When I turned on my Roku 3 around 2pm on Saturday, April 18, 2015, to watch some cricket while I ate my late brunch I noticed, at once, that something was different. Rather than the rather peaceful, light blue, “Under Sea” theme — that I had paid all of $0.99 to get — I now had a “Star Wars” theme.
The Roku had automatically installed and activated it. I went into my ‘Themes’ setting and had a look. “Star Wars” had been added. My other themes, including the one I paid for was still there. I was cool. I don’t mind “Star Wars”. My son, now 23, was a HUGE fan. I saw most of the movies, with him, multiple times, and I have to confess, sheepishly if need be, that I have no clue what they were all about. Very clever and vaguely entertaining BUT I was never able to work out what it was all about.
Not sure if this is but a temporary promotion to plug their new “Star Wars” programming. Maybe the theme will automatically disappear in much the same way that it appeared. Just wanted to share with you.
