In Settings, I don’t see an option to view underwater screensavers. Are they buried in the aerial videos? I’d like that, actually.

I’m using an Apple TV, 4th gen. I see other new features on here.

They get mixed in with the rest of the Aerial screen savers. I've only seen one underwater one so far, but I know they're just part of the normal rotation.

I use the Aerial screensaver on my iMac... and with that, you can choose which video/screensavers you use (or don't use)... unfortunately, I don't see an option in the AppleTV screensaver "config" to select which ones play. That would be a great option, but, alas, its Apple, and you only get one choice - what Apple wants to give you.

Cool. The new OS version downloaded automatically overnight so I assume they’ll slowly creep in. Thanks.

If you don't want to wait for them to show up, go into the screensaver settings and set it to download new ones daily. Then tomorrow change it back to weekly/monthly. It should download a new batch with underwater ones.

I have 7 underwater and one new space screensaver so far since the official release. I have always had it set to daily. I have over 70 screensavers overall now. This is on a 64 GB AppleTV 4K.

I was getting Beta Updates and the last one to come out didn't have them. Then I saw ads all over for tvOS 13 Public. So I went to update from the Beta. It wouldn't do it. It said I was update to date already. So I disconnected from the Beta option and left it. Completely forgetting, I turned on my ATV4K the other night and there was a huge screen saying that a "Great New Update" was available and I could have it now if I wanted. So I said yes. When all said and done, I now have tvOS 13.2 (not Beta) and only two screen savers. One of San Diego Seals swimming on blue water and the fly through pollution to the Hollwood sign. After all that . . . But the Seals are pretty cool. Maybe now that I have the "appropriate" update I'll get the rest . . .

The way in which Apple implemented screen savers in tvOS is needlessly opaque and effectively convoluted.

Just let users choose which ones they want, and clearly show how to download them, and how much space they'll consume.

The current setup, which gives users little control, prompts repeated questions, and involves OS updates as part of efforts to locate particular screen savers is bass ackwards at best.

How do you know you have over 70? Is there a way to check or do you just keep a notebook to track them?

Man I've been awake too long. I read your subject as UNDERWEAR screensavers. It is an interesting concept though...
