What happened to the fall wallpaper?

Jump to solution

There was a new autumn equinox wallpaper that appeared on my Roku late September and today, it is gone. Usually, the special themes are available after they expire and this one is just gone. It was my favorite and I would like to have kept it as my wallpaper. Does anyone know how to get this back? It featured lanterns and I think a bridge. It was gorgeous.

Hello @Purezion

Thanks for posting here in the Community!

Please be advised that Seasonal Themes expire or only appear for a short period of time. With that being said, there's no option to get it back or to set it as a permanent theme for your Roku device. 

For more information, you can visit this link: How do I change the theme pack to adjust the look of the Roku® interface?

I hope this helps!


All the best,
Kariza

I totally agree!  It was my favorite also… I noticed it was missing as soon as I turned my tv on.  I searched and searched and then had gave up.  Now it’s November and I just thought about checking google for an answer.  Very depressing when I read the answer below.

Hi Kariza,

While I appreciate your answer to the original posters request I don't see why the fall equinox wallpaper cannot be added to your wallpaper library as a selection. This has been done already for numerous other seasonal wallpapers such as 4th of July, Winter Wonderland, Asian Heritage month, Juneteenth, Halloween (four of them),  Dia de los Muertos (one dated 2019), etc. Those are all seasonal selections.

 

It can be done.

 

I respectfully request you pass on the request to those who add Roku wallpapers to your library.

 

Thank you.

Hi Kariza!

I agree with so many others that this should definitely be made into a downloadable wallpaper like it's been done repeatedly in the past. The fall 2021 wallpaper is the best one I've seen on Roku and I truly miss it. I'm also formally requesting its return, thank you!

I agree with everyone else on this thread that the wallpapers should be made available permanently but since I bought my Roku TV the one thing I have found is that Roku is not very responsive to its customers. Even though Roku basically pioneered the smart TV platform it has fallen far behind its competition and it almost seems like that is done intentionally. Look at the selection of themes and wallpapers available and that speaks volumes about what this company is willing to invest and it's products and its customers.

I came to the help forum specifically to ask why the selection of wallpapers is so sparse.  Not only should the special seasonal wallpapers be available year-round, but the overall selection in general should be a lot more expansive.  We've had our Roku TV for a few years now, and it's astounding how limited the wallpaper selection remains.  If need be, I'd even be willing to pay a small fee to open up the options.
