    The white plus icon means the show/movie is available from a source you have unchecked. So, it may be available on TV, but only on a channel you don't have checked (in the Channel List), or it may be available from a video provider you have unchecked (in the Video Provider List).

    We wanted you to know there is *some* way to get the show/movie, but we didn't want to put a logo in front of you for a provider you said you didn't want.

    Margret,

    That is very cool! Any thoughts about creating an icon for a source that is completely unchecked in the channel list. For example, I don't subscribe to Showtime but I know there is a program on Showtime called Homeland that is a highly rated new series --> http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1796960/

    When I search for Homeland I get nothing related to the 2011 TV Series. I would have preferred to see a white icon showing that it is available but I would need to subscribe to Showtime to see it!

    Thanks!

    I was trying to figure out a way to show a White Plus Icon. So far I've struck out trying to get one to appear.

    For example, I deselected Netflix on the Video Provider List and than searched for Star Trek. I see the 2009 movie but it shows its available on Amazon for purchase. I guess I need to find a show that is only available on Netflix for it to show up?!?

    Sounds like it's for CHANNELS you've de-selected, specifically. Un-check ABC Family, then search for a Harry Potter movie. That should do the trick. :cool:

    It must be for channels because I have all my video providers active.

    Why not put the logo there, but "greyed out", so as to tell them who's got it but indicate extra steps will be needed to get it?
