Help starting out with screensaver channel

Hi, 

I want to start some free screensaver channels. 

What would be the easiest way, and what device would you recommend using? 

Thanks.

Documentation for screensavers can be found here

https://developer.roku.com/docs/developer-program/media-playback/screensavers.md 

 

Not sure what you are referring to by recommended device as all rokus are able to play screensavers. If your questions is about how to develop a screensaver, you can set up VS code with brightscript extensions.  but if you want to keep things super simple you can use any text editor and a way to create zip files on any platform. start with the code samples linked to at the bottom of the linked docs page.
