Watch Streaming Content on Roku

The Streaming section of JW Broadcasting is similar to television in that it contains a number of channels with programmed content. If you want to control the playback (that is, to watch a video from the beginning and be able to pause, rewind, or fast forward), go to the Video on Demand section.

(Note: Diagrams of a Roku 3 remote are included throughout this tutorial. Your remote may differ slightly.)

Follow these instructions to get the most from JW Broadcasting’s streaming content on Roku:

 Watch a Streaming Channel

Select Streaming from the JW Broadcasting home page to load the list of channels.

Using the Left and Right arrows on your Roku remote, navigate through the channel carousel. The highlighted channel appears in the middle of your screen with an image, a title, and a brief description. Press the OK button to select the highlighted channel.

While the video loads, the channel menu displays the channel name and the titles of the current video and the three upcoming videos.

Tip: If the video has loaded and you want to dismiss the channel menu, you can press the Left arrow on your Roku remote.

 Select a Different Channel

When you are watching a streaming channel, there are two ways to get to another channel:

  • Go back to the channel selection screen

    Press the Left arrow or Back button to return to the channel selection screen. Use the Left and Right arrows to navigate through the channel carousel. Press the OK button to select a channel.

  • Surf to another channel

    While watching a streaming channel, press the Up or Down arrow to switch to the next or previous channel. As the video loads, the channel menu displays the channel name and video title. Press the Up or Down arrow to skip to another channel or wait for the video to load.

 Use the Channel Menu

While watching a streaming channel, press the Right arrow to access the channel menu.

In addition to the channel name and the titles of the current and upcoming videos, this menu contains two functions: Play From Beginning and Play With Subtitles. Use the Up or Down arrow to highlight an option. Press the OK button to select it.

  • Play From Beginning: Select this option to watch this video in the Video on Demand section. There, you can play the video from the beginning, pause, rewind, and fast forward.

  • Play With Subtitles: Select this option to start playing the current video with subtitles, and to turn on subtitles (when available) for all videos in the Streaming or Video on Demand sections. To disable subtitles, access this menu again and select Play Without Subtitles. (Note: This option only displays if subtitles are available for the current video.)

To close the channel menu, press the Left arrow, Right arrow, or Back button.
