As churches around the nation opt for a digital experience to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, you may be wondering how to stream your church’s live service to your TV. While the methods vary based on your TV model, here are the most popular streaming options for your living room church service.
Many churches stream services to YouTube. You’ll be able to stream it to any modern TV or streaming device. If your TV has a YouTube app, simply search for your church’s YouTube channel and select the live stream. If you are using a Chromecast or Roku TV, you may be able to initiate the stream from a smartphone or tablet. Look for the Cast icon on the YouTube app and select your TV or streaming device from the list. For detailed instructions on your specific TV or streaming device, see this tutorial on Google’s website.
You can view Facebook Live streams on most smart TVs or streaming devices. You can initiate the stream by tapping the Cast icon on your Facebook app, or by downloading the Facebook Watch app for your TV. For more information, see this tutorial on Facebook’s website.
Some churches use Livestream.com to stream their services. Livestream.com offers apps for Roku TV and Apple TV. If you have a Chromecast or other icon, you can watch livestreams with the Cast icon . For more information, see this tutorial on Livestream’s website.
If your church uses a platform to live stream that is not listed, look for the Cast icon in the live stream window, or ask other members of your church congregation if they know how to stream it to a TV.
If your church has the My Sermon Notes app
You will still be able to take fill-in-the-blank sermon notes from home as you follow along with the sermon. The My Sermon Notes app will continue to function as normal. Our team is working remotely and available during our standard support hours.
