Help & troubleshooting for channels on your Roku device, including adding/removing channels, logging in to, authenticating, or activating a channel, channel-specific playback issues, assistance contacting channel publishers to report issues, and adjusting channel-specific settings.
First off, THANK YOU for the brilliant CLOC screensaver! We've thoroughly enjoyed having it these past few years, not the least of which for the weather information. And yes, we have your Private version.
Which leads me to my question: I've read that all Private "channels" on Roku will be deleted in Feb 2022, if and only "approved" channels, using Roku's toolkit(?) will be available.
With that in mind, is there any good news that CLOC will still be available beyond next month?
Thanks in advance for your...time (sorry, couldn't resist
I will probably get around to finally fixing the public Channel Store version to meet Roku's new criteria. The private one will definitely go away. I'm toying with the idea of making it a 99 cent subscription.

That would be great, I would hate to lose it. That green bundle of information "ponging" around our tv screen has become a mainstay! I for one would be more than happy to pay a subscription. I'm guessing you are talking about a 99 cent/month. I would hope that if you do add the subscription price, you would also consider allowing a 'lifetime' option.
Forgive me if this is an ignorant question, but do you have other Roku channels?
I've loved this screen saver for years and have used the private version for quite a while. I understand wanting to charge a subscription and while I don't mind paying for a quality product like yours, I *hate* the subscription model. I'd much rather pay a larger around ($4.99?) up front. I understand *why* developers like the subscription model, but speaking for myself I don't think I would ever pay for a product of this type using this model. I don't do it on my iphone and I wouldn't do it on my Roku. Good luck and thanks for the years of usage of a GREAT product. And as I said I don't mind paying for it....I just hate getting into monthly obligations like that.
That's cool. Soma FM is one of my favorite music channels, especially at Christmastime. Will check out Radio Paradise.
Yes, it's a complete bummer that the private channels are going away. Especially for people like yourself who have invested so much time and effort into them. As I understand it, it was the 'after hours' stuff that was the final straw, although that had been going on for many years.
I have using the private version of the cloc screen saver because in addition to the time it also displayed the current weather. Well today that screen saver disappeared. I went back to the channel store version of cloc. This version allows me to configure for display of the current weather but, when the screen saver is active only the time is displayed.
This is the reason why I went to the private version in the first place.
The old Roku Private Channels, AKA non-certified apps, are being sunset as it. If the developer releases a version with weather, then it will be available, but failing that, it won't be available as a private app.
