Helpful Search Tips

  • Use specific words: Stay away from common words and search for specific, unique terms like "galactica" or "halloween".
  • Don't use punctuation: Punctuation such as , . / ! ( ) is ignored by the search engine and is treated the same as a space.
  • Try different terms: There are many words to describe content. For example, television or TV. Try several different words and/or combinations, to vary the results.
