Playing Saints Channel Music on Alexa

For a few years we have been able to use Alexa to play Sunday music while getting ready for church, Sunday mornings. "Alexa, play Mormon Channel Music on TuneIn" was the command that worked the best. But sometimes this only produced the Talk channel.

More recently, the channel changed names to Saints Channel and now when I ask, all I can get is Saints Channel Talk on TuneIn.

Anyone know if there is a way to stream Saints channel music through Alexa? Please share the voice command or other items required. Searching through the Alexa app is pretty worthless as the Alexa team seems to be promoting voice command development.

If you login to Alexa (for me I use my Apple iPad Alexa app) it will show all the recently played. You can then scroll to the last time it worked (mine shows the old Mormon channel radio icon) and I can press on it to play. I ask Alexa what is playing and she says it is Saints Channel Music but if I try to use those words she can only find the Saints Channel Talk radio..

Not sure if the disconnect is with Tunein which provides the stream (I believe) or Alexa. But the name change caused this.

Now, if only they hadn’t switched over to Christmas music before Thanksgiving....I mean seriously....:)

Would be swell if the Church’s tech group actually had to use the products they put out. This type of thing most likely wouldn’t have happened or would have been fixed very quickly....versus the current who knows if they are even aware given it has been over a month maybe two.

The hard part is that there are so many channels to publish the same content to, because everyone wants their content delivered in a different way. I imagine it would be hard for the content team to remember to check each channel (Gospel Library, Saints Channel, Sacred Music, TuneIn, iTunes Store, general conference website, Gospel Library Online, YouTube, Alexa...) – let alone to remember that a certain channel exists, as team members come and go.

Thank you!

Using this I discovered that I could set a routine (in the Alexa app) with command words of my choosing if I set the action to play "Station Saints Channel Music" from TuneIn. (No quotes in app entry.)

Hopefully this makes your life easier!
