NEWS: “Beyond Today” TV Now on Roku

January 30, 2013

We are very pleased to report that Beyond Today television now has a dedicated Roku channel.

Appearing in the “Religion and Spirituality” category, Roku users can now watch Beyond Today any time of the day or night, and on demand and in hi-definition. In addition to our full 30-minute program, BT Dailies are also available. A new 3-minute video is posted every weekday. These include discussion of breaking news items, plus commentary on Christian-living topics and the moral issues of our day.

There are currently 730 channels in 16 categories listed on the Roku channel guide. Roku, founded in 2002 by Anthony Wood, has sold about five million units so far.

Here is a description about Roku from the company’s “about” page:

Roku…is…the market leader in streaming entertainment devices for the TV with millions of units sold. Roku has always believed that anything you want to watch, listen to, and enjoy should simply be there on your TV, whenever you want it. Roku streaming players are renowned for their simplicity, variety of entertainment choices, and exceptional value.

If you have a Roku unit, add Beyond Today to your channel listing now. You can watch each week’s new TV program as soon as it’s posted—n the comfort of your living room at a time that is most convenient for you.

We pray that this additional electronic outlet for Beyond Today and the good news of God’s Kingdom will bear fruit and further the work of the Gospel.

  4. Will the channel be available in Canada eventually?

    • We will have to check with Roku as to when (or if) the Beyond Today channel would be available in Canada. Roku is new in Canada and the UK – so it might take some time before all channels are made available. I would suggest doing a search on Google for this – there might be some settings in your Roku account that you can change. I have also read that it might depend on the Roku model and where it was purchased if it will allow you view all the Roku channels. Please keep us updated. Thanks!

  5. It is like seeing a science fiction film becoming a reality! For the work of God, it will mean that people all around the world could watch our programs whenever it fits their schedule! No one has to miss anything or be bound to the schedule of the television viewing! Truly an answered prayer! Thanks to Peter and the staff of workers for all their hard work! Let us all continue to pray that this bears the fruit of spreading the gospel throughout the entire world!

  6. Hi both tomorrow’s world and fionline are available in Canada without any problem so I actually think this is probably a setting within the set up of the channel itself. I will keep checking to see if it becomes available but as of this morning it still says not available in your area.

    Thanks Steve
