    I got the last Beta and was wondering when I would get the Final 13.0. Nothing would download when many were saying they got it. I heard it mentioned about turning off “Get Betas” would do it, I did and forgot about it. I turned on my ATV4K last night and was greeted with a giant screen saying that there was an update and did I want it. I said yes and when all said and done it was tvOS 13.2. AND now I only have two screen savers. San Diego Seals and Hollywood Pollution flyover.

    How does one access the new oceanic screensavers?

    • Starfish says:

      To see the new Ocean screen savers on Apple TV tvOS 13, first activate the screen saver on Apple TV called Aerial.

      Then you can switch between screen saver locations by swiping right or left on the Apple TV remote touch pad.

      There are seals, kelp, coral reef, jelly fish, barracuda, school of fish, starfish, and they’re all very beautiful.
