Streaming vs Satellite

Postby SheffieldTR » Wed Apr 02, 2008 8:16 am

The question has been asked a number of times so we thought it would be a good idea to address it here.
I have heard that Internet Streaming is going to replace Satellite transmission for broadcasts and events. Is that true?

The short answer is that for events originating in Salt Lake City, Utah, Satellite is the current mode of choice and will be for the foreseeable future.

While it is true that this has been looked at in the past and could be looked at again in the future as technology improves, it is not the Church’s plan to replace satellite with internet streaming or video conferencing.

Having said that, there may be applications locally where Internet Streaming could augment or assist local needs around certain broadcast events such as stake overflow for General Conference, regional events and stake conference overflows as well as addressing extended travel issues in some areas.
