UK Roku Official Channels - Screensavers & Apps Genre

Welcome back, everyone !!

We'll be keeping it short and sweet this Sunday, with a special selection of eighty-seven channels from the "Screensavers & Apps"genre (apologies to anyone with a lisp for that intro!) as can be currently found in the "Official" Roku UK Channel Store and, in doing so, we'll be trying to avoid any (more) superfluous "S's" in the process !!

So, sit back and cast your eyes over this next installment from my series of posts designed to give you the skinny on exactly which channels are available on Roku UK and help you build a complete list of what's on offer when you choose to invest in one of these smart streaming media players...

In fact, they're so smart most of them even come with a cable that will allow you to turn an old CRT television into a "Smart TV" without so much as an HD cable, never mind an HD TV, in sight. Now, if that doesn't entice some of you TV technophobes to dig into your wallets and join us in the present century, I don't know what will !!

But, as usual, I digress... so, without further delay, here's a list of the 87 channels that populate the "Screensavers & Apps" genre in the "Official" Roku UK Channel Store:-

PLEASE NOTE:- This information was last updated on Sunday 24th May 2015 with all channel details accurate as of Saturday 23rd May 2015. Therefore, when viewing this list... you should ignore the original date of the post and, instead, refer to this section for precise details on when the "Screensavers & Apps" category listing was compiled.


Okay, okay... not such a great job of avoiding the "S's" but, when you're listing eighty-seven screensavers, there's not much chance of avoiding them is there?!! Anyway, that now brings our tally to just over the thirteen hundred mark... with 1,303 channels having been listed from the (current) total of 1,669 that are available in the Roku UK Channel Store.

Fortunately, this means we're not far off the "over 1,400 channels and counting..." introductory paragraph (currently) found on the Roku (UK) website although it would have been nice if they (i.e. Roku themselves) had listed exactly what those channels were, rather than leaving it for someone like me to do in my (very limited) spare time. Still, if it helps anyone out who may have been putting-off buying a Roku device for lack of information on it, then it's time well spent.

More importantly... that leaves us with just three more categories for which we need detailed listings and, in case you didn't read my earlier post with the Official Roku UK Channel Store Overview, next up will be the "Religion & Spirituality" genre. So, if you'd like to discover the 278 channels available you'll need to come back and check out my next post, which will provide you with an itemised listing of what is on offer.

Until the next time, then...

That's all folks !!
