OKKO Screensavers blocked by Roku

Dear valued user,

We hope this message finds you well. Unfortunately Roku has disabled all of our screensavers, and we are currently working to restore them. We understand that our audience, which comprises around 2 million users, relies on and enjoys our applications. We appreciate your patience and attention to this matter.

Over the past three years, we have been committed to maintaining our screensavers and adding new features such as a Clock, Crypto market price, and Weather updates. Our screensavers have been freely available to all users, with the exception of our Weather widget, which requires an additional fee for access to weather data. We are proud to say that our screensavers are beloved among Roku users, and we are grateful for the positive ratings and feedback that inspire us to keep improving.

Unfortunately, we do not have the ability to manage disabled applications. If you have any subscriptions, we encourage you to reach out to Roku for a refund. We want to reassure you that we are doing everything in our power to restore our applications as soon as possible. Any new information will be posted on our website at 

Once again, we apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused, and we appreciate your continued support.

Best regards,
The OkkoCorp Team

Re: OKKO Screensavers blocked by Roku

Perhaps this is in reaction to the many complaints seen in these forums that the purchase of OKKO's $10 Weather widget only applies to the particular "free" OKKO screensaver for which it was purchased.

Thanks for sharing this update. My favorite Sunset screensaver was gone a few weeks ago, and I was wondering why. I hope they bring them back. I loved those sunset photos so much!

Can always make your own screensavers of sunsets using Roku Photo Streams or using Google PhotoView for Roku and

Both of these are available in the Roku Channel Store.  Basically you just use your own photos and images and can compile a free screensaver.

Re: OKKO Screensavers blocked by Roku

Thank you for sending these links! Yes, I ended up looking into the Roku Photo Stream option prior to finding this thread. I have created my own screensaver with sunset photos that I like from the web, but I really loved the Sunset screensaver from OKKO. It had 1000s of beautiful sunset photos that I can't find on the web. I hope Roku brings them back, but I have found a workaround in the meantime. Thanks again for your helpful response! 🙂
