Changing the Themepack:

A themepack is an integrated collection of home screen wallpaper, screensaver, and sound effects that have been designed to look and function cohesively within a certain theme. For example, the rainforest Theme pack includes a screensaver that depicts woods, streams, and various wild creatures as well as wallpaper for the home screen that depicts a rainforest and sounds that imitate the noises of jungle animals.

Why does Roku change my wallpaper?

Your Roku device comes pre-installed with a screensaver that activates itself whenever the Roku device is left idle for an extended period of time. We will occasionally switch the screensaver that is pre-installed on Roku devices, and in rare instances, we will use a different screensaver on certain Roku devices.

Are all Roku screensavers free?
