Watch Video on Demand on Apple TV

Video on Demand lets you watch any of the JW Broadcasting videos with full playback control (pause, fast forward, skip). Watch a single video or all the videos in a collection.

(Note: Your remote may not look the same as the diagrams of the Siri remote used in this tutorial.)

Select Video on Demand from the home screen to see the available video categories. Follow the steps below to find and watch videos:

 Find a Video

  • On your Siri Remote, swipe the Touch surface to navigate through the categories. The image of the highlighted category appears slightly larger than the rest.

  • Press the Touch surface to select the highlighted category.

Some videos can be found in multiple categories. For example, the video The Prodigal Returns may be found in Movies, Family, and Teenagers.

Each row represents a video collection. The name of the collection appears above the row.

Note: Some video collections extend past the right side of the screen.

  • Swipe Up or Down to navigate to a different collection.

  • Swipe Left or Right to scroll through the videos in a collection.

  • Each collection contains a Play All option. Select it to play all the videos in the collection, starting with the first one. Playback will stop when all the videos in the collection have been played.

  • Press the Touch surface to select a video and show the Video Details screen.

Select one of the following actions:

  • Play: Play the video from the beginning.
