I see Aquarium Screensaver on my 1,3 and Express now (paid version), but while Aquatic Life shows in Search it's not actually available, just a blank pic where the preview should be and no way to install.

So, since the aquatic life screen saver isn't on my list anymore does Roku expect us to purchase it now?

It's still working on my Ultra and the picture of City Scroll that was briefly accompanying it in the menu is gone.

It has never been available on my 3's and it still isn't.

You should be able to search for it on your Roku and install it for free.  I was able to.  It does place a channel icon on your home screen in addition to it being listed in the screensaver menu.

I checked my Ultra last night and the aquarium screensaver was still there. I did not have the city stroll one but I searched for it and added it manually. On our Roku 3 and Roku stick + in the bedrooms, the city stroll was on there automatically.

I was out of town for a week. When I returned the Aquarium was back. Problem solved as far as I'm concerned!

I spoke with CS tonight about it, and they're asking for this information so they can see what's going on.  I'm unable to reproduce it on my end.

Any new info on this..??

Still don't have this.  Roku just seems like an abandoned thing in general now. Haven't seen a single improvement update for this thing in years.

Then you haven't been paying attention. Voice search for one, private listening through either a phone/tablet app or the Roku remote, 4K, HDR, MPEG-2 support. Those are just quickly off the top of my head. There's been plenty more. And when I browse the screensavers, I see there are 582 available. No, many are not free, but there's a screensaver for almost anyone there, most less than $2 if they aren't free.

Voice search is useless to me as I don't have a voice button or microphone.
Private listening is useless to me as I never watch tv alone.

Having 'hundreds of screensavers' available to me is useless as they're all terribly made and low quality.  Most are paid, and are in no way deserving of money due to how terrible they are.  The only decent ones were build in and removed by Roku.

I'm not sure what this has to do with anything, this is a forum asking for them to be given back after being taken away.

What it "has to do with" is the gratuitous comment you made about Roku seeming like an abandoned thing without a single improvement over the recent past, which has nothing whatsoever to do with what you said this whole thing was about (giving back a feature).  Your response to the person who commented about some of the newer features is that you don't use them. Well, you don't use them. That's your choice.  But they are improvements, irrespective of whether you avail yourself of them.

Hi everyone, 

Thanks for sharing the feedback here. The Aquatic Life screensaver is only available on 4K capable Roku devices. See more here: https://support.roku.com/article/212015418-how-do-i-change-the-screensaver-on-my-roku-streaming-device-

Hope that helps clarify things a bit. 

Thanks,

That doesn't make sense.  I had the screensaver for years on my non 4k device.  I have to buy a new tv to get the screensaver back?!
