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

(Note: Your Roku remote may look different from the one shown in the diagrams 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

Navigate through the category menu using the arrows on your remote. Press the OK button to select the highlighted category.

Some videos are listed 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.

Use your remote to navigate collections:

  • Up and Down: Navigate to a different collection.

  • Left and Right: 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.

Select a video to show the Video Details screen.

Select one of the following actions on this screen:

  • Resume: This option only displays if you previously stopped the video without reaching the end. Selecting it resumes the video from where you previously left off watching.

  • Play or Play from Beginning: Play the video from the beginning.

  • Play With Subtitles: This option displays if subtitles are available for the current video. Selecting it plays the video with subtitles and also enables subtitles (when available) for all videos in the Streaming and Video on Demand sections. To disable subtitles, select Play Without Subtitles.

  • Play All in the Collection: Play all the videos in the collection, starting with the current video. Playback will stop when all the videos in the collection have been played.

The row below the Video Details screen shows other videos in the current collection. Press Down to enter the collection row, Up to return to the Video Details screen.

When a video is playing in the Video on Demand section, you can control the playback with your remote as follows:

  • Play/Pause: Pause the video. Press the button again to resume the video.

  • Right: Skip forward a few seconds. Hold the button down to move quickly through the video. When the video progress indicator reaches the spot you want to watch, press the Play button or the OK button.

  • Fast Forward: Automatically skip forward through the video. When the video progress indicator reaches the spot you want to watch, press the Play button or the OK button.

  • Left: Skip back a few seconds. Hold the button down to move quickly toward the beginning of the video. When the video progress indicator reaches the spot you want to watch, press the Play button or the OK button.
