General Conference Live on Apple TV?

Postby Hilohi » Tue Apr 02, 2013 11:38 pm

Will I be able to watch General Conference live on Apple TV? I couldn't find a definitive answer by using Google or by searching here.

The Church's website says that GC can be watched on Apple TV via iTunes. However, its website also says that availability is 1 day, which is obviously not live.

I've been debating whether I should buy an Apple TV or not, and being able to watch GC live would probably be the deal maker.

As far as I know it is not "live" on Apple TV anywhere. Being able to watch it after the fact is very nice on Apple TV as you can view it in HD from podcasts. The easiest way for me to watch it in my home since I don't have a cable station that covers it, is to simply pick it up on my Mac on lds.org and then use AirPlay from my Mac to push it to my Apple TV. Works fantastic.

General Conference live is excellent on a Roku device via the Mormon Channel.

The BYUtv app for iOS devices can also stream conference to your Apple TV with AirPlay...

It was dispapointing this conference on my mac, iphone 4, and apple tv. Unlike last conference, I couldn't stream it to my apple tv. There was no button. I tried downloading mormon channel, and byu tv and both did not work. Super sad. Then when I expanded the general conference in full screen there was a hiccup in the code.
Sad day

I'm doing it fine from Mac. The icon for AirPlay will only appear if your Mac sees a viable AirPlay receiver. You may want to check that your AirPlay has network connectivity to your home network.

I have found a way to watch conference on the Apple TV. In the Youtube channel, search for the exact Case-Sensitive YouTube video code. For example, the April 2015 Saturday Morning session is found at http://youtu.be/ZUhDVwCDrMY (I got this from this Google+ post https://plus.google.com/110097013145129641773/posts/NDVvH2QUfk9 from a Google search for "lds conference"). Thus on the Apple TV you need to search for "ZUhDVwCDrMY".

I've tried this using the apple tv app with no luck. Could you include step by step instructions? Thank you.

(1) Go to https://plus.google.com/110097013145129641773, the Google+ channel for LDS General Conference
(2) At 9:00 am each morning of general conference they posted a link to that day's YouTube streamed conference video.
(3) Click the image and open it at youtube.com get the share link. For today it is http://youtu.be/Vse1i0BDv5M
(4) On your Apple TV, search for "Vse1i0BDv5M". This is case sensitive and so you will be switching between uppercase and lowercase tabs.
(5) That day's conference should display, where you can click on it.

I hope that helps. No guarantees that this will work next conference.

Sorry, you have to go to the YouTube app on the Apple TV to search for that string.
