Not Hating on the city... But, man I'm tired of the "So Many" San Fran ScreenSavers. I'm sure its a beautiful city... But come on, Lets see some different Ariel stuff! Since I have "No Control" over Ariel Screen savers, I'm stunned that there is NO Grand Canyon, Great Lakes, Vegas, The Rockies, The Appalachian Mts, Mississippi, East Coast Shore (Florida Coast), Niagrara Falls, Idaho, Texas Coast. Basically anything that relates to rest of the Country. I love the 4K SreenSavers... But Apple really needs to diversify like A Lot!

No, I skip the ones I don’t want to see. But I do think there needs to be more variety.

How do you skip the ones you don't want to see? I just bought an Apple TV 4K but I'm still learning how to use it.

It must be random. Before resetting the ATV I was getting sick of seeing the L.A. airport and the many other places in L.A. I didn't even know there were some from San Francisco.

Like, way beyond the USA but without leaving the planet.
Why? I'd love me aerial videos from Mars!! :D

There needs to be more non American screensavers... Australia, Scotland, Norway and Switzerland are a few of the most beautiful places I've been.
Although they have started pushing out some the really old shots no in 4K HDR, which is at least adding a bit of variety. Have you noticed that there's no one single sequence from the Southern Hemisphere?

L. A. has the worst ones. Like who wants to see the highway and the airport? Who at  signed off on that trash?!? It’s not cool like the highway like in Dubai! And the airport looks so dead to me. Like that’s where airplanes go to die. Super depressing. I like the Hollywood sign screensavers though.

I havn't noticed the San Fran ones yet but saying that, I don't spend my time watching any screen savers. I've never had them on my Macs. Do people do that? In fact, i'm not even sure that I've seen any of the ATV screensavers :) Don't they just come on when you leave the room to make espresso in order to save you TV screen and then you hit play again?
Do you guys sit and actually watch them? I guess that takes TV viewing to a whole new level???

Don't sit watch them, but when I'm doing work or just kicking about in the living room I leave the screensavers playing on the TV. They are quite relaxing just to place at while working and daydreaming of taking over the world, especially when the ISS ones appear :D

They really should just bring back After Dark. I'd love to see Totally Twisted, Flying Toasters, Star Trek TNG and all the other screensavers in 4K.

Well, personally I use the the ATV to play music via "Computer", since it is connected to my AVR. And after a short while the screen saver kicks in. Since it may go on for a couple of hours I do happen to watch few of them. Some are quite beautiful, L.A. apart! :D

PS: It is also possible to switch them with the touchpad. Give it a try, it's beautiful! :p
