    Bravo! I was thrilled to see “LifeChurch.tv” pop up in my new channels list on my Roku! The AV quality is High-Def and much better than streaming over my computer (which is prettygood-def). My only hope is that the rich “gold mine” of past messages becomes available on Roku as well.

    Three months ago, I’d never heard of LifeChurch.tv. Found it Googling for devotional content. I now regularly watch/study sermons on my own, with my wife and with our teenage daughters. We also have a group of four couples that meet once a week for a “Lifegroup” and use your content for study even though we’ve never been to a LifeChurch campus or network church or met any of you. I even had the opportunity to stream an entire sermon on my droid x to share with a homeless person. It was a blessing. What you are doing is working. Please keep it up. God bless you all.

    That’s great news, Bobby. Is Boxee in your future too? (You guessed it…I use Boxee rather than Roku)

    That’s pretty cool. This is the first place I’ve heard about ROKU and think it’s awesome that you can just turn it on or something and have Lifechurch.tv streaming on tv. I’m impressed.

    Another way to reach folks is have a HD podcast that can be downloaded on Tivo. Also have HD talk it over video.

    Why aren’t the videos working on the Chazown server?

    We just got our ROKU player and we were thrilled to see that LIFE CHURCH was on it as a channel!! So AWESOME!!

    cnet’s top 5 college electronics listed the roku as one of the top 5. And guess what channel was front and center when they showed the screen shot of the roku.

    I don’t attend LifeChurch but I love how you guys are taking the news to places that no one else will. Are you guys working on a tv and blu-ray apps?
