it was fixed.. Just like we can dictate in any app where the keyboard is available on the IPhone, seems like this should have been integrated across all apps.. Since they're pushing voice searching so much.

    Yeah, it's a bit annoying but it is definitely coming. Hopefully before too long.

    If you know it is on Netflix you can also say "play <whatever> on Netflix". For my daughter, I can say "show me my little pony on Netflix" and it gives a list I can choose from.

    Just need to be able to do this everywhere! Including home sharing.

    Siri searching on your local network is not happening. You have Siri on your phone right now. Try using it to search homesharing
