3ABN Streams Free on Roku!

featured-2013-Roku_WP

3ABN is happy to announce that all its channels will soon be available to viewers free of charge using the Roku streaming player!

This amazingly small set-top box uses a broadband Internet connection to deliver our Christian programming directly to your television set—and perhaps the best part is that you can take it with you and watch anywhere you can connect to the Internet!

In addition to 3ABN, 3ABN Proclaim, Dare to Dream, 3ABN Latino, the SonBeam Channel, and 3ABN Russia, the Roku box can be used to access most other Adventist channels as well. There are also hundreds of non-Adventist channels to choose from.

Several models of the Roku streaming player are available, ranging in price from $49.99 to $99.99. It’s simple to set up—just plug it in to a power outlet, add it to your Wi-Fi network, and plug it into virtually any TV set.* The on-screen guided set-up will have you watching in minutes!

Although 3ABN does not sell the Roku box, you may order it from the Roku website:  Roku.com

For those who don’t wish to order it online, they can be found in most large stores, like Walmart, Target, or Best Buy.

The expected release date for 3ABN’s channels on Roku is early July 2013.

*Note: Most Roku models have A/V plugs, while others have HDMI connectors designed for HDTV sets.

    It is back online? as last Sabbath Roku said to remove 3ABN as it is no longer available

    • Michael Prewitt

      The article has been updated. The channels are not available yet. There is a submission and setup process which will probably take a couple weeks. But we expect they will be available sometime in early July 2013.

    Can't get my Roku box to work.
    Keeps asking for payment!

    • Michael Prewitt

      Please contact Roku and/or MOIPTV for support. The company MOIPTV previously offered a package of channels including 3ABN for a monthly fee. However, starting in July you will be able to get all the 3ABN channels at no charge.

    It sounds like you are giving people the wrong impression when you tell them that "3ABN is Free on Roku", but you don't even mention that you have to pay MOIPTV $9.99 a month in order to get the 3abn channels. I do keep Moses Primo and the rest at MOIPTV in my prayers and in my thoughts.

    • Michael Prewitt

      No, the $9.99/month plan from MOIPTV has been retired. Starting soon, probably early July, anyone will be able to get all the 3ABN channels for free from Roku.

      Use to be a charge but it will be free I have a friend in Stayton who has programed one in the last month for her mother and she gets 6-7 SDA channels free. $10 bucks a month for a lot more than this but worth it compared to what is on regular TV.

    REALLY? OH PRAISE THE LORD. Does that mean I won't have to turn on the computer to be tempted to go to games that I really don't like going to on the Sabbath Day? OH tears of joy. Best news I have read all day. HAPPY SABBATH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I was wondering how to add the 3abn channel in roku. I cannot find it anywhere. Please put up a guide.

    • Michael Prewitt

      It is not yet available. Stay tuned, it should start appearing in Roku's channel list in the next couple weeks.

    • Donna Blanton

      When you are in the Roku store, using the menu and arrow keys on the remote, scroll down until you get to the Religion and Spirituality section, then arrow right until you get to MOiPTV, you will see the 3ABN and Hope channel icons. Click on the icons and you will find the programming for 3ABN but the Hope channel is not there since it is in its own section now. Tell Roku to put MOiPTV in your favorites section and you won't have to hunt for it again. Roku is very user friendly.

      All of 3ABN channels are working. I am not sure SonBean is working but I think it is. Let us know when you find it.

      Please note that Donna's method is a temporary workaround, and the MOIPTV set of channels will probably be removed soon. 3ABN is introducing its own set of 3ABN channels that does not involve MOIPTV.

    What a nice surprise to find 3ABN and a variety of other Adventist channels available on ROKU. I had been searching for another outlet in order to pick this up.

  7. JULIE KRONBAUER

    Hi Goodmorning I would just like to know if this ROKU device can work here in Guyana South America.

    Thanking you for a response.

    I went to the Roku website and didn't find 3ABN or any of the other Adventist channels on their list. I would do this in a minute if I was absolutely sure we could get 3ABN. Do you know what they are listed under? Do we have to subscribe to something? Thanks for your help.

    Lori

    • Michael Prewitt

      It will probably be a couple weeks before 3ABN's channels appear in the Roku channel listings. We are in the process of setting up the channels now.

    • Donna Blanton

      Hi Lori,

      3ABN is on Roku and you can currently watch it. Just follow the instructions listed below and you will find 3ABN. No, you do not have to subscribe to anything after the Roku box is purchased. All 3ABN channels are free on Roku!

      When you are in the Roku store, using the menu and arrow keys on the remote, scroll down until you get to the Religion and Spirituality section, then arrow right until you get to MOiPTV, you will see the 3ABN and Hope channel icons.

    Very cool! I know that for a while this channel was available as a private channel, per roku private channels.com, but now you guys are live! Awesome. I wonder, does the channel code "3ANGELSLIVE" still work or should people delete that channel and reinstall this one? Thanks!

    • Michael Prewitt

      I would delete that channel and add the new, official 3ABN channel when it appears in the next couple weeks.

  10. Eddy Lauture

    How can one get the 3ABN program without ROKU. I seemed to recall you used to sell satellite dish that could enable one to get most christians channel.

    • Michael Prewitt

      3ABN stopped selling dishes some years ago. However, other companies do sell satellite dishes that can receive 3ABN. You can find more information about that here: http://3abn.org/faq/satellite/. You can also watch online, here on this website.

    what is the free 3abn channel on Roku? do you have a link?

  12. ctwells47

    I was so glad to find out that Roku carried 3ABN…we were over-joyed when he set it up and were finally able to view the Adventist stations…then, as if things couldn't get better….we were notified that the monthly fee was being waived and we could now watch these stations for free!!! Praise the Lord!

  13. Michael Prewitt

    PLEASE NOTE THAT ANY COMMENTS ABOVE ABOUT THE MOIPTV CHANNEL ARE TEMPORARY WORKAROUNDS. I believe the MOIPTV channel will be removed in the near future; however, 3ABN is launching its own package of 3ABN channels, which will also be free. 3ABN's channels should appear sometime this month, in July 2013.

    So – if a house has internet it works?

    We have Wi-Fi – is that needed for this box to work? And is it true, i don't have to turn on the computer to get it on my TV?

    I too, am tempted to check FaceBook, my emails & other simple but worldly things if I turn on my computer to watch my favorite SDA websites.

    God bless y'all!

    I was successfully streaming your radio station thru TuneIn on my iPad mini, iPhone and my Sony PC. Now I keep getting an error message on all devices. Your international stations continue to work no problem. I love 3abn radio, and being able to listen at work is such a blessing! Has this streaming avenue been discontinued? Is there no more internet option available?
    Thank you for your dedication to spreading the Good News. He is coming soon!

      I just tried the 3ABN Radio and Radio 3ABN Latino broadcasts in the TuneIn app for iPad, and both played just fine. It may have been a temporary glitch.
