This is the church of standards and conformity. :-)

Okay, now we've hit on one of my biggest pet peeves. :) Premise: We invite non-members to church. We have other people visiting the ward. There are lots of occasions where the first printed material someone sees is the sacrament meeting program. Too often - as in my ward - they look terrible, whethe...

Hear, hear! This has been a frustration of mine for years.

I can't speak to how our channel partners choose to bundle and position the install options for our toolbar, but I can definitely speak to its removal. We publish all the removal steps at this link: http://asksupport.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/2908 If you need any additional support, our C...

Very true, about local programming. However, we live right in between Portland and Eugene, and our neighbors (with digital antennae) have no problem getting local channels OTA.

Believe me, we looked into that. Losing touch with Oprah -- especially in her final season -- was not an option.

I understand the reasons behind the usage; I was just really surprised that similar apps such as Pandora and Live365 didn't have the same power requirements to perform essentially the same functions. But like I said today, I'm completely sold on the app (not to mention the service it provides), and ...

Last week, my family and I drove down to San Jose to see my wife's family. For a good portion of the journey and back, I was able to stream Mormon Channel radio via the iPhone, and pass it through to the stereo in the car. I appreciated the service before, but I REALLY love it now. I've put the batt...

This is very interesting. In addition to archived sessions, will this method work for live sessions, as it is being broadcast from the Conference Center?

This is an interesting thread to stumble upon. In a couple months, our DirecTV contract will be up, and we fully intend to cancel it, and replace it with an AppleTV. This will allow us to still see most of the programs we want (although with no DVR capability), and even if we 'rent' an episode for 9...

I have had the Mormon Channel app installed on my iPhone, but didn't really use it seriously until this past weekend, when I was traveling a lot and still wanted to hear General Conference. The app proved magnificent, and I seemed to recall in the past I could only use it when connected through WiFi...
