Smart TVs?

Postby craiggsmith » Sun Aug 19, 2018 9:29 am

We are going to get a couple new large TVs. Is there any reason to get a smart TV? Can you stream church videos directly through any of them?

Attempting to stream video via the meetinghouse internet is not advised - at least not under normal conditions. It's OK during stake conference when you turn off all the APs.

If you can find one that will play back from a memory device, and has a useable interface, that might be a consideration. (If you can figure out how to secure the storage.)

Yes, I know, but it’s hard to get the word out to everyone, and sometimes you have unplanned situations. But I’m also thinking of things like baptisms where bandwidth isn’t an issue

I know there used to be the Roku channel but I think that went away, and I assume you’d have to have an account anyway. I assume there’s no other way?
