It could be the latest 10 update, or the need for the Channels being affected needing to update their programming to accomodate the Roku 10 update. Good idea to let the individual Channels like Paramount and the others know the issues you are having, especially since occuring while in apps and using in-app screensavers.
You can try doing a manual System Update. This updates both the OS and installed Channels (easy way to update all channels at same time). Settings...System...System Update.
Otherwise, I think you will have to continue your workaround fix. (Exit apps rather than allowing the screensaver to wreak havoc). At least until someone releases a patch, whether Roku or the Channel developers themselves. (they may not even know a problem exists unless a user alerts them to it).

I know this post is over a year old, but I had a similar issue and found a way to fix this (here's the link also found below). I knew all about the Hulu crashing issue, and thankfully that has been resolved; I want to thank you for calling them and helping to get this fixed even though they gave you the runaround. I gave you a Kudo for that because I know how annoying it is to deal with Hulu's customer service, but you did end up helping with that.
Basically, this in-channel screensaver glitch happened again with OS 11, and your issue was strikingly familiar to what happened to me and others with this recent update. You should have received a patch by now with a system update since Roku finally fixed this newest in-channel screensaver issue, but those of us who have Micro-SD card slots in our Roku devices were left behind and weren't able to get the patch that was silently rolled out.
I Googled and saw that your Roku Premiere doesn't come with a Micro-SD card slot like mine, so if you're still having issues, or have future issues with this, just skip the SD card part (unless I'm wrong). I've just seen that no one has come up with a solution to this, so I'll post my link in any thread I find with this unresolved issue. Hence, no more people have problems with this if you or anyone in the community still has a similar issue and can't find the thread my post is on.
I'm thinking that with every OS update, I'll just redo the steps I posted in my link to solve any wrinkles that may come up. So you might find this to be helpful even if you don't have this issue currently, as this may just help your Roku run smoother and/or faster since this resets certain aspects of the Roku that may be unknowingly broken after an OS update. This doesn't hard reset it, so you don't lose your passwords, settings, and channel placement when doing this. Actually, come to think of it, I'm going to do this with all my Roku devices to see if it helps speed them up because the older ones have gotten noticeably slower with every OS update and this greatly sped up my Roku 3. I have no idea if it will speed things up in my Roku devices that don't have Micro-SD card slots, but it's worth a try.
I hope this helps you or someone out there who needs this fixed, as this is a recurring glitch. So here's a link to my post:
