Getting New themes

You can get new themes for your Roku device from the Roku channel store itself.

So to get new themes:

  1. Open Roku channel Store.
  2. Go to Themes categories and add a theme as you’d add a channel.
  3. Finally, go to Settings > Themes > My themes and apply the theme from there.

Featured Themes

Roku also provides seasonal or featured themes to match the ongoing festival or season. For instance, Christmas or thanksgiving. This setting is enabled by default, and the new theme will be applied automatically.

The theme lasts for at least 3 days. After expiring, the previous theme will be applied automatically.

If you don’t want this, you can also disable this feature by following these methods:

  1. Open Settings > Themes, after pressing the Home button on your remote.
  2. Under featured themes, Remove tick mark from the Enable featured themes option.

Doing this will no longer apply seasonal themes. But if you wish, you can simply enable it again.


So, to sum up, applying new themes on your Roku device is easy. With themes, you can customize your home screen to match your needs. Also, you can customize your Roku device using Screensavers and much more.

But mostly, I would prefer using seasonal themes because they will be new, automatic, and suits the season to enhance the overall experience.
