Fla. Church Launches Live Channel on Roku


A release by PR Newswire reports that megachurch Northland, A Church Distributed in Florida has launched the first live church channel on Roku, a set-top device that doesn’t require a computer or complicated PC-to-TV hookups. The free channel offers access to live worship services, past sermons, music, and classes. So far, more than 2,100 people have already installed Northland’s Roku channel, and other churches are inquiring at Northland about how to use the technology for their own services. Marty Taylor, Northland’s executive director of media and technology, said, “Roku has big potential as a community builder and makes it easier to gather people together for worship as the Bible challenges us to do in Hebrews 10:25. Taylor also said the technology is ideal for planting house churches “because it removes the need for a computer and is so easy to use and set up.” More than 4,000 people worship each week with Northland online.
