Essentially, churches can now get their Vimeo content into homes everywhere using the Roku player.
…And the best part is? It’s darn cheap.
15$ a month will allow you to stream your churches content (sermons, small group or volunteer instructional vids, etc) into homes everywhere.
Read an excerpt from their press release after the jump:
With a channel on the Roku, your church could reach over 1 million current Roku owners, plus the hordes of new owners that will be unwrapping theirs this December 25th.
To most small to medium churches, a channel on an Internet TV box may seem more dream than reality due to the time and price involved, but a new product by the Christian development company UpperRoom Technologies may make that reality a little more reasonable. UpperRoom, in partnership with online video host Vimeo.com, released a channel for their sermon console Media Fusion. For the easy to swallow price of $10/month, plus an equally low $5/month subscription to Vimeo Plus, any church can put their church videos on their website with Media Fusion.
What’s the kicker? Each and every Media Fusion subscriber hosted through Vimeo is also included in the Media Fusion channel on the Roku device, essentially giving a Roku channel to any church that wants one for $15/month.
Sounds pretty sweet! We’ll have the full interview in our next podcast episode.
So, do you own a Roku player? Is this something your church would be interested in?
