How to stream, download, and share screen savers in RetailBox

Stream and download screen savers

To stream and download screen savers in RetailBox, use the Collections page or tap Search to view the entire collection alphabetically or search by a specific name.

When you tap on a screen saver card, you can peek into more information about a screen saver, and view a live preview. Tap Play to stream the video over your Wi-Fi or cellular connection, or tap Download to download the entire video file to save to your Library, and watch even when you're not connected to the Internet.

If you want to play a screen saver without viewing its details, tap and hold on a screen saver from Collections or Search, and tap Play.

When you download a screen saver, it's added to the Library, where you can build your own catalogue of screen savers. You can delete individual screen savers by sliding left to right, then tapping Delete. When you remove screen savers from your Library, you will need to be connected to the internet to watch them again. You can remove all screen savers from your Library by tapping the more icon, then selecting Remove All.

With RetailBox 5.9 and earlier, RetailBox limits screen saver downloads to 3GB per month with RetailBox 5.1.2 and later. With older versions of the app, usage is restricted to 500MB per month. Limits reset at 12:00 am Pacific Standard Time on the first day of each month. This does not apply to the RetailBox fall update.​

RetailBox streams high-resolution video content that uses a significant amount of cellular data. You should save your favourite screen savers to the Library when you're connected to Wi-Fi to watch them — even at times when you may not be connected to the internet.

Share screen savers with friends and family

With RetailBox fall update and later, you can use universal links to share specific screen savers to friends and family. If the other user has RetailBox installed on their device already, tapping the link will bring them right to viewing extended video information. If they don't have RetailBox installed, they will be redirected to the RetailBox App Store product page.

To share a screen saver:

  • In a screen saver's preview page, click Share

  • Choose an app to share with

  • Tap Send
