component used for welcome screen Netflix

Hi, I am building a roku app and i want the welcome screen to be similar to the one that Netflix has. Netflix has a image in background and some text in the front with some buttons.

Which components(roScreen,roParagraphScreen,roImageCanvas or anyother) should I go with?

Thanks.

I haven't really tried using roImageCanvas other than a few basic examples in the SDK and online tutorials. So maybe it would work for this. Certainly roScreen is very flexible and customizable to do "anything", although more complicated to learn.

I would definitely recommend roImageCanvas for that type of screen.

Re: component used for welcome screen Netflix

thank you for the reply guys.

If I am going to use a roScreen then how do you add a button(in my case a sign in button)?
