What Is Internet TV?

Internet TV (also referred to as Web-enabled, OTT [over-the-top], and broadband TV) is a way to access and view Internet streaming content on a television. Reasons for using Internet TV might include time shifted viewing (recording for later viewing), ease of access, and in some cases cutting cable in favor of Internet streamed media. 


Recently, content owners have been testing other platforms outside the broadcast airwaves to access Internet streamed media.  Many have found success in accessing content through set-top boxes (iSTB), gaming consoles, and Web-connected TVs. Devices like Roku, Apple TV, and Chromecast give people access to VOD (video-on-demand) content for playback from the Internet directly to their home TV.

These devices and connected televisions offer a diverse selection of content as well as movies and TV series associated with large networks. Netflix, Hulu Plus, and Amazon are three major content providers found on most devices. YouTube has also provided an application for many connected devices and TVs.

When choosing a device, take into consideration your viewing habits and what you and your family enjoy watching. Each device comes with different features and available content and range in price from U.S. $50 to $300. You can check out many of these devices at a local electronics store.

The Church and Internet TV

The Church has a keen interest in broadband TV and its potential for making Church-related media available for access and playback in the home. For the Church, Internet TV allows people around the world to access Church content in homes and meetinghouses. With a Web-connected device or television, members can access and play all the media the Church creates. Possible uses might include family home evening, seminary and institute, Church Sunday classes, and leadership training.

To date, devices like the Roku Box and Apple TV can be used to access and play Church-related media on your home television. Available content includes live broadcasts, Mormon Messages, general conferences, CES devotionals, “I’m a Mormon” ads, youth media, and the LDS radio series.

The Mormon Channel, in particular, is actively involved in investigating and preparing channels and applications for many of these devices to benefit members worldwide. The Mormon Channel currently provides several video and audio series that can be accessed and played on any home TV with a number of devices. Check back occasionally to view what devices are compatible with Mormon Channel playback and related media. See the list below for supported devices and other devices being prepared or evaluated.
