What happened to the aquarium?

When i first got my Roku Ultra it had a nice aquarium as the screen saver.
Now it has the same purple pink city-scape as my Roku 3.
What happened?
How can I get the aquarium back?

Re: What happened to the aquarium?

It should be in your devices Settings menu. Go to the list on the left & select Settings, then there should be an option for Screensaver & choose the one you want. The purple city (I think its cool) seems to be the default one now, but you can choose a new one for yours. FYI they occasionally 'push' holiday ones now & then so you might wake up once in a while on holiday (Valentines, 4th of July) to a temporary new one now & then. Personally I think its a nice touch.

You can also disable the Featured Themes in the themes menu if you don't want Roku to change them on you. To my understanding the aquarium is only available now on 4K devices. So your Ultra should still have it available. There are dozens of screensavers available, but note that some require a payment.

Re: What happened to the aquarium?

I chimed in on a similar post last month for someone who lost the Aquarium screensaver due to not having a 4K Roku device. 

This Roku screensaver appears to be the classic "Sachs Marine Aquarium" screensaver that Roku probably licensed, and was also licensed by Microsoft at one time. You can check out a version of it here:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ldeOT3Ysgs[/url:3fy5m5ze]  

The video above is a non-branded version...
